Carbonite Inc., a provider of cloud and hybrid business continuity solutions, has introduced its latest release of Carbonite Server Backup, offering hybrid backup for Microsoft Exchange Online in Office 365 and enabling SMBs to protect critical business data created and hosted in the cloud.
Carbonite Server Backup enables businesses to protect against data loss with a hybrid functionality that backs up data to the cloud, locally to a physical piece of hardware or networked drive, or to both. In addition to Office 365, Carbonite Server Backup supports servers (physical and virtual), databases, live applications, NAS drives, Hyper-V, and external hard drives.
The newest release of Carbonite Server Backup is available for download. Additional functionalities include:
- Mailbox-level Backup and Restore – Carbonite Server Backup provides backup and recovery of individual Exchange mailboxes. Rather than restoring an entire Exchange database to recover corrupted or deleted individual user data, IT administrators can search for and restore specific Exchange mailboxes both locally and in Office 365.
- Customization – Administrators can apply the customization of Carbonite Server Backup – network utilization, storage capacity, retention periods, cloud and local backup targets, and more – to Office 365.
- Encryption – Secure AES 128-bit Encryption transmitted through a Secure Socket Layer (SSL). Users have the ability to create a 256-bit private key encryption.
“As growing numbers of SMBs adopt cloud-based applications for business productivity, they require simple yet powerful solutions that protect against user error, corrupted data, and unforeseen downtime. The support for Office 365 within Carbonite Server Backup further underscores our commitment to keeping businesses in business,” says Brad Meiseles, Carbonite senior vice president of product and engineering.
