Carbonite Server Backup

In our case it was a perfect fit for not just our server backup, but we can log into a main console and check on backups on PC's thru out the company

  • It is very easy to select shared network drives. If you have it mapped on your profile, it finds them just as you find them each day as you use the network drives.
  • Click and go!
  • The screen is very easy to understand.
  • I love how you can validate your backup.
  • I can do a quick restore to an external local hard drive to test my data being backed up.

Cons

  • Single file restore has always been an issue but hopefully will be added soon.
  • Physical server backup restoring has always been tricky but achievable.

  • Overall I think Carbonite is pretty easy to use once you have been in their system a few times.

Return on Investment

  • We have managed to scale up the size of our environment without the need for extra admin overhead.
  • Over 99% backups complete.
  • Solution is robust and quick to scale to meet demands.

  • We haven't actually had to recover anything so we have not used the service as intended. So currently it is purely a cost with no return yet.
