The daily reports that showed Red, Green, Yellow status for each asset/server/database protected.  Simple and easy to use for daily logging, providing assurance all was well.  The main dashboard screen contained a wealth of useful concise information: protect/unprotected, replication stats, current jobs running.

Unitrends really has cross-compatibility and a broad area of support for various operating system backups. 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. The customer has downtime to his advantage. He can absolutely spin-off some VMs from inside the backup appliance itself to start production or close instantly or as soon as possible.

Unitrends has a unique point in deduplication because it has global deduplication, and it can help make backup sizes much smaller than the software they're using. Because it deduplicates from a storage area and has a feature to recover a VM inside the appliance.

Their technical support is also good. It's actually one of the selling points, and we show the customer that their support is reliable.

I like that the installer file was easy to download from their website and easy to install for Hyper-V appliances. 

I really like the reporting options you get for various email reports. I look forward to looking at those each day, which gives me a great overview of the current status of the whole Unitends Backup system.

The website's graphical user interface is well-thought-out and has been tweaked to be more friendly and nicer looking in the last year or so.

The updates are fairly frequent, so I'm happy they continue to improve everything.

It's a good solution. When we talk about a backup point of view, from a backup perspective, it's a good one. 

One good thing with them is the pricing.
