Data Storage: Unitrends Enterprise Backup Brings Virtual Simplicity to Backup Process
Choosing an enterprise-level network backup system often entails multiple compromises. Unitrends Enterprise Backup version 6.3 eliminates compromises by being both robust and easy to use, while still offering advanced capabilities. The product includes support for virtual environments, deduplication, archiving, and cross-platform environments, which makes it worth adding to the evaluation list for enterprises looking to eschew dedicated appliances, without losing advanced capabilities. The Unitrends Enterprise Backup's biggest claim to fame comes in the form of its native support for Microsoft Hyper-V, which no other virtual backup appliance runs natively. As a virtual offering, the product proves easy to scale and can be migrated across virtual machines. Bare metal backups speed the recovery processes by allowing backed up systems to be restored to dissimilar hardware, while snapshot technology provides incremental backups allowing data to be restored from most any given point in time.
