Overall Satisfaction with Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

We use Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance to backup all our environment which is mainly a VMware environment. We also archive to tapes and replicate to unitrends cloud.
  • VMware Backup
  • Cloud Replication
  • Ease of restoration
  • Cost effectiveness
  • It would be nice to have replication synced live so that at any moment users can log into the cloud.
  • Positive: Recovering Key Deleted Files
  • Negative: Sometimes snapshots are not released correctly causing the server to have slow response time
  • Positive: Disaster Recovery Options

Unitrends has a very good and knowledgeable support team. They are always willing to help. We selected Unitrends because of its variety/multi-tiered backup solutions. Also because of cloud options, VMware backup support and cost effectiveness. We are happy with our choice and would recommend this solution to others as well.


Unitrends is a more cost-efficient solution that is well suited for small to medium sized businesses that can spare a few moments for restoration. Whereas some large corporations don't have the spare time and would need to restore backups or have live replication that they can switch to on demand within seconds.
