Product: Carbonite Online Backup



About Carbonite

Carbonite is a company that specializes in online backup. It has its headquarters in Boston, MA as well as data centres in Boston and Somerville, MA. It was founded in 2005 by David Friend and Jeff Flowers, out of pure necessity, after both their families had lost valuable data from their PCs. Friend's daughter had lost her term paper for college when her computer crashed and Flowers' wife's computer was stolen along with two years of baby photos and financial records. They realised that the only way forward was online backup. Not any online backup though. It had to be automatic, non-invasive, simple to use as well as cheap. So Carbonite came into being. It was such a success that it has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and New York Times, amongst others. It has customers in 100 countries and more than three-quarters of their customers are extremely satisfied with the product, according to satisfaction surveys.

Friend and Flowers had three joint ventures prior to Carbonite: Pilot Software; FaxNet Corporation and Sonexis Incorporated. Some of the top capital firms that back Carbonite are Common Angels, 3i Investments, Menlo Ventures, Performance Equity Management and Crosslink Capital.

Today Carbonite has 150 employees. It has backed up over 100 billion files and recovered over 7 billion files. Some most impressive statistics indeed!

The Product

Access to files can be from any computer or smartphone with a free app. It comes in two versions. Home & Home Office is for individuals and families or small businesses with one to two people.
