Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

The Unitrends backup appliance is currently used for our daily backup process for the whole organization. Once a week we have it archive to an external hard drive for off-site disaster recovery. The appliance makes the process dead simple with archive scheduling so we are able to just grab the archive when it notifies us it is complete and send it to storage.
  • Simple scheduling interface and wizards to complete the basic setup so you can have a proper backup in no time.
  • Easy archiving so we can focus on other tasks.
  • Support is friendly and easy to work with if you run into a problem and need help.
  • The flash based menu system should be upgraded to HTML 5.
  • Ability to easily archive off-site using an rsync target. It is just too expensive to pay for 2 appliances when one is really just a storage target.
  • We have successfully recovered files as needed.
  • We have successfully converted a physical server to virtual using the appliance's bare-metal tools.
We decided to move to an appliance rather than our previous server based software install. It simplifies deployment and licensing. The dedicated appliance means that more hardware resources are available for our real work.
The appliance works really well in virtualized environments.
