Unitrends, the leader in affordable, heterogeneous D2D (Disk-to-Disk) and D2D2D (Disk-to-Disk-to-Disk)-based data protection backup appliances, today announced that Release 4.2.1 for its backup appliances now supports BareMetal protection capabilities for pSeries AIX version 5.3 and above. Unitrends backup appliances support more than 100 versions of operating systems and applications, including IBM pSeries/AIX, for truly heterogeneous data protection for small and medium businesses.
Our D2D backup appliances provide a powerful solution for companies that rely on IBM pSeries/AIX and deliver enterprise-class data protection and backup and recovery with an appliance designed from the ground up for small and medium businesses, said Dr. Mark Campbell, chief operating officer, Unitrends. Now, with backup support for AIX BareMetal protection, Unitrends appliances give pSeries users the peace of mind they need knowing that their system can be recovered from the ground up with ease.
For most AIX users, mksysb just isnt enough for reliable backup and data protection. Even through performing a backup with mksysb can create a bootable tape, independent studies show that as much as 70 percent (or more) of tape recoveries fail. With Unitrends D2D backup, AIX users have comprehensive data protection from day to day protection to complete BareMetal restores that is integrated, simple, elegant and truly heterogeneous.
Unitrends appliances supporting D2D backup and recovery for IBM pSeries/AIX 6 and IBM pSeries/AIX 5 are available now. Unitrends also offers a radically simple licensing approach with no client charges or limits for all of its appliances and its exclusive No Limits licensing for its Recovery-7 Series appliances.

Small and medium businesses have the same critical reliance on the integrity of their data as enterprises, but often cant afford the operational expenditure of a dedicated staff or the capital expenditure of replacing their IT infrastructure. Unitrends provides enterprise-level data protection, at the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry, through a family of scalable disk-based data protection appliances that integrate and protect existing heterogeneous computer and storage systems through a single, intuitive, graphical user interface.
Unitrends uses a common backup and recovery engine for providing protection for over 100 different versions of operating systems and applications. This means you can support Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware, Sun Solaris, Novell OES, Novell Netware, Novell GroupWise, Novell eDirectory, Linux, FreeBSD, Apple MacOS X, IBM pSeries/AIX, HP HP-UX, SCO UnixWare, SCO OpenServer, IBM iSeries/OS400, and SGI IRIX on notebooks, PCs, workstations, and servers and on DAS, NAS, or SAN storage.
