In August, I talked about 9 Tools Small Business Owners Love and Carbonite was on this list.
Carbonite is an online backup service, which can be used both in Windows on PCs and on Macs. It backs up documents, e-mails, music, photos, and settings. You can schedule the day and time that you want Carbonite to back up your items and it will do the rest. Or you can have Carbonite backup in the background of your computer all the time, so you never lose a change you’ve just made. It’s as simple as that.
Carbonite offers three different paid plans for your convenience, Personal, Pro and Server, but there is no limit on your backup storage space on any of the plans. Each of these plans have 3 options inside them, Basic, Plus and Prime. Here’s how the plans differ:
- Personal: You need this if you have individual computers. This plan is ideal for home-based professionals looking to protect individual computers. This plan starts at $59.99 per year.
- Pro: You need this if you want to backup unlimited workstations. This plan will protect unlimited computers and supports HIPAA compliance, for those in the healthcare industry. This plan starts at $269.99 per year.
- Server: Companies will benefit from this if they are looking for local & cloud backup for files, databases and live applications. This plan starts at $799.99 per year.
It is always better to be safe than sorry. We have all had computers give us trouble. How devastating would it be if you lost everything on your computer? It’s not a matter of if your computer will crash, it’s only a matter of when. Carbonite gives you that safe peace of mind to know when your computer does decide to quit on you; you have not lost anything.
