July 31, 2014 - Virtualization Review
Backup and disaster recovery (DR) vendor Unitrends has released a virtual appliance that it says has a unique place in the market as the only virtual appliance that can back up hypervisors from three of the industry's biggest players: VMware Inc., Microsoft and Citrix Systems Inc.
One can think of Unitrends Virtual Backup (UVB) 8.0 as the next version of PHD Virtual Backup. Unitrends announced the acquisition of PHD Virtual Technologies last December, and UVB represents the first fruits of that purchase. UVB 8.0 can perform backup and recovery up to 20 times faster than competing solutions, the company claimed in a press release, while using 66 percent less storage space and sucking down 75 percent fewer resources.
