"Carbonite just easily surpassed every other service provider in all three categories," he said.

Although not the first provider to offer online backup services, Carbonite does hold the distinct advantage of being the first to offer unlimited storage for a flat fee. Prior to Carbonite's entry into the online backup industry in 2006, backup service providers were charging by the gigabyte. Carbonite's introduction of unlimited backup space not only made the service more affordable but also encouraged more computer users to adopt better data loss prevention methods.

Carbonite Backup has also released in March 2009 its MAC version for OS 10.4 or 10.5.

"The service is reliable, easy to use, and automatically backs up your computer for less than $5 a month.
