BOSTON, April 27, 2012 –/– Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of online backup solutions for consumers and small and medium sized businesses, announced that the Edison Awards(TM) has honored Carbonite Business with a 2012 Silver award for innovation. Carbonite Business and BusinessPremier are cloud backup solutions designed specifically for small-and-medium sized businesses (SMBs). The flat-rate pricing and a variety of features address small and medium sized businesses’ unique combination of backup requirements, budget restraints, as well as security and accessibility needs.

The distinguished awards symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Alva Edison, inspiring America’s drive to remain in the forefront of innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.

“More than any year, this year’s finalists and winners demonstrate the enormous value of teamwork, experimentation, customer focus and market awareness,” said Tom Stat, chairman of the Edison Awards’ Steering Committee. “It’s exciting to see companies like Carbonite continuing Thomas Edison’s legacy of challenging conventional thinking.”

“SMBs generate a significant amount of critical, irreplaceable data and rarely have the resources or the time to properly protect it. Carbonite Business combines our approach to consumer cloud backup and our intrinsic SMB experience to provide simple, superior data protection at a price designed for SMB budgets,” said Pete Lamson, senior vice president of small business for Carbonite. “We are honored to be recognized by the Edison Awards for bringing this ground-breaking online backup solution to SMBs and look forward to delivering more innovations to our customers.”

Carbonite Business offers SMBs a better way to back up their valuable data with reliable, affordable options starting at just $229 per year. Carbonite Business backs up an unlimited number of computers for a predictable, flat fee with 250GB of storage included. Carbonite BusinessPremier backs up an unlimited number of computers and servers with 500GB of storage included. Businesses can easily add supplemental storage packs should their storage needs surpass the GBs provided with their selected service.
