Use Cases and Deployment Scope


We are using the Carbonite Server Backup to manage the customers' backup environment. It won't give the report module as expected, but apart from that we have enough options to explore the backup and restore technologies.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We are using Carbonite server backup as or current backup solution for 6 servers. We are also using the desktop version for key players within the organization. The intention of bringing the products in is to have a safety net in a place other than Microsoft's built-in shadow copy system.

We use Carbonite Server Backup across the whole organization. We are using it to backup the VM, SQL, Oracle DB and Exchange server Backup. This has solved the problem of hardware utilization, as we store data in their cloud vault.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We currently use Carbonite Evault as our backup and disaster recovery system. It is being used as an organization-wide system. It addresses the need to have quick restores for those files that no one knows how they disappeared, while also addressing the need to have your data stored elsewhere in the event of an emergency.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use it for our whole organization backing up just under 100GB of file, system state and database types data. Carbonite is installed on two older Microsoft based servers which serve domain and file system roles as well as a SQL Server. It is our industry standard to have disaster recovery methods in place which include file level to complete system recovery. We backup month end snapshots up to 10 years as well as a rolling 30 days.

We use Evault to backup our critical computer systems by taking nightly, weekly and monthly backups which are stored on disk, as well as replicating those same backups to an offsite datacenter for disaster recovery if needed.

[I] Have used EVault for 8+ years to backup multiple locations to local backup and central remote site for disaster recovery purposes. Setup has been simple and easy. Web Central Control has drastically reduced time and simplified reviewing backup completion. The entire product is logical and intuitive.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We were using tape backup, and people forgot to change out the tapes on a regular basis. So looking for a solution Carbonite was perfect, for we could back it up to our local NAS and then have it backup to the cloud via automation. We receive emails each step of the way, so we always know what is going on. If something goes wrong we get a email and then we can fix it quickly and continue on.

I use Carbonite Server Backup across our entire organization. I needed backup of files that I could easily verify and let work through the night. I wanted to use a product that was easy to manage because my time is very limited but I know from experience that it is very important to everyone in our operation that we have a solid backup plan.

carbonite is being used across the whole organization, it is backing up servers and databases. It solved our problem we had a few years ago when it was time to buy a new tape backup system and all the components needed to run the system. We find it easier and cheaper to have switched to carbonite. It also addresses our concerns on security and offsite access if something ever went wrong.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our company uses Carbonite Server Backup for all of our servers. This includes email, mobile, operating systems, and software. We have never had to obtain copies of our backups, of which, I am very grateful. Whenever our cloud backup is getting close to full. I receive an email alert to either purchase more space or cleanup our current backups. I use these alerts to keep our system backing up at optimal performance. Whenever I need technical support Carbonite is just a phone call away and any updates or problems are handled with relative ease and timeliness.

Before Carbonite, we had servers that used the old tape backup system. Each night we would have to make sure someone changed out the tapes and took them home, so as not to have them destroyed in either a fire or disaster. Carbonite Backup to the cloud has given me peace of mind knowing we are protected. I highly recommend anyone that is thinking about purchasing backup servers to give Carbonite a call first.

We are a new (May 2015) retail flooring business. We had, and still have, many issues to solve and manage in our business. I have had them for backup on my system at home with no problems. Turning over the backup task to them took a task off my back. I still have plenty!!

We use eVault in two ways. The first way is to back up all of our company's internal data to our off-site location. The second way is by reselling eVault products and solutions to our customers.
It addresses the business problems of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery for us and most of our customers.

As an IT services provider SunGard setup and supported eVault for multiple customers. It was setup and supported by my group, Availability Service, during my last year with SunGard. The product allowed us to provide an on-site and off-site backup solution for our customers which covered the most important applications (SQL / Exchange) and system types (Windows / Linux).

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

EVault is being used for backing up our ERP system data, in addition to our tape backup process. It is our primary disaster recovery method, through our contract with Sungard. Backups are written to a local server at our site, then replicated to the EVault site. Most of the individual file restores that I need to do are done using the EVault backups, which saves me a lot of time loading/unloading backup tapes.

It's used across a significant part of the business - offers a cloud backup solution for company servers and data. It offers a fast, efficient way of safeguarding data and also offers a disaster recovery process. It works well with virtualized server recovery and also file level security. Data is migrated and replicated from localized vaults in data centers to satellite vaults offering cloud storage.

About 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.
