Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

Our virtual infrastructure and several standalone hosts are backed up and archived with an appliance. We have also used the instant recovery options for testing, browsing backups, and also for quick recovery from issues with servers.
  • Fast backup-- and even faster instant recovery.
  • Flexible, as it performs agentless backups of virtual infrastructure as well as with agent on standalone hosts.
  • Flash interface runs well, providing it's being accessed from a machine with flash that is cooperating. It would be convenient if there was a pc-based app, or manager app, that could also interface with the device for cases in which web based Flash is not available.
  • We have not had to recover from some of the types of loss mentioned, however the speed at which we have been able to resolve the issues we have had, has been a great savings in labor.
We use one panel instead of 3 for these functions.
For high host/vm count mixed environments with smaller disk footprints, the cost structure of the Appliance makes it much more affordable than licensing alone for many other products--- and it's also including the DISK as well as instant -recover which can be a DR solution for some use cases.
