Beyond Virtual™: Enterprise-Class Data Protection for Every Business
Unitrends Enterprise Backup™ protects by bridging virtual, physical, and cloud; Free Edition for up to 4 virtual machines
COLUMBIA, S.C., June 21, 2012 – /BackupReview.info/ — Unitrends, the #1 all-in-one backup, archiving, instant recovery, and disaster recovery physical appliances, today announced a new software-only product, Unitrends Enterprise Backup™, that protects virtual and physical environments both locally and in the cloud. Unitrends Enterprise Backup™ is available as a virtual appliance deeply integrated with Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere to offer the advantages of an all-in-one solution with the flexibility of software-only deployment.
Unitrends also announced aggressive go-to-market pricing that will make protecting up to four Hyper-V or vSphere virtual machines free, with licensing on a per-physical server and a per-socket for virtual hosts priced at less than $1000. The production-ready software will be made generally available June 29. For channel partners for a limited time, Unitrends is offering a 100% discount of up to $10,000 through the company’s First Deal On Us promotion.
“We’re excited about its new capabilities, and how simple it is to implement even in the most complex environments,” said Rob Head, IT Director at Weikel, Johnson, Parris and Rouse, who has been using the software. “As with every new Unitrends release, we’re seeing even greater functionality while the web-based interface continues to get even more elegant and intuitive. It is everything I need in a backup and recovery product, with first class support if I ever need it.”
Steve Duplessie, CEO at Enterprise Strategy Group, sees the new Unitrends offering neatly fitting into industry trends. “The data is clear – users don’t want specialized software that has different and unique management for their virtual and physical worlds – they want one thing, ideally a simple thing. Unitrends solution sits directly in the path of where the market is heading,” he said.
“We’ve had enormous success with our physical backup data protection appliances with revenue growth exceeding 100 percent,” said Mike Coney, CEO, Unitrends. “At the same time, there are many companies that have created a virtualized IT infrastructure who want the flexibility of a virtual appliance offering. Unitrends Enterprise Backup™ and our new release 6.3 support both.”
According to Mark Campbell, Chief Strategy Officer, Unitrends, “The engineering challenge was accommodating not just multiple deployment environments but multiple buyer personas with differing levels of expertise. We created our Simply Scalable™ architecture that allows us to not only scale-up and scale-out but scale-down to deliver an incredible customer experience across a wide variety of business types – from novices to power users.”
