Did Unitrends live up to sales and marketing promises?

Would you buy Unitrends again?


I think Unitrends leaves a lot to be desired from a user interface. Their GUI is not very intuitive and does not follow Windows File Structure very well. It is hard to Navigate to where you want to go. When I attempt to adjust the Retention or the Backup Schedule I have to Google how to do it or call into support.
Unitrends does a good job backing up servers from both a full image backup to specific files or folders. I don't think it works well with MS SQL Server backups out of the box. I experience issues with it correctly backing up the log files.

Using Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

1 - We use Unitrends to back up our Physical servers and then backup to Unitrends Cloud. It allows us to backup our SQL databases and all of our DNS, Active Directory, Terminal Services and File Servers. It makes things easy for us to not worry about multiple backup servers to move things off site.
