Unitrends Backup Testimonial
After demonstrating the versatility of backing up virtualized and physical assets, replication and the ease of recovery and testing of recovery, it made my choice very easy. I have Unitrends Enterprise Backup deployed at each of my four locations. I now spend much less time on the backup maintenance process, which lowers my over-all costs for backup and DR.
