BOSTON, July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CompTIA Breakaway, Las Vegas -- Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of online backup solutions for consumers and small to medium sized businesses, is building on its commitment to the channel by helping its online backup resellers leverage the powerful Carbonite brand. The newly launched Carbonite Reseller Program now features a Resource Center with a range of co-marketing and training materials for its Authorized Carbonite Resellers to work with.
"We launched the new Carbonite Reseller Program in June to help resellers deliver easy-to-use and affordable online backup to their small business and consumer clients. With hundreds of new Authorized Resellers onboarded since the launch, we're very excited by the positive response from the reseller community," said David Hauser, director of channel programs for Carbonite.

The Resource Center features three sections of materials – "For You," "For Your Prospects" and "For New & Existing Customers" – to help resellers easily locate information for any part of their sales cycle. Carbonite will continue to add materials to the Resource Center to support its online backup resellers in selling cloud backup to their clients.Resellers Building Their Business with CarboniteThe new Carbonite Reseller program was launched just one month ago and is already receiving positive feedback from Carbonite Resellers. David Charron, President of Compusult, Inc., a small business consulting firm in Southwest Harbor, Maine stated, "I use lots of reseller portals, and Carbonite's new reseller dashboard is by far the best. I have become so jaded from the others that I just assumed it was going to be a challenge to use Carbonite's, but it actually makes sense and is easy to use. I'm really loving the product – it blows away the competitors." "We were recently burned when one of our client's critical database files were accidentally deleted. To make matters worse, we then discovered that the network backups had not been working – no one knew the client's tapes were full. Now, we will start pushing Carbonite Online Backup to more of our clients and we will be putting a link on our web page as a preferred service," said Ed Jaworski, Partner at SMB Partners, LLC, which serves small businesses in Massachusetts. "I can tell my clients that with Carbonite, 'Just set it and forget it – you're protected.' Plus, I've even been saved by the remote access feature myself, when I needed to retrieve a file I left back on my office computer while at a client's site."
