Overall Satisfaction with Carbonite

We use carbonite for our mobile employees that are out of the office often or are working remotely. Because they are not in the office during regular onsite backup hours, we use Carbonite to backup their systems to ensure we do not lose any of the critical data that our employees are storing locally.
  • Manages backups of files in real-time. Any time there is an addition, deletion or modification of files, the software backs it up immediately.
  • Web interface makes it very easy to see current storage, users and settings so all necessary modifications can be done anywhere with an internet connection.
  • Mobile applications are available so users can access their important files from cellular phones if needed.
  • I would like to see a business management application for Android.
  • As an administrator, it may be nice to browse the member files from an application without having to sign in as the user.
  • It would be nice to be able to archive old files on a local computer easily.
  • Overall, the experience with Carbonite has been amazing. It is impossible to quickly put a value on critical data. The fact that I will never lose it, is invaluable.
  • As far as our business goals and objectives, we have not yet had to revise our current course as Carbonite has met all expectations.
  • The only reason this is not our whole and permanent backup solution is because storage and licenses have to be paid for annually and it's not affordable for a company-wide deployment.
Carbonite was a no brainer. We never really considered anyone else because Carbonite is reputable and I pushed hard for this software after using it with different clients in previous positions. I have not used competitor products as of yet but I have not found a reason to pursue this. It is great software for what it promises.
Carbonite is best suited for laptops and remote users that do not have a stable connection for onsite backups. This solution has worked perfectly to ensure I do not lose any data even if my computer is destroyed, lost, or stolen. It is a bit costly (storage-wise) if considered to be used locally or when onsite backups are an option.
