Backup Appliance Features & Benefits
Bare Metal Backup and Restore
Carbonite appliances will create complete server backup images, both locally and in the cloud. Other notable features will include:
Hot Backup of Live Production Databases Powered by Amanda
Every Carbonite appliance is expected to include Carbonite's Amanda Enterprise Backup. This time-tested database backup system is based on the open-source Amanda platform with an estimated installed base of more than one million computers.
Virtual Machine Failover
When a server dies, a small business needs to get it back up and running quickly even though it can take days to get a server repaired or replaced. With the Carbonite appliance, businesses will be able to restore a backup to a virtual machine, allowing them to stay up and running with minimum down-time.
