Unitrends Named Champion of Mid-Market and All-in-One Backup in Info-Tech Research Group's Latest Vendor Landscape

Unitrends today announced that its Unitrends Certified Recovery Suite (UCRS) was named the "Champion" in the Mid-Market Backup Software and All-in-One Backup Solution use-case scenarios assessed in Info-Tech Research Group's new "Select and Implement a Backup Solution" Vendor Landscape. The offering was also recognized as a "Leader" in the Backup-as-a-Service Backup Software, Enterprise Backup Software and Highly Virtualized Backup Environment use cases, and took home the "Best Overall Value" award in four out of the five categories.

The "Select and Implement a Backup Solution" Vendor Landscape evaluated current and alternative backup offerings for their fit within emerging architectures to meet critical restore requirements. Unitrends was one of 14 vendors assessed in the report.

UCRS is a bundled software package comprised of Unitrends Enterprise Backup, ReliableDR and Unitrends Virtual Backup that sets a new price-performance standard for mid-market and larger companies. According to Info-Tech Research Group's Vendor Landscape, UCRS "is a well-rounded, full featured, all-in-one backup solution that is affordably priced for the mid-market client." The offering was also recognized for the following:

  • Incremental forever strategy allows Unitrends to enable fully customizable combinations of full, synthetic full, incremental or differential backups on both single-server or multiple-server backup jobs.
  • Near continuous data protection model allows for recovery point objectives (RPOs) as low as 60 seconds, and failover virtualization enables Instant Recovery for VMware, leveraging storage vMotion for recovery into live mode or audit mode for verification and testing.
  • Unitrends Enterprise Backup provides robust cloud integration. It supports single tenant private clouds and multiple tenant public cloud targets, including Amazon and Google Cloud.
  • Instant VM Recovery uniquely enables users to run virtual machines from backup targets directly for restore testing.

"Unitrends is a fast growing data protection company, now merged with PHD Virtual, focusing on flexibility; offering virtual and physical appliances, broad server, storage, OS, and hypervisor support; and providing multiple recovery and data protection strategies," said Sandi Conrad, director of the Infrastructure Practice at Info-Tech Research Group.

Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category.

"Our cloud-empowered backup and disaster recovery solutions include the industry's most advanced features and functionality, are backed by a world-class support team, and are offered at competitive price points," said Kevin Weiss, Unitrends' president and chief executive officer. "Our solutions also provide freedom and flexibility by easily adapting to evolving IT infrastructures rather than forcing customers to conform to rigid technologies. As a result, we're able to offer data protection at the industry's lowest total cost of ownership, and these recognitions from Info-Tech Research Group substantiate the value we deliver to our customers every day."
