• From Cloud Lounge to Cloud Backup: A BlogHer 2013 Recap

    by Lynnette Nolan | Jul 31, 2013

    Summer is always a busy time for the Carbonite crew! While our Reseller team is down in Orlando for CompTIA’s ChannleCon, the PR team – and Captain Carbonite – just returned from this year’s amazing BlogHer conference in Chicago!

    From tech writers to crafty couponers to multi-tasking moms, we had the opportunity to chat with some amazing conference attendees at our cloud lounge, where they were able to relax, recharge and regroup.

    We loved having the chance to educate an eager audience about backup. And it was so cool for us to hear firsthand how Carbonite had saved people’s business documents, family photos and even manuscripts!

    No one was more excited to hear about data disasters averted than Captain Carbonite.

    But we also heard some sad stories about baby pictures lost in a hard drive crash and power surges that deleted months of edits to files that weren't backed up. To avoid hearing these tragic tales next year, we gave a complimentary year of Carbonite Home backup to each attendee who visited the cloud lounge!

    We can’t wait to follow-up with everyone who dropped a card, or snagged a backup subscription! We’re definitely looking forward to hearing more stories about how the cloud saved the day – and the data.

    There were so many awesome keynotes, breakouts, booths and parties! If you didn't have a chance to make it to the cloud lounge we’d still love to hear from you!

  • Captain Carbonite Drops in from the Cloud and Hits the Streets!

    by Lynnette Nolan | Mar 28, 2013

    Last week, Captain Carbonite dropped in to surprise and remind us that he’s got our back(up)!

    Today, he’s back on the streets of Boston – in Harvard Square, Government Center and Copley Square  – sharing info about Carbonite and Backup Day, which is this Sunday!

    Wondering how one awesome backup superhero can be in three places at once?! It actually makes perfect sense: he’s an advocate for data protection and to be totally secure, data should be kept in more than one place. Even though you may be backing up to disks or external hard drives, a copy should always be stored in the cloud under Captain Carbonite’s watchful eye.

    We hope you join Captain Carbonite in his Backup Day celebrations! If you’re not in Boston, you can still participate in the festivities by following us on Twitter and liking us on Facebook. And if you spot the Captain out and about, we’d love to see your pics – don’t forget to use the hashtag #CaptCarbonite!
