March 14 2012

Data protection vendor Unitrends leads the industry with failover virtualization for both Windows and VMware

Unitrends, the leading provider of all-in-one backup, archiving, and disaster recovery solutions, today announced the availability of instant recovery for Windows and VMware via their failover virtualization technology.

Failover virtualization is designed as a first step to recover immediately and simply from critical system failure. It reduces the time to recover a failed system to less than five minutes, thereby increasing business continuity and reducing IT staff repair time.

"IT organizations need an affordable and manageable way to ensure non-stop business operations and continuous data protection," said Mike Coney, CEO of Unitrends. "Instant recovery through failover virtualization allows Unitrends to help organizations of all sizes meet those requirements."

The availability of instant recovery for both Windows and VMware via one solution is a key differentiator for Unitrends from other backup and recovery solutions in the marketplace, and makes it attractive to both end users as well as resellers.

“With Unitrends new Instant Recovery feature, CNP is now able to offer a simple and affordable disaster recovery solution to our customers,” said Andrew Flowers, Senior Network Engineer of CNP, “that allows us to cut their downtime window from days to a matter of minutes.”
