Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 31, 2008
Carbonite, Inc., today announced the commercial launch of the Portuguese version of Carbonite Online PCBackup™ for Portugal and Brazil. The fully-localized Portuguese version of Carbonite can now be downloaded at http://www.carbonite.com/pt.
Carbonite Online PCBackup™ is the leading consumer backup service in the United States and Canada. The Portuguese version is now available for purchase at 49 € / R$ 130 (including VAT/ICMS) for a one-year subscription and 89 € /R$ 230 for a two-year subscription. An unlimited 15-day free trial of the Portuguese version, with no credit card required, is also available at http://www.carbonite.com/pt.
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.
“After having launched the German, French, Italian and Dutch localizations of Online PCBackup™, the Portuguese version is another important step to continue Carbonite’s growth in the European market,” said Floyd Bradley, Carbonite's EVP International. “The Portuguese localization also is a major step toward our entry into the Brazilian market. This presents a big opportunity for Carbonite, since Brazil has the highest number of broadband subscribers of any country in South America.”
Carbonite launched its Online PCBackup™ service in May 2006. Carbonite’s industry-first offer of unlimited backup space for a flat low price revolutionized the market for consumer and small business backup services. So far the company has backed up over 3 billion files, has restored more than 200 million lost files for its customers and has a large data center where capacity is measured in petabytes. There are Carbonite users in over 110 countries.
Founded in 2005, Carbonite believes that computer users should not have to think about backup. The company's mission is to provide an affordable, reliable, secure and easy-to-use solution for the mainstream computer user. Carbonite is available to consumers and small business through numerous channels, including its corporate website, major US retailers and international distributors.
