OpenText buys Carbonite

Looks like OpenText wants to extend its portfolio:

Anyone here a Carbonite customer?

Not here! OpenText is a name I haven’t heard in awhile, though. I used to work at a place that used their eDOCS document management solution. It was very… uhh, yea.

So now OpenText, never heard of, owns Carbonite which owns Webroot :scream_cat:

Yup, Carbonite bought Webroot not too long ago. They also bought out one of their competitors in the backup space, Mozy.

We just got dragged through the Mozy to Carbonite transition (which was terrible on many levels). Not happy about this purchase, either.

That’s too bad @jloudon - these mergers do end up being a lot of work for the customers!
