Vodafone announces cloud-based service, Vodafone PC Backup

Vodafone has announced a new partnership with Decho Corporation which will enable its business and consumer customers to back up digital content from their computer to a remotely hosted site.

Once a customer has backed-up their digital content they will always be able to access it, even if their primary device is lost, stolen or otherwise unavailable. Customers will also be able to view and share the content from their account via the web browser of a PC, laptop or netbook in the future, reducing the need to transfer between devices.

Dubbed Vodafone PC Backup, the services will be available in consumer and business versions across several different territories over the next few months. The business version will also be supported by a web-based management console to enable an administrator to centrally control storage allocations and policies for multiple users.
