Features of Unitrends Cloud

Long Term Retention with Forever Cloud
Purchase Just What You Need -  Long term retention data is different than short term retention.  You may need many copies of your backup on-premise for fast recovery from a variety of events.  However, you may only need to retain a smaller set of data long term.  Forever Cloud allows you to purchase just the amount of cloud storage you need in 500GB chunks and stores it forever for one low price.

Long Term Retention of Backup Copies - Retain backups on the highly available Forever Cloud designed to preserve backups for an infinite number of years.  By default, Unitrends will keep the follow retention policy for all backups stored in Forever Cloud:  a set of 7 daily, a set of 4 weekly, 12 monthly and unlimited annual backups.

Easy / Eliminates Burden of rotational media– Remove the burden of long-term retention management from primary site and automate the retention process.   Unitrends Forever Cloud provides an effective alternative to sending tapes or other rotational media off-site for long term retention.

Extends On Premise Storage -  By moving more data off-premise, Unitrends free up storage on your on-premise applianc, allowing you to purchase a smaller appliance or store more frequent short term backups.  As a result, Forever Cloud can reduce capital cost and operating expense.

Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity - Unitrends Forever Cloud Data  is available for use with optional Unitrends Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and Recovery Assurance for disaster recovery and business continuity in the cloud.
Security and Compliance
Military Grade Encryption - Configurable security options with AES-256 encryption of data in-flight and at-rest.

Multi-tenant – Secure your data in the cloud from others with integrated multi-tenancy in the Unitrends Cloud

Secure Hosted Sites – Data is always secure in SSAE-16 certified data centers for peace of mind 
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.
Minimize Data Transfer
Advanced WAN Optimization – Compression combined with variable block source deduplication transfers only changed data for highly efficient use of available WAN bandwidth.

Granular Replication – Scheduled replication can occur as often as every 60 seconds for near-continuous data protection to meet any demanding RPO.

Optional Seeding – Integrated local archiving can optionally be used to establish initial data set in the cloud reducing WAN demand. Seeding allows you ship your data to us on disks overnight instead of taking weeks to transfer mulitple TBs over the Internet. Available to customers in the U.S.
Multiple Cloud Storage Options
Unitrends offers multiple cloud storage options to fit any need, including Unitrends No Limits Cloud™, Unitrends Forever Cloud™, and multiple Public Cloud options for low cost storage and retention. Disaster Recovery Services(DRaaS) can be added to any Unitrends Cloud option.
