Carbonite, Inc. today announced the appointment of Questar Srl as its Italian re-publisher of Carbonite Online PCBackup™.

Carbonite, Inc. today announced the appointment of Questar Srl as its Italian re-publisher of Carbonite Online PCBackup™. The English-language version is available for purchase in Italy from Questar at €49.00 (including VAT) for a one-year subscription and €89 for a two-year subscription at http://www.questar.it. An Italian version will be available in late October 2007.

Carbonite Online PCBackup™ is the leading consumer backup service in the United States and Canada. Carbonite installs with just a few clicks and runs quietly in the background, continuously backing up all data files. It is completely automatic – once installed, Carbonite finds all new and changed files and continues to back them up whenever the PC is connected to the Internet. Storage capacity is unlimited – users never outgrow their Carbonite subscription no matter how much data they have. Carbonite never interferes with the speed of the user’s PC or Internet browsing. Data is encrypted before leaving the local computer and is transmitted to Carbonite’s secure data center using HTTPS (SSL) for total privacy.

Floyd Bradley, Carbonite’s EVP International, said, “After launching Carbonite in German and French, we are delighted to be now adding Italy to our distribution network by partnering with Questar. We look forward to working with Questar to increase Carbonite’s market presence on the European Continent.”

David Orban, CEO of Questar, added, “With great features, ease of use and affordable pricing, Carbonite’s Online PCBackup™ will significantly enhance our product and service offerings for SMEs, SOHO customers and consumers. This novel backup solution should be very successful in Italy, particularly after we introduce an Italian version.”
