Unitrends DRaaS Now Available to Resellers through Tech Data’s Solutions Store

Unitrends DRaaS backup appliance solution, which guarantees full recovery of IT infrastructures in the cloud within hours of a declared disaster, is now available through Tech Data’s TDCloud business unit in the company’s Solution Store.

Tech Data Corporation, a wholesale distributor of technology products, is now offering Unitrends Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to its extensive network of more than 115,000 resellers.

“Our agreement with Tech Data tremendously expands our channel presence by making Unitrends DRaaS available to a vast reseller base,” says Bob Gagnon, Unitrends’ vice president of channel sales. “We are making a best-in-class managed service available for purchase on a subscription basis. And, doing so through Tech Data’s Solutions Store enables us to greatly simplify the ordering process for our IT channel.”

Unitrends DRaaS leverages the company’s backup appliance solution with an automated business continuity offering that guarantees full recovery of entire IT infrastructures in the cloud within hours of a declared disaster. Unitrends DRaaS is available through Tech Data’s TDCloud business unit in the company’s Solutions Store, which is powered by its StreamOne platform, an automated buying, selling, provisioning, and billing system for cloud and subscription-based services technology that scales the business and operational scope. †

Key features of Unitrends DRaaS include:

  • Annual or monthly subscription rates
  • On-premise appliances ranging from 1 terabyte (TB) to 97 TB, or software virtual appliance options for instant recovery of physical and virtual machines
  • Unitrends’ archiving hardware and software capabilities
  • Installation and cloud seeding services
  • No Limits Cloud storage, which provides continuous replication in the cloud up to the limit of the physical appliance or virtual appliance tier
  • DRaaS “white glove” service, which assists customers through a disaster recovery event by helping them spin up infrastructure within hours
  • Disaster recovery assurance through Unitrends’ ReliableDR product for disaster recovery testing, governance, and compliance (available for an additional fee)
  • 24×7 Platinum Support
  • Next business day shipment of replacement appliance in the event of a hardware failure
  • Simple trade-in policy to upgrade to higher storage tiers and appliance replacements

“We’ve been offering Unitrends’ virtual and physical backup and recovery appliances to our reseller partners for almost a year, and the addition of Unitrends DRaaS is a great complement to our existing solutions portfolio,” says Stacy Nethercoat, vice president, Software and TDCloud Services at Tech Data. “Our resellers are now able to offer their end-user customers a complete suite of virtual, physical, and cloud data protection products. This flexibility enables customers to easily and affordably select the right mix of solutions that best accommodates their dynamic IT infrastructures.”
