    Solarwinds Backup is ideal for individuals looking to keep a consistent backup of devices in their environment. We used it primarily for networking equipment. It is easy to set up, as it is one of the steps available when adding a new device to solarwinds. It is probably not an ideal product to use for long-term (1 month+) backups.

    Unitrends is a very well suited backup solution for MSPs requiring diverse support for client systems, backup methods and storage. Its only 'cons' are that it does require some more technical knowledge of Linux, in particular, to potentially get deployments running smoothly and reporting nicely to other tools; and that deployments can sometimes be a bit rocky requiring a bit of troubleshooting to get things sorted between the appliance and agents, especially going into less than healthy client environments.

    Pros

    N-able

    • Backup Reporting: Email alerts, and a great, easy to read Dashboard with detailed error logs and an easy to search Solarwinds FAQ for a lot of them.
    • Restores: So far I have restored files, full VMs, and VMs to other hardware, and so far it has not only been flawless, but so flexible that I can't imagine going back to any other software.

    Cons

    N-able

    • Restore complete settings: IP settings, the setting of CPU/Memory for VMs, etc. would decrease management during a restore.
    • Individual file backup: more granular settings for backup.
    • Change of device name after setup: at times, computer names change after restore so it would be great to rename the device name.
    • Option to recovery security key.

    • Integration with Kaseya could be better.
    • The standalone backup product need s UI and other features.
    • Remote management of units would be useful.

        Cove is able to cover all aspects of backup in a single package. From the same dashboard I can check servers, workstations, and even Office 365. Cove is a much better solution in terms of overall management for a company such as ours. It also provides integration options with N-Able's RMM and Take Control solutions. This allows us to offer our customers with a full service suite in a single package.

        We compared solutions from Datto, and Veeam and found that Unitrends MSP gave a lower barrier to entry from a cost standpoint. The features that were available out of the box and multi-platform support made the choice a no-brainer when we were looking for options to protect our environment.
