Unitrends Enterprise Backup Reviews Recently Reviewed!


We have used Unitrends for the past 3 years as our primary backup solution. It has been top notch.

Pros: Ease of administration is a huge advantage to using unitrends. It has ran with very few hiccups for the past three years and when there has been an issue their support was right on it to help us.

Cons: Would like to have a better option to restore exchange data besides kroll ontrack. Beyond that very little would be considered a con.

Overall: The biggest benefit was a true all-in-one backup solution for our entire environment and the ability to archive backups as well.

Pros: The interface on the software looks like it was well thought out. The software integrates with vsphere easily and backups/restores are easy to manage.

Cons: The main issue I can think of for the software is that the errors are not always informative. You have to contact support because the errors are sometimes ambiguous

Best backup I ever managed

Pros: Easy and intuitive to use, fast to set up and great customer support. Easy to manage, all you need is to check your email and make sure everything is green.

Cons: Expensive solution that needs to be properly sized, otherwise you will see yourself running out of space and looking for an upgrade. Make sure you know your environment and your data growth rate.

Pros: Unitrends does an excellent job of backing up our servers. We are virtualized and only use Windows Server so I can't speak to it's function with Linux or other OS. Our school district is small and we currently have 8 virtual servers on the back of 3 physical servers. We have the Recovery-604. The deduplication works extremely well and we are able to retain backups for many months! We started using this new appliance after upgrading 4 months ago and we still are under 30% of its capacity. We have 4TB backup capacity and backup 650GB uncompressed data. It has a range of features and allows you to schedule backups and backup types. It also allows for restoration down to the file level. It backs up reliably and restores quickly. I have never had an issue with a restore in the last 4 years I have used Unitrends. The new device also allows for external archiving.

Cons: The price is a little high but the service and support is great so that more than makes up for it!!!

Overall: A dependable, feature rich, cost effective backup solution.

Pros: If you need your data backed up and retained, this product is great!
Fully backs up VM with a full and incremental. Need to restore a VM back to a date in time, its flawless. Their support is great at helping regarding issues. If you just need a file recovered from 30 days ago, this product will get it!

Cons: VM backups only work on Vcenter. If you have the free version of VMware... they may or may not be able to run. I do not back up windows environment but it looked a bit .... tricky.

Overall: Had to recover VM's to a certain point. Full system restore. Saved alot of lost data.

Pros: All necessary features. Cost effective

Cons: Interface and tools are not intuitive.

Overall: I have been using Unitrends for about a year now. It does what it is supposed and handles everything I need it to but it doesn't really shine at anything. The interface is not very intuitive.
