Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

Our North American companies use Unitrends to back up our servers. It allows us to have regular backups, disaster recovery, and required archives.
  • Our full backups used to take hours and hours, and interfere with use. Unitrends reduced our backup time tremendously. Now our backups are complete in a fraction of the time.
  • Unitrends is reliable. I can trust the backups are complete and that we have no data loss.
  • It is simple to restore data. I can even create a virtual server on the Unitrends hardware from backup if one of my servers fail. That is a valuable feature.
  • The Unitrends support team is excellent. I always talk to someone in the U.S., and they are courteous, and respectful. I enjoy talking to them whenever I have a question.
  • I like how Unitrends updates and enhances the product. Only once have I had issues with an update, but once I reported the issue, a new update was released to fix it. I really have no complaints.
  • Because Unitrends does not have licenses to purchase for servers or applications backed up, we saved over $10K in the first three years. That includes the purchase of the Unitrends, and the backup disks needed to archive monthly.
Unitrends was a complete system. It did not require additional devices or licenses. Therefore it is faster and costs less.
Unitrends is well suited in an environment that is lacking a disaster recovery [plan]. We have both virtual and physical servers; Unitrends handles both well. If you do not have a virtual environment, and do not have spare servers, Unitrends' ability to create a virtual server from a physical server's backup is probably very important.
