About Carbonite

Carbonite offers all the tools necessary for protecting data from the most common forms of data loss, including ransomware, accidental deletions, hardware failures and natural disasters. From  automated computer backup to comprehensive protection for physical and virtual server environments, Carbonite ensures the accessibility and resiliency of data for any system.

What is Carbonite?

Carbonite® began in 2005 as the answer to the question: "Why can't there be an easy and affordable way to back up files online?" Founded as a company serving primarily homes and small business users, Carbonite now protects data for more than 1.5 million customers and organizations.

In early 2016, Carbonite acquired EVault, formerly a division of Seagate Technology. This addition expanded Carbonite's data protection portfolio to include hybrid backup and disaster recovery services for larger businesses.

One year later, Carbonite expanded into enterprise-grade solutions with the acquisition of Double-Take Software, adding its assortment of high availability and data migration services, and cementing Carbonite's place as a one-stop shop for data protection needs of every kind.
