Unitrends Enterprise Backup NFR Edition

Earlier this year, Unitrends announced a new software-only product called Unitrends Enterprise Backup (UEB) that protects virtual and physical environments both locally and in the cloud.  UEB is available as a virtual appliance integrated with both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, and offers all the advantages of their physical backup appliance solutions, but with the flexibility of a software-only deployment.

What’s cool about it?

  •  Unitrends Instant Recovery for VMware guests
  • They leverage Storage vMotion and boot the VM directly from our backup
  • Unitrends ability to archive data to tertiary storage for long-term retention
  • With VMware version of our Unitrends Enterprise Backup, you can archive to SAN or NAS storage as well as to tape and USB disks.
  • Unitrends offers physical appliances in addition to the virtual appliance UEB software for the IT admin who wants a separate appliance and storage for backups.
  •  Unitrends is able to protect truly heterogeneous environments
  • 40+ operating systems with agents
