Mark Haranas

CRN breaks down the 11 market leaders, including Commvault, Dell Technologies, Rubrik and Veeam, who made Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions.

Niche Player: Unitrends

Unitrends, a Kaseya company, ranks last for both execution and vision on the Magic Quadrant. Unitrends data center backup portfolio includes Unitrends Backup Software, Recovery Series Backup Appliance, and Spanning Backup for Office 365. The company’s Recovery Series MAX Appliance is offered in six configurations that address various requirements of SMB and midmarket customers. This year, Ireland-based Unitrends launched Helix, a SaaS-based management platform that centrally manages software updates for backup appliances and monitors backup failures in Windows environments.

Strength: Unitrends Forever Cloud program supports long-term retention of data beyond seven years in Unitrends’ managed cloud infrastructure with no egress charges and with options for performing regular recovery testing in the cloud.

Weakness: The company’s support for backup of Oracle Database and SAP HANA databases is not granular or comprehensive. Additionally, Unitrends backup instance doesn’t integrate with native snapshot capabilities from AWS and Azure.
