Features of Unitrends Boomerang

Fastest Path to Optimized VM Replication

In as fast as 15 minutes, Boomerang installs, auto-discovers, and takes a snapshot of your VMs. You can quickly align your VMs by Protection Groups for block-level incremental backups, and then optimize their replication frequency and timing, as well as throttle bandwidth, to balance the degree of protection vs cost of network bandwidth.  All with military-grade encryption, in-flight and at rest.

Multiple Recovery Points Strengthen Your DR Strategy

Ensure your data is resilient to issues with the latest replicated data. You can customize your cloud retention and select from any recovery point you wish to spin up in cloud for failover, DR testing, or migration. 

Unique “Pilot-light” Feature Minimizes Cloud Disaster Recovery Costs

Boomerang stores your backups in low-cost AWS S3, or Microsoft Azure blob storage, until needed for disaster recovery, keeping cloud costs as low as possible. Boomerang’s one-click failover quickly spins them up as native AWS AMIs or Azure VMs. One more click re-converts to VMware VMs and sends them ready to run back to your datacenter. 

Easy, Inexpensive VM Migration to the Cloud

Boomerang automates VMware replication and conversion to native Amazon Machine Images or Microsoft Azure VMs, removing the risk of human error and saving you a bundle in license fees. Change your mind? Boomerang reverse converts, too. 


Boomerang provides choice of the two leading hyperscale clouds – Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, plus copyback to your VMware environment.

VM Recovery via Unique Copyback Capability

Need to recover VMs? With one click, Boomerang takes a snapshot of your deployed VM in the cloud and reverse replicates and imports it directly into your VMware environment, fully ready to run.
