Intermedia Online Backup also includes a desktop version – launched in April 2011 – that enables companies to automatically back up files on their employees’ desktops and laptops. The service is powered by Mozy™, an online backup service from EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC).

Businesses set up and manage Online Backup – both the server and desktop versions – from Intermedia’s HostPilot® Control Panel. HostPilot is used to manage all Intermedia cloud services, including the company’s popular hosted Exchange email and VoIP calling services. Intermedia’s integrated approach gives companies access to the cloud services required to run their business, sparing them from having to use multiple control panels or pay multiple bills. Read more
