Non-profit Health Research and Consulting Organization Chooses Unitrends Over Symantec for Multiple Locations

November 01 2011

Unitrends saves the Altarum Institute both time and money when compared to Backup Exec's escalating costs and declining support while providing essential functionality

Unitrends, the leading provider in all-in-one backup and disaster recovery solutions, today announced that the Altarum Institute has made the switch from Symantec to Unitrends to protect the health organization's data in their widespread network of remote offices throughout the U.S.

Faced with lengthy backup time, added costs to protect their data off-site and declining support from Symantec, Kenny Moore, Altarum's IT Specialist, realized that it was time to find a new backup solution. Unitrends Recovery Appliances were able to greatly reduce the amount of time it took Altarum to complete their backups and easily tackled the problem they faced with multiple widespread locations, all from an easy-to-use graphical interface.

"When we received our appliance at every site, we got all of the things we were looking for and the price was right," Moore stated. He added, "Unitrends gives us the option to access recovery files across our own network. That was one of the bonuses since we could vault ourselves."

"Unitrends multi-site data protection provides organizations like Altarum a huge return on investment in terms of their IT administrative staff and overall solution costs," said Maria Ellison, Vice President of Sales Engineering at Unitrends. "We are delighted that Altarum has trusted us with their data protection."
