Carbonite, Acer Partner

BOSTON -- Carbonite, Inc., the leading provider of online backup to consumers and small businesses, today announced a partnership with Acer Inc. to provide Carbonites award-winning online backup service to Acer’s consumer customers on select PCs shipping to the U.S. and Canada. As part of the partnership, Acer Travelmate and Aspire branded computers ship with a free trial of Carbonite Online Backup™ pre-loaded.

“This is an ideal partnership that brings true value to Acer consumers,” said Keith Cooper, president and COO of Carbonite. “Everyone will eventually experience the terrible consequences of losing family photos, personal documents, work files and their favorite music. The problem is that most people don’t think about backing up those precious files until after they have been lost forever. By including the online backup on the computers when they are purchased, consumers can easily get protection before that inevitable loss impacts their lives.”
