Unitrends launches a ‘new breed of backup and recovery appliances’

Unitrends has announced the availability of new Unitrends Recovery Series MAX appliances that give IT departments and MSPs an entire data recovery environment.
“Unitrends Recovery MAX represents a new power dimension over and above traditional backup and recovery appliances on the market,” said Joe Noonan, vice president product management and marketing, Unitrends. “Organizations require more power to host failed applications on a local backup appliance, while continuously protecting healthy applications both locally and in the cloud. As a result, we have super-charged this segment of the Recovery Series family.”
The new appliances solve a specific business challenge for organizations that lack local recovery infrastructure. Without that infrastructure, even small outages of a single machine force more complex remote recoveries, which can increase downtime and reduce technician efficiency.
Both MSPs and enterprises with distributed remote locations suffer from this challenge. Recovery Series MAX not only provides data protection and recovery software, but comes equipped with supercharged computing power and block agent recovery to enable on-the-box recovery and hosting of failed applications on site. These appliances, sized at 1-8 TB, also deliver Unitrends’ advanced enterprise-level features, such as ransomware protection, proactive analytics and self-healing hardware.
Unitrends Recovery Series MAX is a series of three new high-powered appliances available under two different configurations – three under the Unitrends brand and three under the Unitrends MSP brand. They are specifically designed to handle use cases requiring much more compute power than traditional appliances. Equipped with up to 300 percent more compute capacity, and up to eight times more memory and built-in, dual 10GB networking ports, these newest members of the Unitrends Recovery Series family are equipped to host failed-over applications, run sandboxes for software testing, and provide high performance backup and recovery.
