Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

It is our primary backup solution. Multiple infrastructure machines back up to the Unitrends including file servers and DC's.
  • It's relatively easy to use.
  • It's all in one.
  • Not very good support for Red Hat VMs.
  • Our file server incremental back ups were failing for weeks and we didn't know until we went to restore something. The system indicated successful incrementals were done.
  • Not easy to expand the existing storage without buying a whole new appliance.
  • Positive: we have recovered a few files from the back-ups.
  • Negative: recently discovered issues with incrementals has undermined confidence in this backup solution.

Do you think Unitrends delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Unitrends again?


It's a reasonable solution if cost is an issue and you're looking for ease of use. However, lack of support for Red Hat virtualization, the issues we've had with it not backing up files it says it backed up and the difficulty expanding an existing installation without buying an entire new appliance are becoming more trouble than it is worth.
