Carbonite Reaches 300 Billion Backed-Up Files


    Can we imagine for a second the sheer magnitude of the number 300,000,000,000? If we do this in terms of what’s tangible, we’d be looking at roughly 73x the population of the top 10 most populated countries on earth. If we just considered China even, that would mean every single one of China’s over 1.34 billion citizens would have 233 files backed-up on their computer.

    Now, if you’re more of the intangible/imagination type, then let’s put it this way; According to legend, Thor’s hammer is made of neutron-star matter, which means it weighs approximately as much as a herd of 300-billion elephants. Just saying, 300 billion is a huge number and to fathom this many files backed-up, indefinitely – especially for a company that’s only eight-years-old? It’s pretty miraculous.

    We use Carbonite at TechVert, and for bloggers, the peace of mind is more than worth the money we pay per year. Think about it – you’ll pay thousands of dollars a year for something like a home insurance policy, but when that sucker burns down, all of your valuables are gone. G.O.N.E. – Gone. The insurance company can give you all the money in the world, but it won’t replace your things. In our opinion, Carbonite is better than an insurance policy because here, if something happens, you get everything back. Forever.

    So if you haven’t already considered a backup solution – consider this your friendly public service announcement from the lovely folks at TechVert. Carbonite works, well. It protects your pictures, documents, and other important files by backing them up automatically to the cloud. You can access your files from any computer, smartphone, or tablet, and from anywhere you can connect to the Internet. If you’re uber-uptight about security – Carbonite encrypts your files before they leave your computer, and safely stores them at their state-of-the-art data center. Unlimited backup space for one computer starts at $59/year (that’s $0.16 cents a day for the penny-pushers). If you run a small business, Carbonite has plans that will cover backup storage for all of your computers, servers, and external hard drives for a low, flat, annual fee.
