Symantec Backup Exec 11d

The traditional focus of data protection can be boiled down into two words: making copies. But as the sheer volume of data grows and recovery becomes ever more crucial, the emphasis in data protection is shifting from backup and replication to fast and accurate recovery. Being able to manage data for fast backup and even faster recovery has become mission critical in all sizes of companies.

Using a Public Cloud for DR - Is it for Real?

Join us for this in-depth 60-minute roundtable hosted by Arun Taneja on using public cloud for DR. Enterprises of all sizes have started using the public cloud for some workloads. Backup and recovery and archiving are two prime examples of such workloads. But can the public cloud be used as a disaster recovery site? What are the pros and cons of such an approach? What best practices should apply? Is it only for small businesses that do not have a secondary site of their own? Or is there relevance even for larger organizations?

How to Sell Backup to Your CFO

A CFO is responsible for managing financial risks, so getting their buy-in on a data backup and recovery strategy should be easy – right? But some CFOs focus on minimizing costs and see data protection as another expense from IT that spends a lot of money already. You need a plan. 

Check out this upcoming live and interactive eSeminar and join IT pros from the Taneja Group and Unitrends as they discuss how to create a bridge between you and your CFO with a shared understanding between risk and reward.

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 Big Role of Physical Backup Appliances

Virtual backup appliances (VBAs) are an instance of backup software running in a virtual machine on a general purpose server. VBAs are flexible and effective, and they are usually simple to deploy. Having said that, physical backup appliances (PBAs) have distinct advantages in several areas.

Hyperscale Public Cloud vs Value-Add Cloud from DP/DR Vendors: Which is Better?

Hyperscale clouds get all of the press, but is it really a case of “go big or go home”? The giant cloud providers offer great prices on bulk storage but the cloud can act as much more than just a backup destination. There’s a lot of value residing within the individual cloud offerings of the data protection vendors, with an entire spectrum of services ranging from standard backup storage to Managed Archiving to Disaster Recovery as a Service. And more. 

Join us on this panel discussion to learn about what’s available and how to take full advantage of the range of cloud services offered so that you can precisely match vendors’ offerings to your business needs.

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.

Unitrends Really Raises the Bar on free Data Protection

On May 12, 2015, Unitrends released a new free virtual appliance backup product, Unitrends Free. Unitrends Free shares the core software engine of Unitrends flagship product, Unitrends Enterprise Backup (UEB), but is specifically designed for IT professionals seeking protection for home labs, early-stage virtualization projects and small environments. Unitrends Free is a genuinely usable version of this full product that is simply limited to 1TB of protected capacity. 1TB lets users do more than just test the product: they can use it in production for as long as they want.

The free product boasts functionality that is often unavailable even in full versions of competing products. For example, Free supports both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments as well as multiple VMs and individual item recovery. It allows the user to perform both full and incremental backup and create synthetic fulls in the background. And although recovery verification is considered a high end functionality, this free product has it. And the list goes on. 

Taneja Group believes that Unitrends is setting a new standard in a free product, not only in its full functionality but in professional support. These are all novel things in the fast-moving data protection industry, and Unitrends is accelerating the pace of innovation even more.  Read on for more details.
