Carbonite focuses on small and medium businesses, and allows them backup on the cloud files from computers, smartphones, and cameras. The platform, once enabled, continuously backups files onto the cloud. Carbonite makes money by charging a flat yearly fee for unlimited usage. Carbonite's technology relies on businesses accepting to have their files hosted on Carbonite's servers.[1]

Trends & Forces

Cloud based service

Carbonite's service fundamentally relies on syncing business data onto the cloud. In this case, the cloud refers to a decentralized servers which are not directly controlled by business whose files are being backedup. It is not clear of the wider business community will be willing to have their files stored on someone else's servers. This is because the businesses can not completely control their own files which likely contain confidential information. In addition, some industries, like the financial industry, are highly regulated and are often unable to store files in such a manner. Carbonite's future is dependent on the continued acceptance of cloud computing. [4]
