Carbonite Arms Resellers with Database Backup for Small Businesses

The company adds database backup to help VARs deliver a more comprehensive cloud backup solution. By Admin

Carbonite Inc., a provider of cloud backup solutions for consumers and small businesses, has made its Database Backup available for its online backup reseller partners to offer to their small business clients. With the Carbonite Database Backup solution, resellers can deliver a comprehensive cloud backup solution to help ensure that their clients' backup is protected offsite.

Databases contain information that is crucial to a business - from client data and financial records to email and payroll. Yet research from a recent Carbonite study* shows:

  • Database Data is at Risk: 25 percent of small businesses with at least one database (Exchange server or SQL Server) have lost or accidentally deleted data from it.
  • Database Backup is a Must: Small businesses indicated that the ability to back up SQL databases (79 percent) and Microsoft Exchange (66 percent) ranks high in importance when selecting a backup solution.

Resellers can now sell Database Backup as an add-on to Carbonite's BusinessPremier cloud backup solution for small businesses. Carbonite Database Backup will back up a range of databases, virtual machines, and applications, including Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange Server, Sharepoint, Hyper-V, Oracle, and MySQL, and provides protection for an unlimited number of databases and live applications.

What Database Backup Means to Resellers and Their Clients On Tuesday, April 30 at 12:00pm ET (9:00am PT), the Carbonite reseller team will host a webinar to discuss the importance of database backup for small business clients and how offering cloud backup to protect their databases can build a reseller's business.
