Unitrends Fortifies Software Powering its Data Protection Solutions

Unitrends, the industry¹s fastest-growing multi-environment data protection and disaster recovery company, today introduced Unitrends Release 7.3, an enhanced version of the already robust data protection software powering the company¹s portfolio of physical and virtual backup and recovery appliances. Release 7.3 combines the advanced functionality of private cloud Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and meta-bare metal recovery for Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) servers with enhanced performance, application and platform support.

Widely known for providing instant recovery for physical Windows® systems, Unitrends now extends this same feature to the private replication target of Unitrends Recovery Series physical appliances. This enables cloud service providers and companies using a private cloud to leverage physical DRaaS capabilities.

The launch of Unitrends Release 7.3 also positions Unitrends as the only data protection provider currently offering meta-bare metal recovery for Cisco UCS servers. This industry-first functionality maximizes protection of Cisco USC servers, networks, storage and configuration data, enabling customers to restore UCS fabrics more rapidly and intelligently.

³Release 7.3 underscores Unitrends¹ fundamental commitment to helping our customers play IT safe with the next-generation capabilities they need to meet the challenges of an increasingly demanding IT environment, said Subo Guha, vice president of product management and marketing at Unitrends. ³With industry-leading solutions consistently delivered at a price point and level of ease that meets our customers¹ needs, we truly provide the best cost-to-value ratio in the data protection industry. 

Additional features of Unitrends Release 7.3 include:

  • Simplified deployment of Unitrends Enterprise Backup: Accelerates installations of Unitrends Enterprise Backup, the company¹s software-only backup and recovery virtual appliance, through better storage integration capabilities.
  • Expanded application and platform support: Extends Unitrends¹ existing compatibility with more than 100 different versions of servers, operating systems, storage platforms, hypervisors and applications with support for Windows Server® 2012 R2, Windows 8.1, Hyper-V® Server 2012 R2 and VMware® vSphere 5.5.
  • VMware vSphere template protection: Enables backup and recovery of VMware vSphere templates, which can be quickly restored as new virtual machines. 
  • Domain Name Server (DNS) support for Linux and Mac® OS X®: Provides optional use of a DNS instead of static IP when adding Linux and Mac OS X clients to a system. 

Performance Enhancements Take Center Stage

Unitrends is committed to continually optimizing its data protection appliances so IT departments can manage ever-increasing storage demands despite limited resources and budget. Unitrends Release 7.3 includes the following performance enhancements that deliver on this mission: 

  • Faster Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V backups residing on Clustered Shared Volumes: Improves backup performance by up to 200 percent by enabling parallel backups of virtual machines residing on Clustered Shared Volumes in Hyper-V 2012 R2.
  • Improved deduplication rates and replication performance for VMware vSphere: Achieves higher retention and up to 50 percent faster replication performance by optimizing deduplication capabilities for VMware vSphere environments with high change rates.
  • Faster replication of synthetic backups: Expedites synthetics replication by up to 40 percent by optimizing communication between a replication source and target.
  • Improved deduplication signature algorithm: Offers 10 percent faster deduplication and replication rates by making signatures only one part of the deduplication algorithm.
