Unitrends Valuable Features

Greg G
Engineer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
The feature I find most valuable is the hardware functionality because it's reliable and it's got predictive analytics and hardware failure. The predictive analytics are great and the reporting is awesome. It is a very reliable product. Unitrends offers a lot of services and that allows us to seed devices. What we do is to create a backup on site, write it to a disc, courier it to Unitrends and they seed it to the cloud. So you don't need to copy terabytes of data over a line. That's very handy. It is all very dependent on what the customer is buying. They can buy a hardware solution or a software solution. We don't particularly like working with a software solution because we don't trust underlying hardware and hypervisors and those type of things. I will compare Unitrends to a Swiss army knife back up. It offers a lot of ways to do all sorts of things. View full review »

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. The racking of the appliance took the longest, as it is heavy. View full review »

The scheduling and event viewer is easy to use and a helpful item when setting up new servers to be backed up. It determines what errors are being generated as a result of an issue. View full review »

The daily backup report is one of the most valuable features. There is a clear report sent and emailed to me every morning that shows if all backups were successful. View full review »
