Latest Release of Carbonite Server Backup Offers Powerful Yet Simple Data Protection for SMBs and New Opportunities for Channel Partners
BOSTON, MA – February 4, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ – Carbonite, Inc. (Nasdaq:CARB), a leading provider of cloud and hybrid business continuity solutions, today announced support for Office 365 that enables small-to-midsized businesses (SMBs) to protect critical business data created and hosted in the cloud. The latest release of Carbonite Server Backup delivers hybrid backup for Microsoft Exchange Online in Office 365, providing SMBs the data protection they need as business processes shift to the cloud.
IDC predicts adoption of Office 365 will double to 30 percent of all U.S. small businesses in 2015. As a result, hybrid backup of cloud-based data is becoming increasingly critical in this market. While cloud providers such as Microsoft offer protection from infrastructure failure, they cannot protect against user errors, malware attacks, or other drivers of data loss. Carbonite Server Backup ensures cloud-based email and other Exchange data in Office 365 are always available.
“Hybrid backup of cloud-hosted data has to date been a capability only larger firms with more complex IT departments could utilize,” said Chris Chute, Vice President of IDC’s SMB Cloud and Mobility Practice. “Now SMB IT managers and owners can utilize hybrid backup with Carbonite Server Backup, which offers an extra level of data protection that mitigates the risk associated with a single point of data recovery. SMB IT administrators and owners can rest easy, knowing they are not entrusting one service provider with all of their critical information and intellectual property.”
Carbonite’s support of Office 365 also enables channel partners to better meet the needs of their rapidly expanding Office 365 customer base. Carbonite Server Backup delivers reliable and affordable protection for critical local and Office 365 data in a single, comprehensive solution developed specifically for SMBs.
“The ability to offer a hybrid backup solution that protects Office 365 data at an affordable price will be a strategic advantage for us,” said Carbonite partner Feddly Jeanniton, owner of FAJSYSTEMS, LLC. “Current Office 365 backup solutions either are developed for large enterprise customers or do not offer the reliability and convenience of hybrid backup. Carbonite enables us to deliver a more complete data protection solution to our small to midsized customers, and to drive our business forward.”
Carbonite Server Backup enables businesses to easily and affordably protect against data loss with a hybrid functionality that backs up data to the cloud, locally to a physical piece of hardware or networked drive, or to both. In addition to Office 365, Carbonite Server Backup supports servers (physical and virtual), databases, live applications, NAS drives, Hyper-V, and external hard drives.

“Carbonite continually invests in new technologies to meet the ever-evolving needs of the SMB,” said Brad Meiseles, Carbonite senior vice president of product and engineering. “As growing numbers of SMBs adopt cloud-based applications for business productivity, they require powerful yet simple solutions that protect against user error, corrupted data, and unforeseen downtime. The support for Office 365 within Carbonite Server Backup further underscores our commitment to keeping businesses in business.”
