Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends

We backup our entire organization with Unitrends. Business problems addressed are:

  • Backup and recovery of critical data
  • Availability of data in the event of loss caused by file corruption, any type of malicious activity or man-made or natural disaster
  • Recovery of historical data for business as well as legal reasons.
  • Backs up the data without glitches. this is what it's primary purpose is.
  • Gives good notifications. You want to know whether or not your backup is successful.
  • All agents are included for no extra charge. Makes for ease of use and no hidden costs
  • User interface takes some getting used to. Although I've heard they've completely revamped it. I haven't been able to upgrade to the new interface yet so I can't comment on it.
  • The old GFS scheme is out the window unless you want to keep track of it manually.
  • Ease of recovery
  • Speed of recovery
  • Reliability of data
The competitors were both tape backup but were awkward to use and didn't always work. Unitrends is disk based and is very easy to use and reliable. I have confidence in it.

Unitrends works well in my environment. I back up up from a different location than the data over a 1Gbps WAN link. It provides capability to back up VMs but I prefer to let my storage plug-ins do that so I save space on the backup device. It backs up my CIFS share on my NAS well.
