Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance
- Disk to disk backup
- Suppose to do bare metal backup
- Supposed to allow simple restores
- Better more reliable hardware
- Better more reliable software
- Better more reliable support services
- It is mostly negative impact - fortunately we have not had any major data/system losses.
- We have spent more time configuring and fixing Unitrends than actually benefiting from it.
- Most system failures have been with the Unitrends hard drives, we have spent more time recovering Unitrends index, FAT, or other directories needed to use the Unitrends system itself.
Unfortunately Unitrends did not solve the problems we had, it just added to our problems by having to deal with the Unitrends issues.
We made a significant investment in Unitrends and it is difficult to abandon that in such a short time to reinvest in something else, but we can't afford operating without a consistent backup solution, we are now looking to replace it unless Unitrends can have a breakthrough in their HW/SW and support services.
