Zoolz – Safety First

The Zoolz cloud storage service is both targeted to home and business users, for whom safety is of primary importance. From the first look you take upon the platform you can easily determine that Zoolz is quite different from other online backup services. It offers high-end features which are mostly targeted towards business users, but the pricing is quite fair and even non-business clients can afford the Zoolz' professional services. And by “fair” we mean a really flexible pricing model, in which you pay for what you use. You can upgrade and downgrade your storage capacities depending on your current needs.

What is innovative about the service is that it offers two kinds of storage: Instant Storage and Cold Storage. By the way, the so called “Cold Storage” is proprietary to Zoolz. The cheapest plan that you can get gives you 50GB Instant Storage per 1 user, but if you also need a Cold Storage space, you will have to pay some more.

In terms of security, Zoolz offers robust data protection and encryption, which is trusted by large organizations all over the world. Their protection covers and even surpasses any legal requirements, which is why the service is preferred by users, for whom security is most essential.

To ensure the safety of your data, Zoolz provides the so called continuous backup – the system monitors the changes you make on your files and backups your data at the moment you update them. There is no limit to what you backups – you can backup your embedded drives, as well as external drives and your multiple computers. The backup modes that the system provides are: turbo, smart, battery saving and presentation.

The difference between these modes is the amount of system resources it uses. The system does not impose any file size limit. You can configure the types of files you want to backup and those you don't want to. Users who hold the administration rights can specify the ones who are allowed to backup files, and the types of files they can backup. Admins can also configure users' rights and privileges on the online storage platform. They can also set storage limits to various users.

For now the Zoolz data backup system offers mobile applications for Android and iOS. Apps for Windows Phone and Blackberry are promised to come on the market soon.

With Zoolz file sharing and link generation is very easy. You can add additional protection to the files you share using a password. Also, you can set expiration time for your links.

Zoolz provides specialized software, through which you can copy and encrypt your data on an external drive and ship it to Zools for processing your files onto the cloud. This is especially helpful for companies which possess a lot of sensitive data.

Probably the most interesting service offered by Zoolz is the so called Cold Storage. Shortly, this is used for backing up files that are rarely used and don't need frequent updating. It is intended for archiving purposes and its price is lower than the one for Instant Storage.

Upon registration you are offered a 14-day test trial during which you can familiarize yourself with the file storage platform. When you sign up you are offered to download the desktop application. When installed, you get the following start screen where you can select multiple features.

At this point you can select the locations through which data backup will be performed, as well as the type of files that will be backed up. You can also select Cold storage or Instant storage for your digital belongings. For your free trial you get 14 days for testing, 1 user and 50GB free instant storage space.

Generally, the basic upload and backup of your files is performed through the desktop application. Once uploaded, your files are safe on the online storage platform. Through it, you can easily share your stuff with other users and enter restrictions for your files and folders.

Zoolz is so abundant it terms of features, that you may need to spend some time digging into the platform to find out all the options that are available for you. It may sound a little complicated, but we definitely believe it is worth it.
