Unitrends, a D2D (Disk-to-Disk) and D2D2D (Disk-to-Disk-to-Disk)-based data protection appliances maker, has begun to ship its Recovery-7 Series data protection vault and cross-vault (replication) appliances. The new off-premise data protection appliances support advanced in-flight data deduplication for optimized WAN performance.

“While today’s mid-size organization needs the data protection assurance of rotational archiving, they often can’t afford the costly manual time traditional archiving methods require,” according to Dr. Mark Campbell, chief operating officer at Unitrends. “We have designed our new series of vault and cross-vault appliances to automate the replication process in a way that dramatically reduces operational expense. We’ve matched this powerful technology with a compelling licensing model that eliminates restrictions on storage capacity or clients so that customers have the freedom they need to protect their data without the hidden costs of traditional data protection options.”

Unitrends vaulting solutions are offered for two replication choices: vaulting and cross-vaulting. The Recovery-7 Series vault appliances automatically and seamlessly transfer data from an on-premise to an off-premise location for homogeneous small and medium replicated branch operations. The Recovery-7 Series cross-vault appliances provide a two-way transfer for heterogeneous small and medium branch operations. Both appliances feature advanced in-flight data deduplication to optimize WAN bandwidth between premises.

The on-premise logical appliance of the Unitrends’ Recovery-7 Series Data Protection Cross-Vaults also includes an integrated data protection software suite consisting of Rapid Recovery Console with BareMetal, file, Exchange, and SQL data protection capabilities, as well as advanced compression and AES 256-bit encryption.

The Unitrends Recovery-7 Series Data Protection Vault and Cross-Vault appliances also offer Unitrends’ “Off-Premise No Limits data protection licensing, a simple licensing approach that gives users freedom to store as much on the device as they wish until the physical capacity is full.
