Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

We use Unitrends to back up all of our servers, databases and important desktops critical to our operation. We do a combination of full and differential backups throughout the week, and monthly and annual backups as well to keep our risk low. Restores have been easy when necessary. Unitrends has matured well since I first encountered them 15 years ago.
  • Easy to configure.
  • Support is good to work with.
  • Status reports let me know when things are not going well.
  • Would love to see a report that tells me per night how long each job is taking.
  • Support site should be able to pre-populate the device ID into a list of values.
  • Some intelligence on how we can shrink our backup window with data ever growing.
  • Been able to save the business when needed.
  • Saved time when developers made incorrect changes to production websites or databases.

Would you buy Unitrends again?


Didn't really look at others. Came recommended and purchased what we saw and needed at the time.
Having used the competition, I have seen how a lot of other backup solutions work and what their strengths are. Unitrends works well in our current environment with VMware and Netapp. Using the Unitrends OVA appliance coupled with a synology storage for the backups to live on and a replication Unitrends OVA ,and synology appliance in another of our sites allows for an offsite backup. Much better than shipping off tapes to somewhere only to find out the tape was stored incorrectly and can't be used to recover from.
