Simplify Hyper-V replication with Unitrends.

Hyper-V replication is used to protect the data on your Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines. The process of data replication from a “source” machine to a “target” machine provides reliable protection against potential loss of data. Hyper-V replication could even be considered essential.

And while Hyper-V replication is critical to effective data protection, it shouldn’t be difficult or time-consuming because your IT team has other strategic challenges to address. That’s why Unitrends provides Hyper-V replication capabilities integrated in its industry-leading physical and virtual appliances.
