Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

We currently use Unitrends as our central onsite backup solution. It is used to handle both single-file and full system recovery for both physical and virtual machines. We also use it as part of the DR plan for offsite backup to AWS.
  • File level recovery
  • Backup catalog management
  • Overall reporting
  • Offsite backup when not using Unitrends cloud service or another Unitrends device could be better.
  • Streamlined or single page on a web interface that lists device information/status would be helpful.
  • Better information in UI when features will not work with the current configuration. Data throttling is the main example of this.
  • We have met our data protection needs at a competitive price.

Would you buy Unitrends again?


With feature improvements in recent years, Unitrends has become a great bang for your buck back up solution. Veeam is still a leader in the industry but with its feature set and pricing, Unitrends has been a great purchase for our organization. I feel confident in its ability to protect our in-house digital assets.
In the 3 years I have used the solution, they have implemented many features that have made it a very robust solution. I believe it is a great solution for medium-sized companies that invest in additional units or the cloud service to optimize data size and boost confidence in disaster recovery. In my opinion, where this solution would be least effective is in a small to medium company protecting more than 8TB of data. The current system for doing the offsite transfer to non-Unitrends storage is a bit unwieldy. A system recovery of a large system could prove slow and problematic.
