Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

We are currently using the Unitrends appliance on a daily basis. It performs our daily backups of both our physical and virtual environment. We've successfully restored many different file types with this appliance. What I like most is their proactive maintenance. Unitrends notified me of failing hard drives on our appliances before I even knew they were failing.
  • Proactive maintenance - notified me when one of the hard drives were failing.
  • Interface is really easy to navigate through, from backing up to restoring, everything is just a few clicks.
  • Graphically I would like to see it improve. Although navigating through the menus is really easy, it looks very plain text.
  • I wish the retention plans worked a little easier. Have had problems with these.
  • The unitrends appliance has saved us a few times with the ability to restore files on the fly. We've had databases go corrupt that we were able to restore within minutes.
  • Veeam
We briefly looked at Veeam.
Well suited for servers physical and virtual. Don't think this will work well with mobile users, probably not the best choice to use for desktops as well.
