Unitrends Bridge and Instant Recovery

p2v. v2v. 1-click. Instant access. Amazing.

\One amazing technical advancement, Unitrends Bridge™, powers Windows physical machine 1-click P2V (Physical to Virtual) and Instant Recovery for all Windows physical servers and any VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V  Virtual Machine (VM).  It is also the technology that powers all of our Windows and virtualization-based instant recovery capabilities.   Unitrends Bridge is standard on our Recovery-Series physical appliances and our Unitrends Enterprise Backup virtual appliances.

Our innovative Unitrends Bridge™ technology enables you to use your Unitrends data protection system to limit your downtime to just minutes regardless of how much data you’re protecting. So instead of waiting to provision new hardware—or even a new site in the case of a disaster—you’re able to spin-up your physical and virtual servers with an industry-leading RTO (Recovery Time Objective.)


Windows Physical to Virtual  (P2V)

1-click, Best-in-Class P2V transforms any Windows system into a native virtual machine that operates on our appliance, or can be run on a Hypervisor as a VM registered as a client to the physical appliance.   With Unitrends Bridge, you’re able to perform Windows Instant Recovery on our Recovery-Series physical appliances and our Unitrends Enterprise Backup virtual appliances.


Instant Windows physical machine recovery

Windows Instant Recovery operates at the GOS (Guest Operating System) level and physical server level.  For our physical appliances, Windows is transformed into a native virtual machine that operates on our appliance, or can be run on a Hypervisor as a VM registered as a client to the physical appliance. For our virtual appliances, the VM operates in essence as a standby server—constantly being updated by each subsequent backup.
 

Instant VM recovery

Instant VM recovery enables the adminsitrators to use VM backups as a hot standby server, or perform HOS-level VMware vSphere Instant Recovery and Microsoft Hyper-V Instant Recovery on our Recovery-Series physical appliances and our Unitrends Enterprise Backup virtual appliance. 

Unitrends 1-click technology further enables the user to relinquish control on a Hypervisor VM so that this VM no longer operates as a standby server. At that point you’re able to run, mount, shrink, grow, convert to other types, and perform other operations on the VM. You may also then protect it again, dramatically simplifying complex upgrades without the complexity of clusters.
