Definition: Carbonite


A cloud storage provider located in Boston, Massachusetts. Founded in 2006, Carbonite automatically backs up files and folders selected by the customer. A Carbonite program works in the background and provides incremental backup, wherein some number of previous copies of a file are maintained for a period of time.

In 2018, Carbonite acquired Mozy, a cloud storage service that was part of Dell Technologies, and Mozy customers migrated to Carbonite. See incremental backup and cloud storage.
