Cloud Storage: Three Acquisitions In One Week Signals Consolidation On The Way
Carbonite | Oct 19, 2012
For Carbonite, the acquisition of Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Zmanda provides the opportunity to expand into the business of providing cloud storage for servers, said David Friend, chairman and CEO of Boston-based Carbonite. Carbonite started out as a provider of consumer-focused cloud storage, and this year, it has moved to expand its SMB business with its first solid channel program. However, Friend said, Carbonite has had to turn away customers and solution providers that asked about cloud backups for servers.
