Carbonite Availability

Note: Carbonite has announced a price increase effective March 7, 2019, so get in your orders before then!

Carbonite Availability Powered by DoubleTake is our recommended solution for replicating PSQL databases running on Windows Server 2008 R2 or newer (up to Windows Server 2016 for right now).  Older operating systems are also supported through older product versions, if needed.  We have fully vetted this environment and have successfully configured it for numerous clients, providing both disaster recovery and fault tolerance for these users, as well as enabling a snapshot backup capability for large databases that is otherwise very difficult to achieve. (Our largest database client is nearing 2TB of replicated data!)

Carbonite Availability Powered by DoubleTake is licensed by SOURCE (protected) server, so the target server does not need to have a license applied (like the older Double-Take Availability did).  Carbonite has also simplified the pricing, with only two different pricing levels:Virtual Servers or Physical Servers.

Each license comes with one year of 24x7 Support and Maintenance directly from Carbonite, as well as one hour of setup assistance from Goldstar Software to make sure that the solution is properly installed to protect your database environment.  You can purchase an additional 2 years of maintenance (3 years total) with your initial purchase at a discount, or you can wait and renew your maintenance annually after the first year.  (If you are expecting to keep using it for a long time, then we definitely recommend the three-year plan, unless your organization needs to amortize subscriptions on an annual basis.)

As the product licensing can vary a bit depending on your exact implementation, we do NOT recommend that you order from these pages without talking to us first!  Please give us a call at 708-647-7665 or send an Email to Sales@goldstarsoftware.com and we will help you figure out the right solution for your specific needs. We can step through the various protection options, help design the right solution for your needs, and even offer advise on how best to accomplish your data replication and backup goals. Once you have that part out of the way, you can use this page to complete your purchase.

Important Note: Unlike our Actian orders which typically fulfill the same day, even for non-stock items, Carbonite can be relatively slow in fulfilling orders, with some items taking 2-3 business days (or more) for fulfillment.  If you need a rush order, please let us know in the comments field, and we will press them to get the license key ASAP.  However, it is very rare that we can get the license key from them the same day you order, so please be patient and plan ahead, if possible.
