Retailers Must Support Many Applications and Operating Systems

As a result of tight budgets, older products and applications are kept functioning well beyond their advertised life expectancy. The Unitrends Support Matrix lists over 250 different hypervisors, operating systems and applications that can be protected natively. No need to purchase new hardware and software just because your backup solution can’t support them.

Unitrends all-in-one backup and continuity solution helps you resolve the challenges you face everyday. The portfolio provides you with Recovery Assurance and a 98% customer satisfaction rating. Additionally, you’ll have the confidence of knowing that Unitrends provides you with IT resilience through Backup, DRaaS, Automation and Threat Detection.

Retailers Must be Operational 24 x 7 x 365 or Revenue is Negatively Affected

While other industries may have recovery time objectives (RTO) in hours, the retail industry needs RTO times measured in seconds or minutes because downtime means no sales. Unitrends Instant Recovery can failover applications in literally seconds. Unitrends Recovery Assurance delivers automated recovery testing, site and application failover,
ransomware detection, and disaster recovery, both locally and in the Unitrends Cloud.

Unitrends Recovery Series physical appliances are pre-loaded and pre-tuned with powerful software that not only covers on-premises backup but also long-term retention and disaster recovery in the Unitrends Cloud. Unitrends gives you the tools to implement the 3-2-1 rule of data protection, 3 copies of your data, 2 different media with 1 copy offsite.


Unitrends has been able to provide us with peace of mind that we will be able to restore data in case of emergency and enabled us to lower our RTO and RPO significantly. The appliances and services are stable and reliable. Our Unitrends appliance literally paid for itself after being able to restore the 2 million+ files affected by ransomware earlier this year.
