"The CDP backup feature is very nice, as it allows you to take backups at high frequencies and with application consistency."
"The interface is user-friendly and even if our tech isn't onsite, we can work with the owners to confirm that the data will be restored with no issues."
"It is an excellent product. It is easy to deploy, stable, and fast. Their support is excellent."
"It's not easy to scale it."
"I like the fact that you can recover the VMs inside the appliance. For example, they're basically running this appliance on a Linux-based distribution, and they're spinning off KVM virtual machines inside."
"I really like the reporting options you get for various email reports."
"They have great support."
"When I have had to use tech support, they've been very good."
"Basically, how it works is that you have a single local drive, and then you have a cloud backup. It'd be nice if you could rotate the single local backup drive. As of now, you can't."
"The application could include a feature to install a set size of data, such as the ability to store a single application with all its registry information for easy transfer."
"To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time."
"There's a lot that can be made better. For example, it could be more scalable."
"It seems like Unitrends moved away from enterprise customer engagement and moved more towards the managed service provider market."
"I would like to see more storage options for the free version."
"I would like to see the real-time replication process improved, and a zero RPO feature added."
"Probably the biggest issue I've had is actually paying for the unit, and part of that problem is that they use a third party for the billing."
