Carbonite Celebrates Backup Day By Helping Small Businesses Save Money On Cloud Backup

Stocks in this article: CARB

BOSTON, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As Backup Day -- a global movement encouraging computer users to protect their digital files -- approaches on March 31, a study from Spiceworks™ sponsored by Carbonite found that data protection continues to be a challenge for small to medium sized businesses. Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of cloud backup solutions, reminds small businesses that backing up their files can be a cost- and time-efficient practice that protects their most valuable data.

Small businesses are unsure about data backupA recent Spiceworks study found that 30 percent of small businesses believe their backup plan is insufficient. And in fact, they may be correct -- 45 percent of respondents said their organization had experienced data loss and 14 percent were never able to restore their lost business information.

According to the study, one of the reasons small businesses lack a formal disaster recovery plan is because they do not have the budget.  When you consider that it costs the average small business on average $9,000 to recover their data, an affordable and reliable backup plan like Carbonite Business, which starts at just $229 per year, is an inexpensive way to protect valuable data before it is too late.  

"The most important asset any business has is their data. Without it, businesses can't keep track of inventory, can't invoice customers, can't run payroll and can't ensure that their business goals are being met," said Pete Lamson, SVP of Cloud Backup, Carbonite.  "Backup Day is a good reminder to take a look at your current data disaster plan and backup strategy so you can protect your files before the unthinkable happens."

Carbonite offers affordable business data backup plansCarbonite Business automatically backs up an unlimited number of computers for an annual flat fee of $229 with 250GB of storage included. Carbonite BusinessPremier backs up an unlimited number of computers and servers with 500GB of storage included for $599 per year. Should storage needs surpass the GBs provided, businesses can easily add supplemental storage packs to expand their protection. Plus, with its recent acquisition of Zmanda, a leading provider of server and database backup, Carbonite is able to more fully address the backup needs of small businesses.
