BURLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Unitrends, the global leader of all-in-one enterprise backup and continuity solutions, today announced a significant update to the company's Recovery Series backup appliances and Unitrends Backup virtual appliances with hypervisor integration for Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV). This key integration between technology partners will enable enterprise customers to reduce infrastructure costs with Nutanix's free Acropolis hypervisor, while maintaining critical continuity and data availability requirements from integrated backup and disaster recovery services.
"Both Unitrends and Nutanix enable enterprise IT to be simpler and smarter by reducing vendor complexity when delivering and protecting enterprise applications," said Paul Brady, CEO of Unitrends. "Our joint customers running 3rd party hypervisors on Nutanix are looking for new ways to increase the ROI of their infrastructure, and have told us Acropolis is a great way to do that by eliminating the high cost of VMware licensing. Without proper backup, data management, and enterprise cloud continuity in place, customers could never make that ROI a reality."
On the heels of being named to two Gartner Magic Quadrants for the second year in a row, Unitrends will extend its core data center backup and recovery capabilities for Nutanix to the purpose-built Unitrends Cloud. The Unitrends Cloud provides a comprehensive set of continuity services that fill key gaps enterprises face with hyperscale clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS), such as recovery Service Level Agreements (SLAs), failover scalability, and cost-effective compliance for DR testing and long-term retention.
"The addition of Nutanix AHV integration bolsters our budding relationship with Unitrends," said Phil Abeyta, President, Ardham Technologies, Inc. "We deliver cutting edge technology services to customers looking to get the most out of their IT assets. As customers continue to adopt hyper-converged infrastructure like Nutanix, we now have a simple and complete continuity solution across all flavors of Nutanix implementations using Unitrends."
