Unitrends Cloud Backup Solutions

Meet the “Power” Behind Our Enterprise Cloud Backup

The cloud. Enormous promise—and yet—has there ever been a more over-hyped term in the technology industry? Vendors are constantly trying to sell you their cloud backup product which offers little in terms of additional benefit from the cloud versus your on premise solution. Even worse, these and other vendors are attempting to force you into their cloud services without taking into account limited available WAN bandwidth, SLAs you need for recovery of data, your systems, and your entire IT infrastructure, and your desire to have a single point of responsibility for backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity.

Enter Unitrends.  Unitrends Cloud backup is a disaster recovery and business continuity offering that takes the capabilities of our Recovery-Series Backup Appliances and our Unitrends Enterprise Backup products and enhances them with our cloud capabilities. What does that mean? It means that you get the recovery and recovery assurance technologies you’ve come to expect from our appliances—including granular archiving, Windows physical and guest operating system (GOS) level instant recovery and recovery assurance via auditing, and virtual hypervisor instant recovery and recovery assurance via ReliableDR—and then empowers your appliance with these capabilities and more in our Unitrends Cloud.

Unitrends offers multiple cloud storage options to fit any need, including No Limits Cloud™, Forever Cloud™, and Metered Cloud. Whether you are looking for off-site storage for Disaster Recovery, or require long term retention for regulatory and compliance reasons, Unitrends Cloud is flexible and affordable.

Unitrends Cloud backup is available in three service levels: No Limits Cloud, Forever Cloud, and Metered.  Disaster Recovery Services (DRaaS) can be added to any Unitrends Cloud option except for Metered.

HIPAA Compliance

If your business is part of the healthcare industry, you’re likely facing additional regulatory requirements for data storage and backup and recovery strategies. Typically, healthcare and insurance businesses will need to comply with federal regulations defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, commonly referred to as HIPAA. Among other things, compliance with HIPAA requires specific practices to safeguard and encrypt personal health information (PHI), including PHI  being stored for disaster recovery purposes.

All Unitrends backup and recovery products include encryption and can be easily administered to comply with your business’s HIPAA compliance needs. For our No Limits Cloud and DRaaS customers, Unitrends also supports HIPPA compliance as a Business Associate and will provide these customers with a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) which details how the privacy and security of PHI is maintained in the Unitrends Cloud.
