Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

As a reseller we aim to use the Unitrends devices to address specific backup and recovery needs for different styles of business. Currently with a lot of different businesses having transitioned to a hybrid model for their infrastructure, the Unitrends device does well in addressing a local and cloud backup need for different situations.
  • Recovery speed.
  • Easy to use portal.
  • Reporting.
  • Specific data set limitations (novel in particular).
  • Up until recently - channel partnership deal registration and communication was very poor.
  • Device price (has been better).
  • For the sites I have implemented this with we have seen a million dollar company use the full recovery system (cloud) during a crash situation.
  • We have seen data recovery in a large ransomware attack flawlessly recovered.

They are similar, Datto is a great fit for smaller businesses I feel, they have a great space in multiple sites and have custom builds for larger business. However I feel some higher end enterprise level setups require larger devices. Education is a great spot oval for Unitrends over Datto in some cases, because of the data size.
Education is a great spot for Unitrends, larger companies with larger data sets are a great place for Unitrends to shine. Companies with multiple locations or those in need of offsite disaster recovery sites are another area where Unitrends shines. Setting up a disaster site is very easy and Unitrends assists in this setup.
