Carbonite is a leading provider of online backup and recovery solutions, enabling consumers and small businesses to back up their important data. Unlike traditional backup services that require complicated tapes or other cumbersome methods, Carbonite offers cloud-based software that backs up your entire PC or Mac. Backups can be set to run automatically once a day, every week, or on an ad hoc basis. Your files are encrypted before they leave your computer and then transferred over a SSL-encrypted channel to the Carbonite servers. If you ever need access to one of those old projects or family photos on your computer at home, it's there waiting for you in the cloud! We invite you to visit our website at http://www.carbonite.com .
