Disaster Recovery Testing | Unitrends

Understand the Risks to Your Business

IT professionals know the risk to their business are multi-fold — operations can grind to a halt in the event of natural disaster, ransomware attack, or employee error. These outages can strike at any time. The only way to prepare for unknown, lurking risks is to understand the impact of an outage before it occurs. Unitrends saves you time by automating a risk analysis with recovery analytics powered by our unique Recovery Assurance technology.

  • Automatically run a disaster recovery test to see reports and statistics revealing how an outage would impact business continuity, and how much data your business might lose.
  • If the automated DR tests show that you can’t meet your SLAs, make adjustments in your backup process and re-run the tests to check the changes.
  • Understand the availability and recovery of business critical applications like Exchange, SharePoint, and SQL Server with built-in, application-aware DR tests.
