Spare Backup is raising a $1.5 million round to fund its automated remote computer backup business.
The Palm Desert, Calif., company has raised $745,000 already, VentureBeat has learned. Investors include Cery B. Perle, Edward L. Hagan, and Richard Galterio.
The company makes it easy for small businesses to backup their computer data in an automated fashion. That’s a crowded market, with players such as Carbonite.com. Spare Backup charges monthly subscriptions starting at $6.99 a month.
