Backup and Continuity for Linux

The Solution Overview

Unitrends offers enterprise-class granular backup and recovery at the deep virtual and physical level for Linux as well as virtual protection at the hypervisor level.

Deep Virtual and Physical Linux Backup

Unitrends protects Linux natively, meaning that the user has the option of deep virtual protection when Linux is operating within a virtual machine and physical protection when Linux is operating on a physical server. Features of our Linux protection include:

  • Full/Differential, Full/Incremental and Forever Incremental backup schedules.
  • Application-aware, adaptive deduplication for reduced footprint and backup/replication windows.
  • Application consistent backups.
  • Reduced snapshot overhead in virtual environments.
  • Granular file and folder exclusion.
  • Integrated Bare Metal Recovery (iBMR) from a single-pass backup.
  • Protection for physical RDM, iSCSI pass-through, and independent persistent disk configurations in VMware vSphere environments.

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.
