Unitrends, Like a Phoenix
I hadn't heard from Unitrends for awhile and was delighted when Jim Caro, SVP of Corporate Development & Global Alliances, contacted me to arrange for a briefing. I was even more delighted to hear that I would be talking to Unitrends' CTO, Mark Campbell.
These guys went quiet for awhile and I was afraid that we had heard the last of them. But, after some management changes, they seem to be returning to their roots, and working to create a unified data protection solution that provides a robust feature set for protecting physical and virtual environments, leveraging all backup targets from disk to tape to "clouds," and integrating archive functionality into their suite of data management/data protection tools.
You may not see them in big enterprise shops...yet. But, chances are that smaller and medium-sized firms have used their appliance or software products for years. They just aren't as noisy as the Three Letter vendors.
Again, good luck, Unitrends. We are looking forward to giving your latest wares a test when they are formally announced in June.
New logo, enhanced product, worth a look.
