Unitrends provides enterprise-level data protection at the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) in the industry.  Designed for small and medium-sized businesses, Unitrends combines backup and disaster recovery functionality in a single solution, allowing IT professionals to protect and quickly restore data, applications, operating systems, and hypervisors.

Focus on your business, not your backup

We believe that data protection should be simple and reliable, from its day-to-day management to the fateful moment when you need to recover data or restore a whole system.  This is why Unitrends provides a single pane of glass for managing backups across all platforms, and why we are dedicated to maintaining our world-class, U.S.-based support team.

We also believe that data protection needs to scale with your business.  Our licensing model begins and ends with the purchase of our all-in-one solution: our customers never pay per client, agent, or operating system.


Thousands installed – and counting

Founded in 1989, Unitrends’ initial focus was on backup software for UNIX systems.   Following a round of venture capital funding in 2003, Unitrends developed its first appliance.  Today, Unitrends provides an all-in-one backup solution and disaster recovery solution that protects more than 100 versions of operating systems and applications.  An additional round of funding in 2008 allowed Unitrends to grow to its current status as a leader in the Disaster Recovery and Business Systems Continuity market, with thousands installed worldwide.

Unitrends Enterprise Backup™


Bridging the Gapueb-box

Virtual. Physical. Cloud.


Unitrends Enterprise Backup™ protects by bridging virtual, physical, and cloud. Unitrends has provided next-generation enterprise-class data protection to thousands of customers. Now with Unitrends Enterprise Backup™ we are offering a software-only solution available as a virtual appliance for Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere that goes beyond virtualization. No longer do you have to learn and manage two or more separate products to protect your virtual and physical infrastructure and extend that data protection to the cloud.


What’s Inside?


Unitrends Enterprise Backup™ protects by bridging virtual, physical, and cloud.


Free Edition. Not free trial.

Not crippled software that doesn’t let you schedule a backup. Nope – we offer a fully functioning free edition for up to 4 Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere virtual machines. Not trial software – forever software.

Design IT around your customers instead of your backup. Heterogeneous? We support over 100 versions of servers, storage, operating systems, hypervisors, and applications including NAS, SAN, Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, AIX, Solaris, iSeries, SQL, Exchange, Oracle, VMware, Hyper-V, and many others. Optimal data protection for this many different environments has driven a unique data protection architecture that supports agent-based and agentless protection as well as file- and image-level protection.

Flexible recovery strategies.

Instant spin-up recovery? Yes. Instant granular recovery? Yes. But we’re just getting started. Similar and dissimilar physical and virtual bare metal allow you to perform P2P, V2P, P2V, and V2V recovery.

Flexible data protection strategies. 

Of course we offer incremental forever with synthetics for VMware and Hyper-V (as well as some physical environments as well.) But we also offer fully customizable configurations of backup strategies including full/full, full/differential, full/ incremental, and completely “create it yourself” strategies as well. And we don’t limit you to single server job scheduling nor do we force you to use multiple server job scheduling – we offer both.

Global deduplication and CBT. 

We offer compression and deduplication across multiple storage devices via our advanced storage virtualization and thin provisioning capabilities that are built-in to our virtual appliances. And CBT (Change Block Tracking) is supported on both Microsoft and VMware hypervisors to eliminate redundant data as well.

Instant recovery. 

Failover virtualization enables instant recovery for VMware

Near-continuous data protection. 

World class RPO (Recovery Point Objectives) – backups can be performed as often as once every 60 seconds.

Archiving: make the most of your WAN. 

Disk, tape (if the hypervisor supports it), NAS, and SAN rotational and fixed archiving of tertiary backups is built-in and works alone and with replication.

Replication and disaster recovery.

Single-tenant and multi-tenant replication is supported both in a private cloud as well as our public cloud Vault2Cloud service.

Environmentally adaptive user interface.

Our technology supports scaling up and scaling out, but what about scaling down to lower the learning curve of less experienced users? Our environmentally adaptive user interface provides ease of use without sacrificing click minimization for experienced users. And unlike other products, all with virtually no wizards.
