    When it comes to getting your critical files and databases backed up, we understand your business’ need for speed. And we’re excited to announce that Carbonite Server Backup has been tested and proven to be the fastest among leading competitors!

    The Tolly Group tested Carbonite Server Backup against Mozy Pro, CrashPlan Pro and SOS Online Backup using a 54.6GB dataset that included multimedia, office documents, compressed archives, web server data and system files and applications.
