Unitrends Enterprise Backup Backup and Recovery Software

Cloud-Empowered Virtual Backup Appliance for VMware and Hyper-V

You’ve built your data center and need to protect it. You’ve standardized on your servers, storage, and virtualization environment. You don’t need more hardware; instead, you need adaptable and agile backup software that will execute within your existing capital infrastructure.

The problem is that traditional enterprise backup and recovery software is complex and expensive. Affordable backup software tends to not adapt to your infrastructure; too many vendors want you to change your data center in order to best work with their software. And of course you weren’t born yesterday—you’ve made a career on adapting to new technologies and using them to offer better service to your business. There’s no way you’re going to let your data protection strategy dictate to you which technologies you can adopt.

Enter Unitrends. Unitrends Enterprise Backup™ is a virtual backup appliance that may be deployed on Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere for enterprise-class virtual, deep virtual,physical protection, and unified compute protection. We offer unmatched backup, archiving, disaster recovery, and business continuity simply delivered via our flexible deployment options with our Unitrends Cloud storage and DRaaS offerings featuring application-level recovery assurance via ReliableDR™. Flexible licensing with both protected capacity or per-socket/server licensing is available as well.

Highlights of our Unitrends Enterprise Backup virtual appliance include:
  • Recovery assurance including the industry’s only Windows VM and physical server instant recovery capability coupled with hypervisor-level instant recovery and auditing via the ReliableDR add-on.
  • Virtualization, deep virtualization, physical, and unified compute protection for over 100 versions of applications, operating systems, servers, and storage.
  • Unitrends Bridge™ enables you to convert physical systems to virtual systems, vSphere or Hyper-V, in a single click to external virtualization hosts. This is also the technology that powers all of our Windows and virtualization (vSphere and Hyper-V) based instant recovery
  • Unified Bare Metal™ is a one-pass dissimilar bare metal capability that performs both bare metal as well as granular file-level backup.
  • NDMP Backup and NAS Backup - Optional NDMP NAS Protection provides enhanced storage integration for EMC and NetApp NAS devices with simplified backup management and improved performance while maintaining access control lists (ACLs) on recovered files. This is in addition to our broad support of other NAS devices using standard CIFS or NFS protocols. 
  • Cloud-empowered disaster recovery and business continuity your way—via our Unitrends Cloud which offers No Limits Cloud™ storage with strict RTO SLAs and Disaster Recovery Services for Windows and VMware. But we don’t lock you in—we offer cloud disaster recovery even via third-party cloud solutions with our CloudHook functionality supporting Amazon, Google, Dropbox and many more.
  • Granular disaster recovery via local archiving—D2D2x (Disk-to-Disk-to-Any) including rotational disk, rotational tape, fixed SAN, and fixed NAS—so that you can build WAN bandwidth-saving disaster recovery and business continuity policies.
  • Our award-winning crazy-committed customer support who leads the industry with 98% customer satisfaction.

Recovery-Series Data Backup Appliances

Physical Appliances for Data Protection, Instant Recovery, and Cloud Recovery

Recovery-Series Detailed Feature List

Support of Your Unique Mix of Data Center Assets
Protection for 100+ versions of operating systems and applications—Unitrends uses a common D2D backup and recovery engine for providing protection for protecting over 100 versions of servers, storage, operating systems, hypervisors, and applications including NDMP for NAS, SAN, Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, AIX, Solaris, iSeries, SQL, Exchange, Oracle, VMware, Hyper-V, and many others. Optimal data protection for this many different environments has driven a unique data protection architecture that supports agent-based and agentless protection as well as file- and image-level protection.
Instant Recovery with Failover Virtualization
With instant recovery for VMware, Hyper-V, Windows, you can completely recover your system in less than 5 minutes.
The most flexible recovery strategies - Instant spin-up recovery? Yes. Instant granular recovery? Yes. Similar and dissimilar physical and virtual bare metal allow you to perform P2P, V2P, P2V, and V2V recovery.
Hot/Cold Bare Metal - By offering both cold and hot bare metal, we offer you the flexibility to easily restore your entire system.
Continuous Data Protection & Point-in-Time Protection
World class RPO (Recovery Point Objectives) - backups can be performed as often as once every 60 seconds. Improve your recovery point objectives with Incremental Forever. Near-CDP with up to 10,000 snapshots per week means smaller backup windows and improved network bandwidth efficiency.
Recovery Assurance for vSphere and Hyper-V
New integration between Unitrends physical and virtual appliances and ReliableDR lets you certify the recovery of applications within your vSphere and Hyper-V backups. As an optional add-on, ReliableDR orchestrates instant recovery on Unitrends appliances and allows for pushbutton failover when you need to recover applications, locally or across data centers. Industry leading DR governance, orchestration and automation is now enabled for Unitrends appliances to give you predictable application recovery plans.
Adaptive Byte-level Deduplication
A deduplication that doesn't require expensive dedicated hardware. Adaptive Deduplication™ is a hybrid data reduction technology combining inline compression with post-processing data deduplication that adapts dynamically to multiple factors.
Unitrends Bridge
Transformation of physical Windows systems into virtual machines (VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V) with this one-click physical to virtual (P2V) feature. Enables instant recovery (Windows, vSphere and Hyper-V) and considerably drives down recovery time objectives (RTOs) for physical as well as virtual backups.
Unified BareMetal
Unitrends Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) has always been a feature that set our company apart, including our patent-pending Meta-Bare Metal technology for unified architectures, first introduced for Cisco UCS. Unified Bare Metal unifies the bare metal backup and master backup so only one backup type is needed. The advantages are enormous, including: increasing retention by over 100%, improving replication performance by over 100%, removing the need to restore a bare metal backup before the file-based backup and allowing bare metal backups to be restored to different size targets, just to name a few of the benefits.
Single Pane of Glass
The Web 2.0 User Interface provides an easy to use drag and drop interface that monitors and manages backup, archiving and disaster recovery through a single, intuitive, pane of glass, boasting a web 2.0-based user interface. This enables you to buy only the appliance you need and yet grow the amount of space on your appliance as your business grows. Single pane of glass also allows enterprises of any size to manage, schedule, and monitor backups and restores of multiple remote offices from a single site, eliminating the need for IT resources in those remote offices.
No Limits Licensing
Imagine ultimate backup freedom with Unitrends No Limits Licensing™ that boasts no per client fees, no per agent fees, no per operating system fees, no per application fees and no new release fees.
Disaster Recovery
Unitrends provides point-in-time data recovery and speedy restore of failed systems. But your data protection strategy requires a third component: off-site storage for your protected data and systems, so Unitrends includes replication to a secondary site, a public cloud or to the Unitrends Cloud. Unitrends offers disaster recovery and business continuity your way—via our Unitrends Cloud which offers No Limits Cloud™ storage with strict RTO SLAs and DRaaS for Windows, VMware, and Hyper-V. But we don’t lock you in—we offer cloud disaster recovery even via third-party cloud solutions with our CloudHook functionality supporting Amazon, Google, Dropbox and many more.
Flexible Recovery Strategies
Including incremental forever, as often as 15 minutes, incremental forever with synthetics for VMware and Hyper-V (as well as some physical environments as well) in addition to fully customizable configurations of backup strategies including full/full, full/differential, full/ incremental, and completely “create it yourself” strategies. We don’t limit you to single server job scheduling nor do we force you to use multiple server job scheduling—we offer both. To improve efficiency we provide Server Group Management to easily create logical groups for fast navigation, simplified backup schedules and self-service management, Exchange incremental backup scheduling with automatic log truncation and single click recovery of multiple SQL databases, significantly reducing setup and management processes.
Make the most of your WAN - Disk, tape (if the hypervisor supports it), NAS, and SAN rotational and fixed archiving of tertiary backups is built in and works alone and with replication. New Parallel Archiving allows archiving of multiple backups at the same time, enabling multiple archive jobs to execute concurrently increasing performance by 50 – 200%.
Simply Scalable™
Enterprise-level data protection for every business. A federated, scalable architecture means flexible deployments and no “fork-lift” upgrades. Our technology supports scaling up and scaling out, but what about scaling down to lower the learning curve of less experienced users? An environmentally adaptive user interface. Our environmentally adaptive user interface provides ease of use without sacrificing click minimization for experienced users. And unlike other products, all with virtually no wizards.
AES-256 Encryption - Conventional encryption takes a heavy toll on the performance and ease-of-use of your information technology infrastructure. By offering a 256-bit AES encryption on the on-premise appliance, our encryption does not cause a burden on systems or people.
