as One of CRN's 2014 Channel Chiefs

BOSTON, March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carbonite, Inc. (Nasdaq:CARB), a
leading provider of backup and recovery solutions for small businesses, today
announced that David Hauser, Senior Director, Channels and New Markets has
been named one of CRN's 2014 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most
powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly
responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization,
while evangelizing the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT
Industry.

Distribution channel and increased marketing support for partners drove
program growth

One of the most significant initiatives Hauser led in 2013 was Carbonite's
entrance into the distribution channel. Carbonite built out its distribution
team, and launched its first partnership with Tech Data's TDCloud group in
August 2013. Hauser led the integration, and has since launched similar
programs with D & H Distributing, Co. and SYNNEX Corporation, which increased
exponentially the number of VARs and MSPs who offer Carbonite to their
business clients.

To support the business growth of all of these resellers, Hauser also led an
initiative to increase the marketing support Carbonite provides to its channel
partners, including content syndication on partner websites, email campaigns,
marketing collateral and webinars.

"Channel partners want to work with vendors who are invested in their
success," said David Maffei, Vice President, Global Channels, Carbonite. "Dave
understands the opportunities and challenges that our partners face every day,
and is constantly focused on how we can help our partners grow their
businesses and meet their clients' individual needs with Carbonite's business
backup and recovery solutions."
