Boston and Venlo, Netherlands (PRWEB) February 19, 2008
Carbonite, Inc., and its exclusive publisher in the Netherlands, Globell, B.V., a subsidiary of net AG (FSE: NET), today announced the commercial release of the Dutch version of Carbonite Online PCBackup™ for the Netherlands and Belgium markets. The fully-localized version of Carbonite can now be purchased at http://www.carbonite-backup.nl.
Carbonite Online PCBackup™ is the leading consumer backup service in the United States and Canada. The Dutch version is now available for purchase at €49.95 (including VAT) for a one-year subscription and €89.95 for a two-year subscription. An unlimited 15-day free trial of the Dutch version, with no credit card required, is also available at http://www.carbonite-backup.nl.
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 users' PCs or their Internet browsing. Data is encrypted and compressed before leaving the local computer and is transmitted to Carbonite's secure data center using HTTPS (SSL) for total privacy.
"We are delighted to be partnering with Globell to bring a Dutch version of Carbonite to market," said Floyd Bradley, Carbonite's EVP International. "Holland is an important territory for Carbonite. The combination of the new Dutch version, our recently-launched French version (downloadable from http://www.carbonite.fr) and our original English product (available at http://www.carbonite.com) now enables us to fully meet the needs of the Belgian market as well. Along with Globell's German version of Carbonite (http://www.carbonite-backup.de), we now cover the complete Benelux region including Luxembourg."

This clever, easy-to-use and extremely affordable unlimited online backup service, now available in all languages of the Benelux region, is a major step toward penetration of the central European market. Interest in online backup services is growing stronger month by month, and Carbonite is now perfectly positioned for success in this market."
