Throughout Q3, Unitrends continued to deliver unmatched virtual, physical and cloud data protection offerings. In August, Unitrends greatly enhanced the software powering Unitrends Recovery-Series, the company’s family of physical backup and recovery appliances, and Unitrends Enterprise Backup™, its software-only virtual appliance. The latest software includes support for third-party cloud storage archives and continues to push virtual, physical and cloud data protection and disaster recovery to new levels of scalability and performance.
