Unitrends v10 enhances capabilities of Unitrends Backup, improving productivity, compliance for enterprises



Unitrends released Wednesday version 10 of its Recovery Series backup appliances and Unitrends Backup virtual appliances, giving enterprise IT the simplicity, confidence and intelligence to meet business-level SLAs for any application on-premises and in the cloud. Unitrends’ new capabilities piggy back off of its recent fourth fiscal quarter, which delivered 286 percent growth in enterprise appliance sales, year-over-year.

Unitrends v10 controls the initiation and flow of backups and backup copies through a single, simple policy. IT administrators simply set RPOs, RTOs, where data should go, and how long it should be kept. Unitrends automates the entire underlying process, including the analytics and business-level reporting of compliance with those SLAs.  Optionally combine SLA-based policies with granular enterprise scheduling options, and Unitrends can meet the protection demands of any workload.

After a record quarter in growth and adoption of our enterprise appliances and cloud services, these capabilities could not have come at a better time for our customers.”

“This new offering by Unitrends is a perfect example of how backup and business continuity vendors are evolving into data management providers, offering enterprises comprehensive capabilities to tackle the issues associated with housing big data,” said George Crump, Lead Analyst, Storage Switzerland.
