Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

Unitrends has given us the comfort of knowing our entire company's data is backed up, and when anything happens we have quick access to it for a full recovery. We have several drives for each level of our company and Unitrends allows us to back these up just as they are in our current environment.
  • We lost power and thus lost one of our drives. This drive was backed up to our Unitrends appliance, and thus allowed for quick recovery.
  • At one point several files got corrupt[ed] and we needed to restore the last known working file, which was easy to do using Unitrends system.
  • One area for improvement might be allowing the user to delete their own backups.
  • The appliance has saved us money in storage and offsite fees we were once paying for our environment to be backed up.

We do not have experience with any other appliance as we went from using an offsite data company to store and save our data. We moved to Unitrends and have not used any other appliance or company.
