BOSTON, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of cloud backup solutions for consumers and small businesses, announced today that Database Backup is now available for its online backup reseller partners to offer to their small business clients. With the Carbonite Database Backup solution, resellers can deliver a comprehensive cloud backup solution and ensure their clients can rest easy knowing their backup is protected offsite - securely, automatically and affordably.
Databases contain information that is most crucial to a business - from client data and financial records to email and payroll. Yet, research from a recent Carbonite Study* shows:
Database Data is at Risk: 25 percent of small businesses with at least one database (Exchange server or SQL Server) have lost or accidentally deleted data from it.
Database Backup is a Must: Small businesses indicated that the ability to back up SQL databases (79 percent) and Microsoft Exchange (66 percent) ranks high in importance when selecting a backup solution.
A Complete Cloud Database Backup Solution for Small Businesses "Based on small business market needs, a cloud backup solution that safeguards both a business' computers and its critical databases is imperative. But for resellers serving this market, being able to deliver a solution easily, affordably and securely implemented through one vendor is ideal," said David Hauser, Senior Director of Channel Development. "Our Database Backup solution provides Carbonite reseller partners with greater functionality that will help them better meet the growing needs of their small business clients all through one platform and provider."
Resellers can now sell Database Backup as an add-on to Carbonite's BusinessPremier cloud backup solution for small businesses. Carbonite Database Backup will back up a range of databases, virtual machines and applications, including Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange Server, Sharepoint, Hyper-V, Oracle and MySQL, and provides protection for an unlimited number of databases and live applications.
Carbonite Reseller Program Overview "As we continue to add features and functionality across Carbonite's offerings, we have seen an incredible response to the program and in fact, our program has resulted in an increase of more than 50 percent in our reseller partner community since June of last year," continued Hauser.
The Carbonite Reseller Program delivers flexible account management tools for its resellers, and arms them with secure, affordable cloud backup that is easy to deploy and to manage for their clients. With the new Carbonite Reseller Program, cloud backup resellers can offer Carbonite's complete line of Home and Business solutions - which includes Home, HomePlus and HomePremier for home or home office users, and Business and BusinessPremier for small business users. The full range of solutions gives Carbonite online backup resellers more options to best meet their clients' varied needs. Resellers are given access to a dedicated account management team, marketing materials through the online Dashboard, and a range of free webinars designed to help resellers build their businesses.
