The next big upcoming webinar from PHD Virtual is on what is new in Unitrends Enterprise Backup (UEB) 7.4 and ReilableDR 3.4!!!

What’s New and Awesome in ReilableDR 3.4!

There is tons of  new functionality of ReliableDR 3.4:

Certified Recovery - ReliableDR can now orchestrate the Instant Recovery of VMs backed up by Unitrends appliances, apply recovery rules to certify the correct operation of the VMs restored, and certify that the process renders fully operational applications. Backup points that are certified successfully are known as Certified Recovery Points (CRPs). Recovery jobs can be scheduled as often as required, in accordance to compliance or line-of-business requirements.

Recovery Time Actuals and RTO compliance – ReliableDR now measures the time to application availability from an Instant Recovery, and compares it to the RTO in order to ensure compliance with recovery SLAs.

Automated RPO compliance – ReliableDR compares the age of CRPs in the Unitrends appliances against application-level RPOs and raises alerts if the last available CRP becomes stale.

Pushbutton failover – When used with Unitrends replication across sites, ReliableDR provides pushbutton failover automation to instantly recover vSphere applications in a DR site with precision and within the RTO.

Stakeholder Dashboard and Compliance Reporting. - Thanks to ReliableDR’s powerful reporting functionality, stakeholders both within and outside IT can obtain proof that recovery from Unitrends backup is being continuously tested and meeting agreed SLAs. Compliance reporting is available with both real-time and historical SLA measurements, as well as step-by-step traces to satisfy detailed auditing requirements.

Application-centric recovery - Application-specific testing ensures that the recovery is measured across multi-tiered applications and not just individual VM backups, thus ensuring alignment between IT recovery and business process recovery.

What’s New and Awesome in Unitrends Enterprise Backup 7.4

The 7.4 release of Unitrends Enterprise Backup has a whole bunch of cool new features! These will get you excited for sure:

  • Unified Bare Metal™.  Faster backups, faster replication, more retention.  Unitrends invented BMR (Bare Metal Recovery); we have patents pending for our unique Cisco UCS meta-bare metal that we introduced in release 7.3; and now we’re introducing our most significant enhancement to Windows-based BMR in the history of our company as well as now offering hot bare metal support for GPT-based Linux systems.
  • Unitrends Bridge™.  Unitrends Bridge is a 1-click P2V (Physical to Virtual) capability that enables Windows systems to be transformed into virtual machines.  Windows Instant Recovery for UEB, which is now available in release 7.4 for VMware vSphere, is just one use case for this powerful technology.  
  • Release 7.4 Performance Enhancements.  Beyond the incredible performance advantages of Unified Bare Metal and Unitrends Bridge, release 7.4 has a number of other major performance enhancements with respect to backup, retention, replication, and archiving.
  • Oracle 12c Support.  Oracle 12c is now supported. This means that both Oracle 12c and Oracle 11g are supported on Windows, Linux, and Solaris operating systems.
  • Enhanced Linux Distribution Support.  Release 7.4 includes support for CentOS 5.1, CentOS 6.4, CentOS 6.5, Debian 7, Fedora 19, RedHat 5.1, RedHat 6.4, RedHat 6.5, SUS 11 SP3, and Ubuntu 13.1.   In addition, we’ve upgraded several new Linux installers which simplify the agent installation process for most Linux distributions.
  • Enhanced Reporting.  All web-based user interface reports can now be created in Adobe Acrobat PDF format for what-you-see-is-what-you-get viewing, distribution, and printing.
