Unitrends launches VM backup solution for VMware admin

26 Apr 18

Unitrends, the enterprise backup and continuity solution provider, has released a new solution targeted at VMware administrators - VM Backup Essentials (vBE).

vBE converges enterprise-grade virtual backup software, ransomware detection, and fully integrated cloud storage options into a product with competitive pricing.

The solution aims to be fit for the enterprise but simplified and priced specifically for the VMware Admin, focusing on protecting the modern, highly virtualised data centre against the latest downtime threats, including ransomware.

“The announcement of vBE is a significant milestone, as we prove to the market and our competitors that we are taking a comprehensive and innovative approach to solving the needs of VMware Admins,” says Unitrends CEO Paul Brady.

“Unitrends is deeply committed to bringing its award-winning enterprise technology and customer support to these VMware-focused customers and partners.”

“Our reseller partners are thrilled about vBE,” says Lifeboat Distribution vice president and general manager Brian Gilbertson.

“Other products in the space are shifting their focus away from core VM backup capabilities. They are driving prices up and making it difficult to serve highly virtualized system administrators. vBE helps them solve key VM backup problems for their customers in a competitive and unique way.”  

Administrators are able to download, deploy, and start backing up all VMware workloads as vBE includes everything required for data and application protection.

vBE retails for $105 per socket with 24x7 US-based support and free Not-For-Resale (NFR) licenses are also available for VMware certified IT pros.

Additional products in this series will be released later this quarter, offering features such as support for complete disaster recovery orchestration, copy data management, and analytics that will predict the impact of an outage before it happens.
