Dropmyemail, the most comprehensive email backup solution in the cloud, currently backs up a quarter of a billion emails a day for nearly a million users. Bringing its award-winning services throughout Japan is GMO Cloud, an Internet hosting company in 16 subsidiaries spread across 7 countries.
GMO Cloud will first invest in Dropmyemail by taking part in the convertible note round of funding. Having investment from GMO Cloud benefits Dropmyemail by providing more cash to scale up. GMO Cloud will resell Dropmyemail’s corporate email backup solution, Dropmyemail Business, to its existing business customers. With advanced email backup management, email usage reports / audits, military-grade security and unlimited storage, Dropmyemail Business is perfect for all small, medium or large enterprise email backup needs.
GMO Cloud will also host Dropmyemail’s ever-increasing dataload. Dropmyemail will move its massive storage to GMO Cloud’s cloud platform and utilize GMO Cloud’s GlobalSign’s SSL (secure socket layer). Having GMO Cloud host the data will reduce the current expediture for Dropmyemail and keep the data even more secure, while GMO Cloud gains a new client
with fast growing data storage needs.
