It’s been roughly a year since data protection software maker Carbonite Inc. rolled out a new partner program tailored to the evolving needs of a once consumer-oriented company shifting strategic attention to business buyers—especially midsize ones—while aggressively acquiring vendors like mid-market BDR provider EVault and failover provider DoubleTake Software.
Since then, Boston-based Carbonite has moved control over the partner program from its sales team to its marketing organization, acquired cloud backup vendor Mozy Inc., and rolled out a new disaster recovery-as-a-service solution named Recover.
ChannelPro recently caught up with Norman Guadagno (pictured), Carbonite’s senior vice president of marketing and channel chief, to discuss past and pending changes to the company’s partner program and resources.

In addition to its brand-new cyber protection portfolio, Acronis had aggressive partner recruitment targets, plans for the $147 million it recently got from Goldman Sachs, exit planning, and charitable giving on its mind.
A year after launching an all-new channel program, backup vendor Carbonite is offering less complexity, providing more resources for top partners, and spending more time on plans for competing with all-in-one managed service software makers like Datto and Kaseya.
Datto, NinjaRMM, The 20, Connect Booster, SOCSoter, and Nexogy share details on what's happening now and what's coming up next for channel pros.
Speaking with ChannelPro-SMB last week, Datto’s Austin McChord discusses the networking solution his company launched last month and explains why no one should think that product signals a step away from its core focus on BDR.
Read on for details about the forthcoming integration between Datto’s networking products and PSA platform, the future of Datto’s web-based management console, and the company’s continued dedication to open APIs.
