Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

We have been using Unitrends Appliance for about 2+ years to backup all our servers. It provides great backup with de-duplication. Also it is our primary DR/business continuity solution. It can run our physical servers as VMs if the physical server goes down.
  • Differential backup for ever
  • Deduplication
  • Built-in VMs in case of the failure of a server
  • Since the user interface is created in Flash, right click always bring the default Flash menu.
  • Online chat on the appliance user interface will be a better option.
  • The system should have access through a proxy server to get updates.
  • I was able to run a server from Unitrends appliance when the physical server went down due to a hardware failure.
  • I most used the appliance for recovering deleted files/overwritten files.
  • Very good in testing applications before installing to the production environment.
One of the best option in Unitrends versus others is running a VM inside the appliance even without recovering it to another hardware. It has a very user friendly web based interface which needs minimal training.
Most of the major companies talk about very expensive solutions which can be used only for a large enterprise, unitrends has appliances that can fit any size environment.
