It gets harder to be an IT pro every day. You face more demands, while headcount and budgets grow at a snail’s pace. The only way to deal with this challenge is to improve your tools and work smarter.

Unitrends and Nutanix each deliver on these goals, and even more so when deployed together.

Nutanix delivers the hyperconverged infrastructure, and Unitrends protects it with all-in-one backup and disaster recovery. Results with joint customers have been excellent, especially when using Nutanix AHV. My favorite quote comes from Walt Lockwood over at BlackLine after protecting his new AHV environment with Unitrends, “Between Unitrends and Nutanix I have two of the most easily managed solutions there must be.”

Here’s why our joint customers are growing so rapidly (and how you can learn more):

The fit is easy

Unitrends can deploy as a Recovery Series hardware appliance outside of the Nutanix infrastructure OR as a Unitrends Backup virtual appliance that deploys and protects within the Nutanix infrastructure. In either case, you don’t have to manage an OS, backup software, security, replication, and orchestration using different servers and vendors. Plus, you get native integration with ANY hypervisor that runs within the Nutanix environment.

Whether you’re starting to standardize on Nutanix AHV, fully standardized, or still thinking about it – all your applications can be recovered with a single solution in Unitrends.

You can work smarter, not harder

Nutanix and Unitrends both deliver a simple interface with automation and orchestration. Nutanix helps you automate workload optimization. Unitrends helps you automate backup, archiving, and DR in a single step based on your business objectives (RPOs and RTOs), proves they can be met, and keeps them secure.

You get MORE value with LESS cost

Nutanix AHV significantly reduces the cost of virtualization by delivering its own enterprise hypervisor. Unitrends announced AHV integration last year. It was launched in early 2018, fully validated as Nutanix Ready, with a fast-follow enhancement to integrate backups of Nutanix AHV into the Unitrends Forever Cloud, a service that is tailor-made for storing backups offsite, but with fast access and less cost than other public clouds.

What you get with Unitrends and Nutanix AHV integration:
  • Short RPOs with incremental forever backups and changed-block tracking
  • Fast, efficient recoveries of files and full VMs
  • Simple scheduling based on SLA policies
  • Secure backups with automated ransomware detection
  • Fast, scalable offsite backups at secondary sites, public clouds, or the Unitrends Forever Cloud
We look forward to continued success between Nutanix and Unitrends, our joint customers and joint channel partners.
