Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

We use Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery across our Organization. It is our primary means for backup of Virtual Machines including both Windows and Linux, physical servers, Windows files, Microsoft SQL Server, Active Directory and some user PCs. Unitrends addresses data loss prevention by backing up files locally in the appliance as well as a disaster recovery by using Unitrends cloud to save offline copy of the data in the cloud separate from our physical location.
  • It has a simple user interface to schedule data backups according to a schedule.
  • Report logs are easy to understand.
  • User and backup administration is easy to manage.
  • Automated restore testing would be nice.
  • Alert for local and cloud storage full instead of logging into the appliance.
  • Cloud backup cost is expensive compared to other vendors.
  • ROI by working with 1 vendor for backup and disaster recovery.
  • With promotion only pay for support and not hardware.
