For channel partners, the Carbonite Appliance is a cost-effective,
easy-to-deploy solution that allows partners to provide centrally-managed
local and cloud data backup to their small business clients. The Carbonite
Appliance is fully managed by the channel partner, allowing partners to
increase their interaction with clients, empowering them to strengthen
existing relationships and providing the opportunity to drive revenue through
business growth. With the new hybrid backup appliance, Carbonite is providing
partners unparalleled control and a solution that is designed to keep their
clients' businesses moving and take their own businesses to the next level.

"We are reinforcing our commitment to our channel partners and the small
business market with the launch of the channel-exclusive Carbonite Appliance,"
said David Maffei, vice president, Global Channel Sales, Carbonite. "The
Carbonite Appliance is a simple, secure hybrid backup solution that's just
right for our partners' small business clients. The local data recovery and
automatic cloud integration allow partners to protect their clients' most
important asset – their business-critical data. The complete bare metal backup
and recovery ensures small business clients can get right back to business."

The Carbonite Appliance provides partners and their small business clients
with the following benefits:

  *Hybrid Solution: Carbonite provides an appliance for local backups, and
    automatically copies all stored data to the cloud – ensuring businesses
    can get data back quickly and completely. The appliance includes 1TB of
    local storage plus 500GB of cloud storage.
  *Simplicity: Setting up the appliance is done in three easy steps.
    Carbonite provides the partner with an intuitive interface that makes it
    easy to configure, monitor and manage the backup and restore processes.
  *Affordability: No hardware fees, upfront costs or per-server license fees.
    The Carbonite Appliance meets small businesses' needs, as well as their
    budgets.
  *Speed: Bare metal recovery ensures that a business can get back up and
    running quickly by restoring the full system, including operating systems,
    applications, databases and files to new or existing hardware.
  *Security: Data is transferred using SSL encryption and stored with AES-256
    encryption server-side.

David Levenson, owner of Creative Computer Consulting in Mass., uses the
Carbonite Appliance to ensure that his clients have the ability to quickly
recover from data loss or equipment failure.

"I believe in providing image backups – not just data backups," said Levenson.
"A proper image backup includes the ability to do an image restore on
different hardware. Restoring to dissimilar hardware with the Carbonite
Appliance is easy and it decreases the impact of downtime on the business and
has other benefits such as saving my clients' time, money and a lot of
anguish."

Levenson finds the appliance easy to set up and manage, and says the feature
set makes sense for many of his midsize business clients. Backup schedules and
their statuses are easily accessed through a web-based dashboard that is
accessible from any onsite computer.

"Many other appliances tend to be too complex and expensive for this
particular market," said Levenson. "Other comparative solutions may
incorporate many moving parts and administrative costs and the totals may
exceed the cost of this appliance. The Carbonite Appliance is a simple and
powerful solution that handles creating image backups of Windows Servers,
storing them on the appliance, and sending all of that data to the cloud."

demonstrating the solution at the upcoming Microsoft Worldwide Partner
Conference 2014 (Booth #1901). For more information, contact the Carbonite
