ZManda CEO Chander Kent tells CBS News & CNET Technology Analyst Larry Magid about this company's new cloud backup service.

Zmanda CEO Chander Kant tells CBS News & CNET Technology Analyst Larry Magid how his company is providing online "cloud" data backup services for small businesses. Rather than store the data itself, Zmanda is contracting with Amazon's S3 Simple Storage Service to store its customers' data.

The company sells an easy to use Windows program that connects directly with Amazon's S3 backup servers. The software costs $50 and the storage costs 20 cents per gigabyte per month.
