Would you buy Unitrends again?


Looked at products like Rubrik which seemed to do more than we needed and also came at a significant cost. Also looked at more similar alternatives such as Arcserve, but felt that Unitrends solution was better suited to our needs especially with their recovery appliance.
Very reliable product, it's well suited for virtual and physical server infrastructure. Great when you need the benefits of simple to configure backups and peace of mind that you have this level of protection. Had a few issues at first with some physical server backups but after some troubleshooting those were resolved. Haven't had to troubleshoot backup issues in over a year.
