Quotes From Members Comparing Unitrends vs. Veeam Backup & Replication

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
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.It is a quick and easy way to organize my backups and to keep track of them.The ability to diversify jobs within the same server helps break down a large chunk of data into more manageable and concentrated chunks.The simple and fast restore routine.

Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.It is a good product, in regards to performance, as well as data protection.Replication is the most valuable feature.The ntegration of physical agents with our cloud connect service is positive.Before Veeam, we had backup infrastructure sprawl. Veeam was able to reduce our overall backup windows while reducing our dedicated backup infrastructure.Vendor integration for many of the enterprise features have allowed for us to have greater performance from our storage vendors further improving on our commitments to protect our clients' data.It most valuable features are seeding and faster backups over small links.Veeam replication gives migration tools/options for VMware.

Cons
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.Network-based storage stability could be improved.​​Follow up for the DRaaS service setup. I'm still waiting to schedule a DRaaS test after upgrading several months ago.

Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.In Linux, I suggest you backup for a PostgreSQL database.Cross-hypervisor replication can be improved.Recovery speed is slow. Full recovery on large machines (1TB+) takes too longMultithreading of health check process: This can take too much time to process on large jobs and/or large VMs.Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.One challenge that we have encountered was on the long-term retention of data. Be sure to look into a dedicated deduplication appliance.It could use DR features similar to Zerto.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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).When you purchase initially, get into the program which gives replacement hardware for free when you renew your support agreement.Make sure you do the homework to size the solution properly. Buy the Enterprise Plus licensing if you can afford it.

We have increased our scalability while being able to free up senior resources from recovery activities. I estimate our overall savings to about $20,000 per year.Setup cost and licensing of Veeam are nothing to complain about when compared to similar products for enterprise backup recovery solutions.I think the price is good when you choose the Essentials Suite, but when you buy a full featured version (for instance the Enterprise Plus) the price is a little bit expensive.The price is a bit high. Licensing type is VMware friendly, so it is easy.Since pricing is per socket, it is not expensive to add capacity as you go along.The licensing is based on the number of cores you have in your ESX or Hyper-V environment.Room for improvement is actually more in the way of licensing. The really good and useful features are in the Enterprise plus edition, and that one is really expensive.The pricing and licensing is better than the competitors, but it could be better.
