Zoolz Business, a cloud backup service by Genie9

Zoolz Business is about Zoolz, a cloud backup service by Genie9 and is a service that draws its advantage from Amazon Cold Storage in order to reduce storage costs. Zoolz has shifted focus from home users to business users since their business model best fits for these business users; but they still offer home and business accounts.

How to get started on Zoolz

For this, one has to visit Zoolz website and create an account; 14 day free trial is offered to enable you to check if this is what your business needs for having a backup and for storing files in the cloud.

All you have to give is basic information and contact information on the sign up page.

After creating an account you will be able to download the Zoolz desktop application and start the set up. Though the website focuses more on business service, home users have to locate in the footer menu for home options.

Installing Zoolz business

After your free Zoolz account has been created you can download the desktop software to begin backing up your computer. They support Windows and Mac currently.

Installing Zoolz is quite easy; you will have to download the application from the website and just follow the installer.

Once the installation is complete you will have to login using account information you have given to create your account on Zoolz website. Now that you are logged in you will be able to set up your initial backup.

Backing up

After the initial Zoolz business setup is completed the backup process begins. You can either select from out of a number of files sets or select specific folders for selecting files for backup. You are also given an option to select which of the files have to be kept in instant storage and which of them in your cold storage.

You can also specify how often you require the Zoolz backup to run and also if you wish to use a private encryption key or just go with the standard Zoolz encryption password. Once all this is done, the backup will scan all the selected files and begin the process of backing up.

On the whole the users find the backup setup is pretty easy for getting most of the files selected. Addition of file sets is found to be useful and those that wish to have backup of other specified folders can do so too.

Some feel that addition of cold storage option could be confusing;  IT persons may not feel it confusing but non-IT people may find it so.

Restoration

Zoolz business can in the case of data disaster, restore your files from Zoolz. You can make use of the web portal to download your files even if you are far off from your computer. All you have to do is login and select the files or folders you wish to download. But if you wish to restore files kept in cold storage the process may take a longer while though both are similar.
