Key Features of Unitrends Endpoint Backup for Servers

Multi Cloud Continuity

Hourly Direct-to-Cloud Server Backups

Automated, hourly backups replicated directly to the Unitrends Cloud protect servers in remote locations, across distributed environments and in the public cloud. The bandwidth throttling feature minimizes the backup’s impact on production workloads. Each backup is stored in a recovery-ready state for optimal RTO and RPO.

Screenshot Verification

Redundant Cloud Backup Replication

All backups stored in the Unitrends Cloud are automatically replicated within region to a second cloud tenant for redundancy. Cloud storage and retention for your backups is included.

Screenshot Verification

Automated Screenshot Verification

Daily, automated screenshot verification ensures your server backups are healthy and can be easily recovered. Eliminate the challenge and uncertainty of testing remote cloud workloads so you can recover with confidence.

Ransomware Detection

Immutable Backup Storage

Backups replicated to the Unitrends Cloud are stored on immutable blocks within a private cloud tenant. This means they are secure from unwarranted access, changes or deletions. All data is encrypted in-flight and at-rest and stored on encrypted disks.

Cloud Deletion Defence

Cloud Deletion

Unitrends Cloud Deletion Defense acts like a recycle bin for your server cloud backups. If backups are mistakenly or maliciously deleted, you will have a window to recover your valuable data and regain access.

Immutable Storage

Ransomware Scanning & Protection

Ensure backups are protected from ransomware with built-in, native monitoring that utilizes our exclusive behavioral analysis. If ransomware conditions are detected, administrators are alerted and notified to take immediate action.

Rapid Self-Service Recovery

Advanced Recovery Capabilities

Recover how and where you need to with minimal clicks. Launch file and folder restores or export VM images. Instantly virtualize in the Unitrends Cloud or perform Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) to the same or dissimilar hardware. Do it all from a single management portal.

Infinite Retention

Disaster Recovery Testing & Spin-Up

Recover with confidence. Regular disaster recovery testing in the Unitrends Cloud on top of automatic screenshot verification proves backups are healthy and restorable. Spin-up virtual server workloads and run in the Unitrends Cloud in just a few clicks.

Frequently Asked Questions About Server Backup

Server backup is the act of copying server data and storing it in a secondary location. These backup copies can then be used to recover server data in the event that primary data is lost or compromised. Server backup is often used as a BCDR strategy to ensure that data is secure from disaster or data loss events.

Server backup can be accomplished in a number of ways depending on the needs of an organization. Some of the more commonly used methods include:
  • Hardware appliance-based backup:A conventional way to back up server workloads is by leveraging a hardware appliance in your data center. The backup appliance provides the necessary means for accomplishing local server backup in accordance with your disaster recovery plan.
  • Software-based backup:Backup software is another method of deploying local backup to protect your server workloads. In this case, the organization provides the necessary computing power to run the software and store server backups.
  • Cloud backup: This method transfers server data backup over a public or private network to a remote server. Cloud backup does not require local hardware to facilitate the solution. As such, it has no data center footprint or significant maintenance costs. This method is also referred to as online backup or direct-to-cloud backup.

Server cloud backup is the process of backing up server data to cloud-based servers. To accomplish this, a backup application is first used to copy server data. These backups are then stored on media or a storage system apart from the production environment.

In addition, an agent is also installed on the server. This agent is paired with an off-site backup target, such as a server instance running in Microsoft Azure. Data is then transferred to the target over a public or exclusive network and stored away from the off-site location. This data may be recovered from the target in the event of a local data disaster.

Server backups should occur at intervals that align with the entity’s disaster recovery plan. Each organization will have unique recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) for their workloads. Understanding the maximum tolerable downtime and necessity of each server workload will help determine the appropriate RTOs and RPOs respectively.

Unitrends Endpoint Backup for Servers provides automatic hourly backups direct to the Unitrends cloud. Backups are stored in a warm state and can be easily recovered to help organizations meet aggressive RTO and RPO goals.

Server backup software is used to deliver a backup application for accomplishing server backups. This application ensures that server backups are intact and accessible for recovery in the case of a data loss event. These include situations such as hardware failure, user error, cyberattacks or other data disasters.

Server backup solutions store backups on a separate hardware device locally, a remote device or a remote cloud location. Important features of server backup solutions include different approaches to protect various server assets. For example, file-level backups, image-based backups, hypervisor-level backups and application-level backups.

Other notable features are encryption, replication, recovery testing and granular recovery modes. These include, but are not limited to, file/folder recovery, image restores, instant recovery and bare metal recovery.

The cost of a server backup solution depends on a number of factors. The first of these is the level of data backup and recovery you can expect to receive. Lower-cost solutions may offer simple file-level backups to make recovering files and folders possible. However, these solutions would present a challenge in situations where a full rebuild or restoration of the entire server is required.

More comprehensive backup solutions provide capabilities such as instant recovery, image-level recovery and bare metal recovery. These will offer greater resilience for recovery but will carry a higher cost.

Many cloud-based server backup providers simply offer backup software. It is then up to the organization to define computing power, storage, testing and recovery. In most cases, there are incremental costs to each, which drives up the TCO of the solution. This is sometimes referred to as build-your-own server backup.

Unitrends Endpoint Backup for Servers is different. Our comprehensive solution includes backup, storage, retention, testing and disaster recovery. All for a simple, flat-fee cost and predictable TCO.
