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

Alternatives Considered

Actifio is quicker to deploy easier to manage and capacity plan with less components to keep patched.

We use Symantec Backup Exec which backs up to an external hard drive. We wanted a secondary, offsite backup and chose Carbonite as it was reasonably priced and it suited our business needs at this time.
