Unitrends Free Extends Enterprise-Class Data Protection to Free VMware vSphere ESXi Hypervisor

August 31 2015

Virtual backup and recovery appliance to be showcased in Booth 813 at VMworld 2015 this week

Unitrends, a leader in enterprise-level cloud recovery, today announced Unitrends Free™ support for the Free VMware vSphere® Hypervisor (ESXi). This radically easy-to-use virtual appliance delivers enterprise-class backup and recovery capabilities for free ESXi environments as well as protection for both physical Windows and virtual systems – for up to 1 terabyte (TB) of data.
Unitrends Free is the industry’s first free backup solution specifically designed for IT professionals seeking cost-effective protection for home labs, early-stage virtualization projects and small environments. The appliance was initially introduced in May 2015, offering hypervisor-level protection for the paid versions of VMware vSphere and Microsoft® Hyper-V®. The company has since made available Unitrends Free for Google Cloud Platform, a jointly developed version of the solution that tightly integrates with Google Cloud Storage.
As of today, Unitrends Free now enables customers to install into and protect virtual machines (VMs) running on VMware’s free vSphere hypervisor and protect physical Windows systems via guest operating system agents.
Unitrends Free provides a simple and highly interactive user experience, eliminating the complexity of backup and recovery without compromising robust functionality or performance. Unitrends Free remains the only free product on the market to offer: protection for an unlimited number of VMs; instant recovery; and fast, incremental forever backups. IT professionals also have direct access to the Unitrends Customer Community from the software’s main dashboard, giving them the ability to interact directly with their peers and Unitrends support without ever having to exit out of the tool.
Unitrends Free support for free ESXi is available now. To obtain a live demonstration, visit the company this week in booth 813 at VMworld 2015. More information is also available at:
