Disaster Recovery (DR) and Continuity Solutions

It is no longer good enough to just protect your data – you need to protect your business. Getting your business applications back up and running quickly is no longer a luxury but a business requirement.

The most common challenges of an enterprise disaster (DR) recovery program are the cost and complexity to gain recovery services. Creating a secondary site just to host recovery services is very expensive. In addition many companies still rely on antiquated solutions such as tape and don’t have the resources or skills to upgrade. Also IT has to dedicate time and budget to crafting, testing and maintaining DR services at a time when they are already overloaded.

Unitrends enterprise backup and business continuity appliances and solutions overcome all of these objections. Unitrends offers a variety of disaster recovery and business continuity solutions designed to get your failed applications up and running in seconds. The same Unitrends products that protect your data provide multi-site replication, instant recovery and failover to the cloud. Unitrends disaster recovery and continuity solutions are easier to deploy and provide 100% confidence that data and applications are protected with quick and easy recovery. Unitrends Recovery Assurance provides documentation to prove that you are in compliance with federal and industry mandates. Unitrends is the only company to offer an SLA, guaranteeing recovery from Unitrends Cloud in under an hour.


Local Disaster Recovery

Unitrends can protect single site organizations from outages in several ways:

  • Backups can be replicated to local media and manually taken offsite. Unitrends removable hard drives meet this requirement
  • Unitrends appliances will instantly spinup failed applications in the event that a server crashes. Once the server has been repaired, the application can then be migrated back at a time appropriate not to impact business.
  • Unitrends appliances can also backup data stored on storage devices such as NAS and SAN.

Multisite Disaster Recovery

All Unitrends Recovery and Unitrends Backup appliances can support data replication and recovery from remote, secondary locations. Each site can provide off-site storage and also act as the disaster recovery site for the other by replicating backup files between the two locations. Easily add replication and backup for a third, fourth or more sites and manage them all through an intuitive user interface. All backups can be managed from a single device, including those at remote locations. Unitrends also supports role-based management so groups can control their own backups without access or visibility to others.

Prove the Value of Disaster Recovery

You don’t want to wait for a failure to happen to show the value of Disaster Recovery investments. Let Unitrends help make the ROI analysis for you.

Unitrends is unique in offering a 1 hour SLA for DRaaS from the Unitrends Cloud. While recovery is really measured in minutes, you will have confidence as we have an SLA to backup our pledge. Unitrends also offers Recovery Assurance, technology to measure and test the ability for failed applications to be spun up during a disaster. Documentation of RPOs and RTOs are then created for compliance reporting. In addition Unitrends products include advanced predictive analytics to continually check for ransomware and identify potential issues before they impact backup and recovery services.

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.
