Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

We use Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery for all our backup and disaster recovery needs. We use Unitrends for the whole organization. We backup 9 Windows servers. We also have cloud retention through Unitrends for our mission-critical files and SQL database. Unitrends has been a truly set it and forget it backup solution without near as much interaction needed as previous solutions I have used. Email reports are to the point and don't overload my inbox for each backup, but give me a summary that I can glance at and tell in just a minute if all backups were successful.
  • Easy setup
  • Easy job setup
  • Easy restore
  • I find it difficult to see how much space each backup is taking
  • Way easier to just set up to backup files on a device instead of the whole device without getting a warning message
  • Reliable backups to key files and data
  • Easy to use interface
  • Cloud retention

Veeam Backup & Replication
Unitrends has a friendly interface that allows for seamless, easy restores and easy monitoring. I can restore files in just a few click with options of either in the original location or to a new location. I get daily emails that show the results of the backups and if any have warnings. From my experience, and lack is that it seems difficult to find out how much space a particular backup is taking. Also, I would like to backup just some files on a device and if I select that I get a warning the the device isn't being backup up completely and no obvious way to shut off the warning.
