Databases contain information that is most crucial to a business- from client
data and financial records to email and payroll. Yet, research from a recent
Carbonite Study* shows:

  oDatabase Data is at Risk: 25 percent of small businesses with at least one
    database (Exchange server or SQL Server) have lost or accidentally deleted
    data from it.
  oDatabase Backup is a Must: Small businesses indicated that the ability to
    back up SQL databases (79 percent) and Microsoft Exchange (66 percent)
    ranks high in importance when selecting a backup solution. 

A Complete Cloud Database Backup Solution for Small Businesses
"Based on small business market needs, a cloud backup solution that safeguards
both a business' computers and its critical databases is imperative. But for
resellers serving this market, being able to deliver a solution easily,
affordably and securely implemented through one vendor is ideal," said David
Hauser, Senior Director of Channel Development."Our Database Backup solution
provides Carbonite reseller partners with greater functionality that will help
them better meet the growing needs of their small business clients all through
one platform and provider."

Resellers can now sell Database Backup as an add-on to Carbonite's
