Unitrends Enterprise Backup 9.0: Simple and Powerful Data Protection for the Whole Data Center

Backup and recovery, replication, recovery assurance: all are more crucial than ever in the light of massively growing data. But complexity has grown right alongside expanding data. Data centers and their managers strain under the burdens of legacy physical data protection, fast-growing virtual data requirements, backup decisions around local, remote and cloud sites, and the need for specialist IT to administer complex data protection processes.

In response, Unitrends has launched a compelling new version of Unitrends Enterprise Backup (UEB): Release 9.0. Its completely revamped user interface and experience significantly reduces management overhead and lets even new users easily perform sophisticated functions using the redesigned dashboard. And its key capabilities are second to none for modern data protection in physical and virtual environments.

One of UEB 9.0’s differentiating strengths (indeed, the entire Unitrends product line) is the fact that in today’s increasingly more virtualized world, they still offer deep support for physical as well as virtual environments. This is more important than it might at first appear. There is a huge installed base of legacy equipment in existence and a lot of it has still not been moved into a virtual environment; yet it all needs to be protected. Within this legacy base, there are many mission-critical applications still running on physical servers that remain high priority protection targets. In these environments, many admins are forced to purchase specialized tools for protecting virtual environments separate from physical ones, or to use point backup products for specific applications. Both options carry extra costs by buying multiple applications that do essentially the same thing, and by hiring multiple people trained to use them.

This is why no matter how virtualized an environment is, if there is even one critical application that is still physical, admins need to strongly consider a solution that protects both. This gives the data center maximum protection with lower operating costs, since they no longer need multiple data protection packages and trained staff to run them.

This is where Unitrends steps in. With its rich capabilities and intuitive interface, UEB 9.0 protects data throughout the data center, and does not require IT specialists. This Product in Depth assesses Unitrends Enterprise Backup 9.0, the latest version of Unitrends flagship data protection platform. We put the new user interface through its paces to see just how intuitive it is, what information it provides and how many clicks it takes to perform some basic operations. We also did a deep dive into the functionality provided by the backup engine itself, some of which is a carryover from earlier versions and some which are new for 9.0.

The New Era of Secondary Storage HyperConvergence

The rise of hyperconverged infrastructure platforms has driven tremendous change in the primary storage space, perhaps even greater than the move from direct attached to networked storage in decades past.

Hyperscale Cloud Vendors vs. Cloud-Enabled Data Protection Vendors

Cost alone should not be the deciding factor when deciding between a hyperscale cloud vendor or a cloud-enabled data protection provider.

Recovery Assurance: The Critical Success Factor for Cloud-based DR

Mike Tyson famously observed “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” The question is, will your Disaster Recovery plan survive that punch and save the day. In this presentation, Jim Whalen of Taneja Group and Dave Leclair of Unitrends will discuss cloud-based Disaster Recovery, how Recovery Assurance is an absolutely crucial component of any DR plan and why choosing a DRaaS provider needs to be on everyone’s short list of options when developing their Disaster Recovery plans.

Accelerating Cloud Transformation with Microsoft StorSimple's New Virtual Appliance

We've always admired StorSimple from before Microsoft acquired them. And what was Microsoft up to, getting into the storage infrastructure space? Well, if it wasn't apparent before it is now - Microsoft StorSimple is a great on-ramp to the cloud (Azure naturally), especially if formal executive sponsored cloud transformation initiatives just aren't in the cards for the rank and file IT organization. And this week Microsoft just announced a virtual StorSimple appliance option that can help accelerate cloud transformations even faster.

Compliance in the Cloud

Compliance in the cloud raises numerous questions: Responsibility for protecting this data resides with the business, the cloud backup vendor and the cloud owner, but most chiefly it's the business's responsibility.
