The predictive analytics are great and the reporting is awesome.It is fairly stable.If you are a large organization, this is a product for you.Unitrends has helped us cut down the time that it takes to restore a server to its original configuration.Iinstant recovery (allows a spin-up of your image as a VM on the appliance).VM backup is much faster and more reliable, as I can test my backups with Data Copy Access jobs.It is very easy to set up and get started. Almost too easy. We racked this device and had it up and running in less than 15 minutes.It is an easy system to use. The support, if needed, is always willing to help.

Cons
The support for Office365 backup is atrocious and is something that has to be improved.The user interface is a little bit confusing and it could be better.

If the interface could be less complex, it is would be great.There are some questions as to how safely they are storing backup data.The amount of updates which are being released. Updates should be limited to two or three a year, focusing more on quality instead of a rushed bug release.No appliance update notifications.It would be great to have the job throttle/limit the max number of backups on a single ESXi host.It could be a little more customizable.The ability to run just differentials without pulling the full on your archive.There are a few quirks where the GUI, agent, and back-end are not precisely meshed.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing of this solution is good, and it is one of the easiest things that you can sell Azure with.The pricing of this solution is ok, but I'm expecting that the price will decrease in the future.

No comment.You should be aware how much the monthly costs are to use, what the initial costs for hardware are, and what the options to expand are, if needed.Pricing model constantly changes.We found that the cost of Unitrends was about the same as the Dell DR6300. We liked the fact that the Unitrends appliance was all-in-one.The cost of Unitrends definitely draws you in. The licensing is all included in the appliance, which is a great incentive.Talk with the sales guys. They can work with you on the best package.Initial pricing is competitive. Renewal pricing is steep, so make sure to project costs for the lifetime of the appliance(s).
