Businesses looking to securely backup their sensitive data to protect against data loss and ransomware attacks typically look for a full suite backup solution that implements cloud infrastructure. Automated backups, remote monitoring and file access, and encryption are key components to evaluate when choosing a suitable backup solution. One such solution on the market is Carbonite Backup which can perform file-level backups from individual computers and servers to the cloud.
While Carbonite Backup offers many features, it is not the sole backup solution on the market. There are other solutions that provide the same benefits of Carbonite as well as additional features for almost half the cost. Syncrify is a comprehensible, easily configurable, and incredibly secure backup solution that protects against ransomware and gives you direct access to your data.
The table below shows how the two backup solutions compare.
|Backup to Carbonites cloud.||Backup to your own cloud giving you total control of your files.|
|Mitigates ransomware by restoring data.||Prevents ransomware from infecting backups as well as giving the option to restore corrupted data.|
|Image backup and Bare metal restore.||Bare metal backup and restore as well as a variety of other similar plugins.|
|No Active Directory integration||Active Directory integration|
|No Integration with 3rd party cloud providers.||Integration with Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS and more.|
|Full file backup only||Uses rsync to allow you to only backup segments of data that was modified.|
While both backup solutions are strong contenders for ensuring that your data is available in the event of a disaster, there are many advantages to choosing Syncrify as an alternative to Carbonite. Syncrify provides many of the same benefits as Carbonite but with one major difference: Syncrify uses private-cloud technology. This means that with Carbonite, your data is being stored on their systems where you do not have file-level access to. With Syncrify, you are the only one who has access to your data. However, Syncrify has the ability to push copies of your backups to many major cloud service providers such as Google, Amazon, and Microsoft, with many more being added.
Syncrify also uses rsync when performing backups. This means that if you modify a file that was already backed up, Syncrify doesn’t need to transfer the entire file, instead, it only transfers the very small segment of data that was modified. This process can drastically reduce backup times as well as reduce network bandwidth.
Most importantly is the cost. Syncrify provides everything for one cost with no hidden fees whereas Carbonite charges based on the type of features that you need. In addition to this, if you decided to stop paying for Carbonites services you lose all access to your backups immediately, whereas with Syncrify, after your initial cost the only recurring cost is for product updates and support.
