Unitrends Boomerang AWS Test Drive gives VMware administrators a free opportunity to evaluate the integrated solution for VM migration, cloud-based disaster recovery and cloudbursting

BURLINGTON, Mass., Nov. 5, 2015 –/ – Unitrends, a leader in enterprise-level cloud recovery, today announced the launch of a new Test Drive for Unitrends Boomerang™ on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The AWS Test Drive provides a private IT sandbox environment that allows IT administrators with enough free AWS datacenter time to learn about and investigate popular third-party solutions. Unitrends Boomerang is a radically easy-to-use and cost-effective virtual appliance for replicating VMware virtual machines (VMs) to the AWS Cloud for low-cost backup and disaster recovery. Boomerang also automatically remodels replicated VMs to native Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) for fast execution, providing an ideal solution for migrating on-premise systems to the AWS Cloud and for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).

AWS Test Drive helps users to rapidly deploy and evaluate enterprise solutions created by AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting and Technology Partners. The Boomerang Test Drive on AWS includes a Boomerang license pre-integrated with AWS, enabling users to:

  • Replicate up to two VMware VMs in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for low-cost backup and storage;
  • Remodel these VMs on command as native AMIs in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) for disaster recovery (DR, DRaaS) or VM migration to the cloud; and
  • Access Boomerang online resources and community forums for support, peer interactions and guidance.

“I am impressed with how quickly and easily I was able to use Boomerang to replicate VMs onto AWS to test migration, backup and DRaaS scenarios. It’s the most straightforward solution I’ve evaluated. I am recommending Boomerang to my clients without hesitation,” said Steve Cvar, president of the Cvar Group.

Unitrends customers across four continents are using Boomerang for cost-effective hybrid disaster recovery, quick cloudbursting capabilities and migration of VMs in VMware environments. To date, companies have successfully performed thousands of VM replications with Boomerang.

“Our Boomerang Test Drive on AWS is an essential tool for our prospects,” said Dr. Mark Campbell, Unitrends’ chief technology officer. “The Boomerang Test Drive on AWS enables VMware users to quickly evaluate how fast and easy it is to realize the benefits of using AWS for low-cost backup, effective disaster recovery, or to migrate their VMs to the AWS Cloud. User feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.”
