Microsoft Windows Backup and Recovery

The Solution Overview

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

  • 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.
