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
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.The ability to back up both physical and virtual appliances under one roof.

Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.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.Replication and restore object in Exchange boxes with possibility to select part of Microsoft directory.Get only one interface to manage all backup sites, secure them with replication, and manage outside LTO media.The WAN accelerator feature has been the most valuable for me. That feature reduced the time needed to complete the task from 25 days to less than a week! This is compared with the original tools used: ntbackup, robocopy and Windows Server Backup.The product allows us to use data more efficiently, reducing the cost of storage and backup time. It is vital to have data available in the shortest possible time.It lets you verify a backup with the least amount of effort.

Cons
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.Making the seeding process more accessible and easier to understand. Also, make more of the undocumented best practices easier to find.

Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.Multithreading 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.Add an archive option to support legal obligations.Some support replies for a broken backup task have been "rebuild the job from scratch" and this is a bad thing to do if you have many VMs and repositories.Offering mobile apps that give engineers a global view of his backup regime would be a "nice to have" feature.The direct SAN backup integration can be perfected by improving the snapshot removal mechanism and process from the storage volumes.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.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.If you have Exchange, Oracle, SQL, or a supported SAN, then I suggest getting at least an Enterprise edition. It’ll pay for itself in no time.
