Berkeley Data Systems is the global leader in online data backup for home and business. As creators of the award-winning Mozy and MozyPro backup solutions, Berkeley Data provides affordable data protection services to more than 230,000 customers worldwide.

In early 2005, Josh Coates founded the company with the mission to backup every computer worldwide. In order to build an infrastructure to support millions of people, a reliable, multi-petabyte storage architecture was needed. Coates went to work on the bleeding edge of development in petabyte technology and built a system that has reinvented large scale storage.

In November 2005, the company quietly opened for service. Immediately, bloggers discussed the new free online backup service and by the spring of 2006, PC Magazine awarded Mozy the Editors Choice Award for best remote backup.

In December 2006, Mozy came out of beta and introduced its unlimited capacity online backup offering. The service met high demand as it received positive reviews from Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal, David Pogue of The New York Times, Brian Bergstein of the Associate Press, Jim Martin of PC World, and Consumer Bob of NBC.

Within 90 days following the launch of the MozyPro backup solution for business in early 2007, the company announced a global contract to backup 350,000 desktops, laptops and small servers for GE, the second largest company in the world. Today, more than 5,000 businesses backup with MozyPro.

Looking for database hosting

the company I'm doing work for is expecting a 20 times increase in  
data and seeks a 10 times increase in performance. Having pushed our  
database server to the limit daily for the past few months we have  
decided we'd prefer to be database users rather than database server  
admins. :-)

Are you or can you recommend a database hosting company that is good  
for clients that require more power than what a single database  
server can offer?

Re: Looking for database hosting

Nik, you may be underestimating just how much performance can be obtained from a single database server. For example, an IBM p595 server connected to an array of ds8300 storage devices could reasonably be expected to provide several orders of magnitude more performance when compared to commodity hardware. In commodity space (albeit, just barely), a 16 core opteron running (the admittedly yet-to-be-released) FreeBSD 7, and a suitably provisioned SAN should also enormously outperform a beige-box solution, and at a fraction of the cost. If it's performance you care about then the pgsql-performance list (which I have cc'd) is the place to talk about it.

I realize this doesn't address your desire to get out of database server administration. I am not aware of any company which provides database hosting, further I'm not entirely convinced that's a viable business solution. The technical issues (security, latency and reliability are the ones that immediately come to mind) associated with a hosted database server solution suggest to me that this would not be economically viable. The business issues around out-sourcing a critical, if not central component of your architecture seem, at least to me, to be insurmountable.
