Carbonite Endpoint

Carbonite Endpoint 360 is a great solution for any organization with compliance needs. Office 365 defaults to a 30 day backup of all data. Carbonite Endpoint 360 extends this well beyond 30 days and provides an all-inclusive source for retention for data in Office 365. Any small to medium business would greatly benefit from this solution as they can design their entire infrastructure in Office 365 and ensure it's all backed up.

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.

Pros

Carbonite Endpoint

  • It is excellent at automating your backups. You don't need to manually do it, just set it up once and let it run in the background.
  • It's pretty simple to set up and use. It will automatically suggest the best options that work for most people and you can be up and running pretty quickly.
  • It's safe and reliable. We have been using it for a couple of years now and had no major issues.
  • Their phone support is excellent.
  • It's also really easy to maintain your backed up data to reduce redundancy.

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

  • Fully automated and customizable dashboards can run with less administrative attention
  • Will be able to run on virtual machines or can be deployed it as a virtual machine within the MS Azure or AWS.
  • AI-based ransomware detection helps to understand data characteristics and alerts for ransomware attacks.

Cons

Carbonite Endpoint

  • To be honest not so impressed with the amount of time it has taken to get data backed up to the cloud.
  • I have not had to do a restore at this time so I cannot comment on the restore process.
  • I was not aware at time of procurement that the upload process would take so long since we were not procuring their hardware. Sales rep mad it seem like upload would only take a day or two and we are now starting week 7 hoping to be done by week 8 for 1.5 TBs of data.

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.

I found their alerting to be very poor. I missed several days of backups without knowledge of this, until I signed into the portal. I would get daily emails reporting backups were in progress or done, but nothing indicating that a backup had been stuck or paused for 3 days. For this reason alone, I did not renew.

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?

Does what it needs to do quietly and efficiently in the background without interrupting the workflow. It offers instant automated back-ups without troubling the end user. As it is such an automated system, once it is up and running, there is little or no support needed from the service provider. From what I understand the support from Carbonite during the setup and implementation was absolutely fine.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Carbonite Endpoint

We have also used Mozy Pro and Dropbox. They are all pretty similar in functionality/features of backing up data (not system state or databases as I don't think any of the 3 are well suited for that). To me, it comes down to personal preference and choosing a product that is universal for multiple users, for ease of management.

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

Carbonite Endpoint

  • Data backup is critical to us. Carbonite ensures that we don't lose anything important.
  • It is also good protection against accidental deletions or if someone makes mistakes.
  • Cloud back up also means we don't have to worry about maintaining back up equipment or redundancy in storage.

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.
