One of Carbonite’s main missions is to help small- and-medium-sized business (SMB) owners protect their critical business data. In 2013, the company expanded its business product offerings with the launch of Carbonite Server backup solution. This new business solution provides SMB’s with enterprise-class, automatic database server backup capabilities to the cloud.
In simple terms, with a Carbonite Server plan, SMB’s will be able to backup all their valuable business data at a much faster rate to the company’s remotely-located data centers. This is done automatically in the background, even while all your computers, workstations, and servers are being used. There is no need to assign someone to do all this manually and on a regular basis, thus freeing up more resources and manpower for more important business tasks and functions.
Furthermore, there is no need for your company to keep up with expensive in-house datacenter infrastructure upgrades as all these will be taken cared of remotely in Carbonite’s highly secure, state-of-the-art datacenters in Boston, thus saving your company further investments and capital expenditures.
