Actifio Enterprise

Actifio Enterprise is a great tool to use for data protection and disaster recovery at the enterprise level. It can create one master copy of your data and then replicate that data out via snapshots to local or cloud-based targets. I don't think this product would be a good fit to small to medium sized companies because it is on the expensive side.

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

I am not familiar with their normal Back-Up service as we implemented the Virtual Appliance, so speaking from that point of view, I would say here that if you're looking for an efficient and capable solution to keep your servers backed up and able to spool up quickly in the event of an issue at your physical location, you can't really go wrong with this solution. However, if all you need is your files backed up to a cloud service, you may be better off looking at one of their other options or another service altogether.

Cons

Actifio Enterprise

  • Price could be lower
  • Learning curve is a bit steep
  • Admin Console could be improved
Mark McCully | TrustRadius Reviewer

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

  • Errors on backup jobs could be more clearly explained. As the administrator of the device for my company, I often don't know what caused an error, and can't tell from the error information what happened or caused the error.
  • Updates of the devices should have an automatic option. It takes to much time to do an update to the devices if updates haven't been maintained.
  • Shutdown and restarting the device should be available from the main UI screen to eliminate some time when doing updates or if you're doing some maintenance on the device.

We have grown very attached to the Unitrends appliances and their use for recovery and other file restoration needs as well as data archival, data replication to other appliance and data migration to other servers or long term storage requirements. The appliances work well and the support for them is very good as well.

I have never used such an easy product that is stable and scalable like Unitrends. I have been running backups for MANY years. On premise, tape, disk, cloud, you name it. Unitrends is very flexible, stable and has incredible reporting features. It's nice when management requests a report and it takes you 5 minutes to run it and dump it to PDF. How can you beat that?

They're incredible, attentive, thorough. They make sure my issue is resolved and follow up. I'm usually behind on giving them a reply or an update. They have always gone above and beyond for me, and I'll continue to do the same for them.

The Unitrends employees involved in the installation were very friendly and knowledgeable. A certain degree of hiccups can be expected during any installation but never shook my confidence because of the friendly and knowledgeable team that was assigned to my project.

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery solution is scalable for our use as a medium sized organization. Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery offers a solution in which we can backup multiple different kinds of sources, unlike the Veeam Backup & Replication solution.On top of that, Unitrends releases new updates on an ongoing basis. This helps to fix bugs and improvements on the solution itself.

Once you exceed the capacity of the appliances, you have to forklift a new appliance. This is very expensive.

Return on Investment

Actifio Enterprise

  • Actifio has improved our Disaster Recovery approach by making it easier to get data into the cloud
  • Actifio has allowed our DBA's to manage their own backups and restores
  • Actifio has allowed us to save a lot of disk space by using clones\snapshots to replicate data from production to lower environments.
Mark McCully | TrustRadius Reviewer

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

  • Positive - for what were paying for one SQL server to be a live backup, we were able to shut that down and protect our entire organization using Unitrends. We were able to get rid of the off-site storage costs as well as the manual process of changing out tapes.
  • The reporting and the BCDR tool for creating a disaster recovery plan is great. A lot of times we need to share our DR/BC plan for RFP's or when working with other businesses, and having a web portal to create and edit the plan and then just print to PDF, makes this whole process a breeze.
