Product Details

What is Carbonite Server?

Carbonite Server (also replacing the former EVault products acquired from Seagate in 2016) is a full backup and discovery solution. Designed to recover anything from a single file to an entire system with the click of a button, Carbonite Server users can protect virtually any type of file on both physical and virtual servers, NAS, SAN and external hard drives. The vendor’s value proposition is that their solution assures that users without an IT department and those that are the IT department can rest easy knowing their data is safe. According to the vendor, Carbonite Server is easy to configure and schedule automatic backups (full, incremental and differential) that require zero user interaction. Users can choose local, cloud or hybrid backup targets.

Carbonite Server's direction wasn't really for cloud companies as they are more specialized in robust local backup services. I'm a novice when it comes to server backups and replication, but have learned and picked up a lot from talking to the customer center compared to Veeam where it's mostly just self-learning reading lots of documentation which could be overwhelming at times. We started using Veeam as most of our on-prem servers are ceasing operations as we slowly transition to the cloud. I would still use Carbonite as a fall-back option just in case the cloud fails us. Our company cannot afford to have downtimes as we work closely with a lot of contractors and every minute counts.

As the Carbonite Server Backup tool is one of the best among all backup tools in the market, we like to opt it for several customers. It's very user friendly and most reliable. Deployment part and support is also good.

We used Symantec before EVault and our backups were large and took a long time. We were not confident in incremental backups given the amount of data we have, so we needed something that would take a backup and then only grab the changes. Carbonite EVault does that for us.

We're in the financial industry, so there are certain standards that we make sure we're following. Outsourcing that role to a specialist in the area helps lighten our work load to we can concentrate on day-to-day business activities and not outside regulations. Flexibility, cost, stability, simplicity, reputation and security features are all things we look for and though there are many ways of tackling disaster recovery, we felt EVault provided a solution that checked those boxes with a high level of confidence. We also felt that they'd be able to grow with us as well.

We have looked at Symantec Backup Exec and actually use it for some of our less important systems. We are currently taking a look at Veeam as an alternative to EVault because of the real-time replication to live machines that Veeam may be able to provide. But so far, EVault has served our needs and will continue to do so.

Went out of business but they had a sweet appliance that could be moved and the agents could still find it through a cloud/web site that directed it to it's serial number. Made it great to backup laptops too since they moved around and it wasn't always possible to reconfigure firewalls everywehre

  • netbak
Netbak is a great product but we also had a secondary issue of having to backup several PC's on site and at remote locations. Carbonite helped with both and gave us one central admin console to be able to check the progress of all our backups, where netbak would have required us to setup a tunnel or use the internet to move data back to our main office.

Much easier, I love how easy it is to verify my backups. With some other products, I did not really know how they were doing because it was too time-consuming to verify the backup. With carbonite, I get email reports every day with any issues and with successes! That is going to my phone which is very convenient.

We used Symantec many years ago, so I don't know that I can compare the two fairly. Backup Exec was hard to use and we backed up on tapes, rather than in the cloud. I feel much more confident in the backups that we have with Carbonite.

We need a license for each server to backup to tape and then had to run it all at once here its not tied to key but to the amount of space I use ... more space, more money etc. I also don't have to worry about a license not registering, and I can run the backups all at once or layer them since they run independently.

Carbonite Server Backup performs exceptionally well versus Barracuda Backup. One of the best features is the cost savings of not having to buy expensive equipment to keep in our office building. Plus, the ease of mind knowing our backup is being handled off site. Though Barracuda can offer this too, they require onsite equipment.

We migrated from NetBackup as we wanted to get rid of our Tape library and media used. We also compared with Veeam to replace the Carbonite server backup. We changed our plan, as we needed storage. It is not in our budget. We continued with Carbonite as they are cheaper in cloud.

I have used EMC, Symantec, Barracuda, Bacula (open source), IBM, HP, eFolder, Veam, Acronis, etc. I am always evaluating different products so I can be a trusted advisor to my customers.

  • Tivoli,Netbackup,Cobian,Acronis,Bacula
eVault was fairly easy to learn and had a ton of readily available training when we got stated. Learning Tivoli and Netbackup was a much more daunting task and one that my team never really successfully made it through with our workload. However with eVault we were all able to evaluate the product and get up to speed very quickly. eVault's Support team helped considerably as well. They were able to answer questions that some of our team didn't catch on to during training and were always considerate of the extremely busy nature of our team.

  • Unitrends,Veeam,SafeSystems
We selected eVault because it had the security and offerings we needed as a financial institution. Unitrends came in a close second, but at the time did not have the exact offerings we needed. It has been announced that Unitrends now has these offerings and we will be evaluating them in the future.

I have used HP Data Protector in the past - prefer EVault because I value the cloud solution for its ease of use and reliability. Like the online portal to manipulate backups because it provides mobility. Also like EVault central control software which is very easy to use just like the portal.
