Free Carbonite Trial for Java Users

Boston-based online computer backup provider Carbonite announced an agreement yesterday with Sun Microsystems that could broaden the startup’s user base. Computer users who download Sun’s Java runtime environment for the first time, or who upgrade to the newest version of Java, will be offered a 30-day free trial of the Carbonite service. “This program will increase awareness of the importance of data backup among the millions of loyal Java users,” Carbonite president and COO Keith Cooper said in a statement.
