Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

After tornados swept through Nashville in spring 2020 and severely damaged several of our clients' properties, management decided it was time for us to implement a more robust backup plan that incorporated offsite archiving and disaster recovery. Unitrends' onsite Backup Appliance with Forever Cloud and DRaaS options provided a cost-effective means to address all of our needs with a single provider. We are now backing up all of our servers to our onsite appliance and replicating the backups to Unitrends cloud, and our core business servers can be spun up in Unitrends' data center within 24 hours should disaster strike our on premises data center.
  • Flexible backup scheduling and retention settings.
  • Cloud synchronization of all backups.
  • Extensive host platform support.
  • Limited functionality with Citrix Xen Hypervisor.
  • Won't really know this until/unless we encounter a failure and need to leverage their DRaas.

Our Quest license was coming up for renewal when we embarked on this initiative. I inquired about Quest's DR options and was floored by the pricing. Unitrends offered all the features we were looking for at a much better price point.
Great option for HyperV or VMWare systems. For Citrix Xen Hypervisor, you need extensive storage resources to implement Unitrends at the host level. Unfortunately, we are limited to using the backup agent and will have to restore individual VMs in the event of a failure.
