We all know that online backup can save your important data when you think it's lost forever, but a simple cloud solution can offer much more to small businesses than data protection. What else can online backup save? Well, take a look at our list and try to imagine the peace of mind that comes with online backup:
Time: At the end of a long day, do you really want to stay at the office to run a backup of all the computers in your office? Probably not. Time you and your employees are spending on manually backing up your files is time away from your core business. An automatic online backup solution like Carbonite continually backs up your data whenever your computers are connected to the internet. At the end of the day, you can rest easy knowing that your backups are up-to-date.
Money: Small businesses don't have unlimited IT budgets. It's important to use technologies that don't require bringing in an expensive IT consultant. Online backup is simple to use and extremely effective. Carbonite Business starts at just $229/year, and is far more affordable than the thousands of dollars you'll spend on a data recovery service when your hard drive crashes.
Memories: Confession time: A lot of us keep personal files on our work computers. Whether it's photos of our child's graduation or a video of our pet, these files are important to us, and often times can't be replaced. Online backup ensures your priceless memories are safe and easily accessible. Plus, could you ever forgive yourself if you lost the photos of last year's holiday party? Yeah, that one?
Gas: Have you ever gotten home and realized you need a file that's on a computer in the office? When you back up to the cloud, your files are always just a click away so there's no need to get back in the car and head to the office. With Carbonite's Anytime Anywhere Access, you can access all the files in your backup from nearly any internet-connected device, including computers, smartphones and tablets. Administrators can even access their dashboard from any browser to make sure all devices are backed up, add and delete users or purchase more storage from anywhere.
Sanity: The moment when you realize your hard drive has crashed or you've accidentally deleted an important file is a terrible feeling. Rather than going through the five stages of grief - first trying to convince yourself that one more second of holding down that button will make your computer come to life, then screaming at the top of your lungs - users of online backup can rest easy knowing they can restore their lost files. So while someone who doesn't back up is on the floor of their office trying to piece together their data from external hard drives, emails and USB drives, a Carbonite user can go get a coffee while their files are restored to their computer automatically.
If you think your time, memories and sanity are worth $229/year, and dream of a world where you have the peace of mind knowing your business data is well-protected, start a free 30-day trial at Carbonite.com or give the Carbonite business team a call at 1-855-CARB-BIZ.
