Carbonite vs Datto in our news:
2019 - OpenText buys online backup firm Carbonite for $1.42B
Carbonite has agreed to a $1.42 billion purchase by OpenText, an enterprise information management giant. During the last couple of years Carbonite moved away from a traditional data backup business to a more proactive, defensive security company. In February, Carbonite bought endpoint security company Webroot for $618.5 million in an all-cash deal, as the company pushed to protect against emerging threats like ransomware. Only a year earlier, Carbonite bought Mozy for $145 million, a cloud backup service.
2014 - Datto buys cloud backup service Backupify
Datto is buying Backupify so it can offer a full range of data recovery services, regardless of where that data sits. Both companies deal with data backup and recovery, but Backupify’s strength is protecting SaaS objects — data in Google Docs or Salesforce.com — while Datto focuses on protecting Windows and Linux applications running either on premises on physical servers or on local or private clouds. Backupify had raised just under $20 million from investors including Avalon Ventures, General Catalyst Partners, First Round Capital, Lowercase Capital, Symantec and others. Datto has raised $25 million in one round led by shared investor General Catalyst — it was former VMware CTO Steve Herrod’s first funding deal after he joined that VC firm.
