BURLINGTON, Mass., July 7, 2015
Unitrends today announced that its Recovery-943S all-in-one purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA) was named the “Best-In-Class” in DCIG’s 2015-16 Hybrid Cloud Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide, earning the highest ranking of the 58 products evaluated. The company’s Recovery-936S appliance was also recognized for technology excellence, receiving the elite “Recommended” ranking for its ability to protect complex enterprise IT environments. Six additional Unitrends Recovery-Series models topped the charts with “Excellent” ratings for their robust features and support for the various backup requirements of large to midsized enterprises.
The DCIG 2015-16 Hybrid Cloud Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide is designed to give organizations insight into the appliances that can enable them to incorporate cloud services into their backup and disaster recovery strategies. DCIG evaluated multiple products from 10 vendors, comparing their respective features in five general categories: Virtualization, Management, Software, Hardware and Support. The analysts calculated each appliance’s score in these categories and determined an overall rating of Best-In-Class, Recommended, Excellent, Good and Basic.
“Unitrends’ Recovery-943S and Recovery-936S stand out from the competition in the high-end hybrid cloud backup appliance market, delivering arguably better protection and recovery for highly virtualized environments as well as connectivity to multiple cloud providers,” said Charley McMaster, senior research analyst, DCIG. “The appliances also ranked highly based on a combination of scale, flexibility, and management and monitoring features, as well as robust optimization and encryption options to and from the cloud.”
Unitrends unveiled its third-generation Recovery-Series family of PBBAs in January of this year. The portfolio maintains a new industry standard for backup and recovery performance with tiered flash storage and makes cloud adoption much more affordable for companies of all sizes. DCIG’s recognition of Unitrends’ innovation extends well beyond the top two products in the Recovery-Series family to the following six models, which the analyst firm deemed “Excellent” in the buyer’s guide:
“DCIG’s buyer’s guide underscores the tremendous innovation of our Recovery-Series product line, leading the evaluation with five of the top eight hybrid cloud backup appliances,” said Kevin Weiss, Unitrends’ president and chief executive officer. “Not only do our physical appliances deliver advanced backup features like tiered flash storage, but they are cloud-empowered, enabling customers to leverage a hybrid cloud model for 100 percent recovery assurance and business continuity. The DCIG rankings are evidence of our commitment and unwavering focus to deliver exceptional data protection products that organizations can rely on to keep their business up and running.”
