Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

For a purely virtualized environment, I love it. I recommend using it with fast storage if you want to benefit from the Instant Recovery feature. If you have slow storage like a USB disk drive - Instant Recovery may not be fun for you.

Cons

  • Interface is slow to respond.
  • Interface is currently in transition, and you need to use the new and old interfaces to do certain tasks.

It is an intuitive platform but they just updated it and I am not familiar yet with the new platform so it may be a 10 when I get into it

Initial deployment services were terrific, and the couple of times I required support I received timely support from very knowledgeable support staff. These people are some of the best support staff I have encountered in my 20 year IT career.

While looking for a new backup solution, we also evaluated the Barracuda Backup appliance. While this solution met many of our needs, one of our requirements was the ability to archive to tape, which Barracuda didn't provide.
