CISCO LIVE! Unitrends, the leading provider of all-in-one backup, archiving, instant recovery and disaster recovery solutions, today announced a significant company expansion in Europe. The announcement comes just weeks after Unitrends reported 2012 as the best year in company history, with 88 percent growth 2012 over 2011. Unitrends has already built a solid international presence, with steady sales and a growing network of customers and partners. The addition of a London-based hub will enable the company to better serve its constituents and advance its European business to match the high-velocity one it has created in the U.S.
"Our strategy for success in Europe is to follow the same, three-pronged approach that has propelled us to explosive growth in the U.S.," said Mike Coney, CEO of Unitrends. "This foundation consists of offering advanced technology that protects data across physical, virtual and cloud environments, providing customers with unrivaled support and service, and driving the company with strong leadership."
Unitrends' strong portfolio of all-one-one backup and recovery solutions is available in international markets, including the Recovery Series of physical appliances that support up to 97 TB of raw capacity, as well as Unitrends Enterprise Backup, its software-only virtual appliance. With a focus on providing unified data protection across heterogeneous environments at the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry, Unitrends is continually investing in product development to help companies seamlessly protect data on-premise, on virtual machines and in the cloud. For example, last year, Unitrends became the first vendor to support Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V and VMware vSphere 5.1, and, in Q4, the company announced Unitrends Release 7.0, the next generation of software powering its physical and virtual appliances.
"In most cases, our customers' infrastructures are and will remain a hybrid of physical and virtual servers," said Carl Dipane, technical director at CD-DataHouse, one of a growing number of Unitrends' distribution partners in the UK. "As they discover Unitrends, they realize that deploying different backup solutions for virtual, physical and cloud environments is neither economical nor practical. As a result, they are jumping ship from their existing backup technology providers and turning to Unitrends' all-in-one solutions that protect data across heterogeneous environments. Unitrends delivers advanced technology with Seamless simplicity and at a price point that SMBs can afford. As the company expands further into Europe, we will certainly do our part to help a growing local audience learn of the many benefits Unitrends provides."
