possible in the event of data loss," said David Friend, Chairman and CEO,

industry leader in speed, and the third party tests confirm that Carbonite
Server backup led the pack. Carbonite's server backup solutions back up data
2.4 times faster than our nearest competitor, and restores data 29 times
faster than the slowest competitor."
In order to test Carbonite Server backup against Mozy Pro, CrashPlan Pro and
SOS Online Backup, The Tolly Group ran tests using a 54.6GB dataset that
included multimedia, office documents, compressed archives, web server data,
and system files and applications. Carbonite Server backed up and restored the
data faster than all other vendors tested. Carbonite's speed advantage in the
backup tests ranged from 2.4 to 12.5 times faster, and restore speeds were 3.1
to 29 times faster than competitors.
