Anyone who's had to drive across a busy tourist town can appreciate the appeal of a centralized management solution. "In the summer, in a resort community, it can be very difficult to get from one point to another quickly," says Adam Darack, IT manager for the municipality of Edgartown, Mass.
"With Carbonite, I can just log in and within a few minutes, I know what's happening with our backup. That keeps us on track, without having me stuck in traffic for half the day."
Darack manages a number of city offices and departments, from the town hall to the harbor master, so having an easy way to manage them all without extensive in-person visits is a boon to his productivity. Also, Carbonite keeps Edgartown's data secure and accessible.
“I’m always looking ways to do things smarter, better, and with increased efficiency,” says Darack. “And in this economy, affordability is important. Carbonite is spot on for all of that. It’s exactly what we need.”
From home to business
Before switching to Carbonite, Darack was using a few different backup products, but wasn't finding any of them to have the features he wanted. One had a good price, but a challenging user interface, while another made users go through numerous steps to recover a file.
Since Darack used Carbonite at home and loved it, he decided to give Carbonite's business solution a try. He says, "The home product was so strong, that I had a feeling the professional product would be great as well. Turns out, I was right."
