DNA had used a few date backup vendors. Seagate (Formally EVault) was a great product and was very granular but the price was very expensive and way more than what we needed. Infrascale was just too basic and was not complex enough and couldn't manage our SQL databases. Iron managed our old tape backup workflow, this took a lot of man-hours to maintain and was a way too easy to allow for human errors in the process.
Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery appliance and cloud backups are great for any situations where you require an easy to manage workflow for local and remote storage backups to allow your company to have a business continuity plan and disaster recovery plan that is dependable and easy to test. The Hybrid appliance and cloud approach is more affordable than a 100% cloud-based solution.

You will need a dedicated high-speed data line to keep your cloud backups current.
