New cloud storage offering enables customers to simplify long-term data retention, reduce costs and meet stringent compliance requirements
BURLINGTON, Mass., May 28, 2015 Unitrends today announced Forever Cloud™, a new off-site storage option that delivers infinite data retention in the cloud. With Forever Cloud, Unitrends Recovery-Series and Unitrends Enterprise Backup™ (UEB) customers can copy on-premise backups to the highly available Unitrends Cloud™ and retain that data for an infinite number of years.
Unitrends’ Forever Cloud enables customers to easily keep specific data on-premise for short-term retention and rapid recovery needs, while moving backup copies required for long-term retention to the cloud. Not only does this remove the burden of long-term retention management, but it also enables organizations to reduce capital expenses and operating costs by leveraging a hybrid cloud storage model.
Easy and affordable long-term retention is an important feature for organizations in regulated industries that are required to store information for an extended period of time. Unitrends’ Forever Cloud stores a set of daily, weekly and monthly backups and an infinite number of annual backups for one base price. Customers simply pay for the amount of protected data – not for the amount of cloud storage consumed – which contains costs over time.
Unitrends has been aggressively adding enterprise-class services and cost-effective options to the Unitrends Cloud for organizations looking to offload resources to the cloud for data protection purposes. With the addition of infinite cloud retention in combination with the company’s Unitrends DRaaS and recovery assurance offerings, the Unitrends Cloud now provides customers with the most comprehensive, integrated cloud-empowered disaster recovery solution in the industry.
“As organizations increasingly turn to the cloud for backup, storage and disaster recovery, our continual innovation equips them with radically simple, yet extremely effective cloud solutions that meet their individual data protection needs,” said Kevin Weiss, president and chief executive officer at Unitrends. “Unitrends Cloud is a complete cloud recovery service featuring off-site storage, instant recovery and long-term retention, delivering unrivaled data protection that IT professionals can bank on.”
