    Choosing a Carbonite business plan shouldn’t be so confusing. The Pro Bundle Plan is affordable enough for any small business that intends to grow in the future. You can’t go wrong with the Pro Bundle plan because it paves way for any kind of expansion without the high cost of maintenance.

    • rfranklin says:

      Yes, you are absolutely right. The Carbonite Server Pro Bundle is perfect for businesses that intend to grow in the future. It’s definitely an affordable plan considering the servers will also be backed up.

  2. john d. says:

    The Server Pro Bundle combines both the Pro and Server Plans. I get to back up unlimited number of servers, workstations, and other devices in the office without worrying about any additional fees.

  3. ATJ says:

    Our business is operating at small scale. Actually, we’re just starting out. We opted for the Carbonite Pro. So far, we’re very happy with it. All our computers are backed up. The automatic backup works well for us. It gives us more time to work.

  4. Chris T. says:

    We’ve recently just upgraded to Carbonite Server Pro Bundle. We’ll be hiring more people and adding more computers in the next two years. The Carbonite Server Pro Bundle can give us a good leeway for the additional staff and office equipment.

  5. M. Woodrose says:

    The Carbonite Server Pro Bundle plan is not a bad deal at all. Pro-rated on a monthly basis, it’s only costing us about 84 dollars and we get to back up unlimited number of computers, external hard drives, NAS devices, servers, etc. That is an awesome deal for 500 gigabytes of online storage.
