Bottom Line

Because it is primarily a data protection vendor, Carbonite's data migration capabilities are tailored for companies looking to set up a disaster recover/business continuity site, although the service can also be used for cloud migration. Its strength is that it's not a cloud computing leader, so it is not focused on any one particular platform. 

Indeed, its biggest selling point is that it can transfer workloads from any environment to any environment (physical, virtual or cloud) and that it can failover from one environment to another within just seconds or minutes of downtime. So it's a top tool for disaster recovery as well as cloud.

While some of the leading cloud computing companies may have more features, Carbonite can boast that it will efficiently help you transfer your data from, say, Azure to Google (or vice versa) without any hiccups. It is truly platform agnostic – a big selling point in today's multicloud world.

Company Description

Best known for its consumer backup services, which are used by more than 1.5 million customers, Carbonite also offers enterprise data protection and migration services. Founded in 2005, the company was one of the earliest cloud backup vendors. It has its headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts, and data centers worldwide.

In 2017, Carbonite announced revenue of $239.5 million, a 16 percent year-over-year increase. However, it reported a net loss of $0.14 per share. Its shares are traded on the NASDAQ exchange under the symbol CARB.

Product Description

Building on Carbonite's experience as a backup provider, Carbonite Migrate is essentially a mirroring service for enterprises. Its big advantage is that is can transfer from any physical, virtual or cloud environment to any physical, virtual or cloud environment. That makes it a good option for organizations that are migrating workloads on a continual basis as part of a disaster recovery/business continuity plan. It gives users the option of a completely automated process or manual configuration. It also promises minimal downtime of just minutes or seconds.
