Private-label a business disaster recovery solution

Carbonite gives you everything you need to private-label an enterprise-grade backup and recovery service for your clients.

Core components

Carbonite data protection solutions use three key technology components:

Agents

Lightweight agents are installed on each protected server. Once installed, agents track block-level changes and only send changed data to vaults. Agents are managed through a portal interface.

Portal

Access our management portal through a web browser or install it on a networked PC. Monitor backup health, initiate restores and control agents from a centralized location.

Director

Director is an application that manages the storage infrastructure and monitors backups. It is a server application installed on a white-box Windows server, connected to a RAID disk that authenticates and then accepts data from the agent. Flexible deployment options allow you to implement it where you need it.

Advanced technology at every step

Carbonite uses proprietary, patented technology to streamline the backup process, minimize bandwidth interference, reduce backup windows and provide maximum security at every step. Advanced technologies include:

  • Quick file scan
  • DeltaPro change identification
  • Image backup
  • Bare metal restore (BMR)
  • Centralized dashboard
  • Mixed hypervisor support
  • 256-bit encryption
