More Unitrends Pros »

"One nice feature with Backup Exec is mainly that disaster can happen to any server and the disk image can be destroyed very easily. It's also easy to fully email the backup image and restore the server.""This solution works well and has good integration with technologies such as VMware and Hyper-V.""The most valuable feature is the ability to back up IBM Power virtual servers.""The dashboard was good. I loved to see the maintenance dashboard every time I logged on. That was my first screen because it always gave me a reminder of how many days before my next renewal.""The most valuable feature is the user-friendly interface.""The interface, dashboard, and pricing are all perfect.""The interface for this solution is excellent, and it is easy to restore files compared to other solutions.""The solution is very scalable. Whenever we grew, it was just a matter of adding new licenses, so it's easy to grow."

Cons
"If the interface could be less complex, it is would be great.""I would like to see the real-time replication process improved, and a zero RPO feature added.""It seems like Unitrends moved away from enterprise customer engagement and moved more towards the managed service provider market.""I would like to see more storage options for the free version."

"Veritas Backup Exec should be more user-friendly. The costs should also be much lower and it should be easier to go through the disaster recovery process.""This solution does not support image-level backup of a physical server.""Compared to other vendors, there are features that you will find not included in Veritas.""The cost is quite high. Along with the general costs, the supposed agents that you have to buy for the various options that you want to use ends up driving the costs higher as well.""There are some issues with the Backup Exec Library and the random picking of tapes.""Better integration with non-Microsoft products would be an improvement.""I would like to be able to create a restore task that can be scheduled so that the same restore action will be performed automatically.""In terms of improvements, I think the pricing model could be improved. They charge you by port, for every port that you have even if you're not using all of them."
