Further expanding its operating system, virtualization and application support, Unitrends today announced the latest version of its data recovery software with new support for the Windows Server 2008 family and the Novell OES family of products, including Microsoft Hyper-V and Xen virtualization platforms. Unitrends Release 4.1 also includes expanded multi-appliance management and monitoring capabilities as well as enhanced support for Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems.


“As a managed service provider, we use Unitrends’ solutions to remotely manage the data protection for more than 30 customers,” said Scott D'Amore, senior systems engineer, BPI Information Systems. “The enhanced management capabilities of their latest software release have improved our ability to integrate the management of these multiple units while supporting our customers’ needs for 64-bit operating system support. Unitrends is an ideal solution for simplifying data protection and recovery and eliminating cumbersome tape backup processes.”


The new Unitrends Release 4.1 backup and recovery software offers support for more than 40 operating systems and applications. This support now includes:

·         Windows Server 2008 (including Hyper-V)

·         Exchange 2007 support on Windows Server 2008

·         SQL 2008

·         Novell OES1 and OES2 (including Xen and Groupwise 8.0)

·         MacOS X 10.5

·         Linux 64-bit

The latest Unitrends release also delivers extensive context-sensitive help, increased appliance management and monitoring functionality, and new reporting flexibility. In addition, Unitrends Release 4.1 adds new appliance scalability features and supports NAS protection via CIFS and NFS protocols without a high-priced NDMP agent.


“At Unitrends, broad operating system and application support has become our hallmark,” said Duncan McPherson, chief executive officer, Unitrends. “With our latest software release we have continued this tradition by expanding support to a host of 64-bit operating systems while adding key new features for management and monitoring flexibility. With Unitrends, customers have the confidence that they can respond to increasingly more aggressive backup window requirements from within a simple, yet sophisticated, central interface.”
