Unitrends Lures Buyers With 40% Discount

Those switching from Symantec Backup Exec
Unitrends, Inc. announced a promotion offering up to a 40% discount to organizations switching from Symantec Backup Exec.

The offer stems from the poor customer response to the release of Backup Exec 2012, which dropped support for IBM pSeries/AIX, Solaris, and Novell Netware systems.


The offer ends June 30, 2012.

"Customers are focused on ensuring their data is safe and backed up, regardless of their platform of choice. By continuing to support these systems, Unitrends is reiterating its long-term customer commitment," said Mike Coney, Unitrends president and CEO. "This promotion enables existing and new Backup Exec customers to affordably switch to the industry-leading all-in-one backup appliance. Our innovations, such as our industry-only unified instant recovery that enables VMware and Windows failover virtualization with the same solution, allow customers to protect their data today and far into the future."
