Altaro VM Backup

While I am not an IT professional, I can get around and do a lot of things. For a novice user like myself, the UI is fairly straightforward and easy to set-up and manage. If I was delving into more detailed backups and replication (not currently using) I still believe that a novice user like myself would be able to manage. Pricing based on host and not VMs is attractive for the end-user. If you had your VMs stored on a number of different hosts, it could get pricey.

We fully recommend this application since it has saved us on affinities of occasions during recoveries. It is an ideal tool for backing up emails, documents and multimedia files. It is an appropriate option for companies that have a constant movement of equipment. It can be used as the main backup tool in the cloud

Pros

Altaro VM Backup

  • Fast and simple setup. I didn't need to read through ANY documentation to set up and have a backup running.
  • Easy and cost-effective licensing. I didn't need to count CPU's or VM's or other random facts to work out my licensing. Just how many hosts, and then one of 3 feature levels of which two have unlimited VM licensing. Hosts x Feature Set = Cost.
  • Easy Restores. Backing up is one thing, but restoring and having confidence in the restore is another. It just works, simple and effective.
  • Help is easy to find if you need it. From within the app, it gives you options of email, phone, and live chat, which is usually available even with odd time zones in play.

  • Cloud storage - no on-prem storage necessary.
  • Unlimited backups - can backup as frequently as 15 minutes to daily backups.
  • Intuitive administrative console allows for mandatory folders to be backed up and blacklist certain extensions from the backup (such as .ISOs).
  • Secure, fast, and very easy to roll out.

Cons

Altaro VM Backup

  • Single file restore is not included in the 2 VM free edition.
  • Can't restore a single SQL database, you have to restore the entire VM.

  • The main area they could use improvement on is the client on your local computer. There were a few times it would stop working and I would need to contact customer support to get it working again. Those scenarios have been fewer as of this year so they hopefully have things sorted out by now.
  • The version control system does exist, but it is kind of hard to access so they could improve how you access it and how it works.

Druva is the only tool has vast options to protect all kind of end user data. InSync setup is not only easy to set which also manage. Cost effective as compared to other data protection applications. as they are already in AWS cloud it is not burning our pocket incase of increase in data size or device size. Best support from the technical team

I have recommended this product to both Microsoft employees and Dataprise employees, so their clients can have the piece of mind that Druva brings me. They all agree that Microsoft's site restoration process is difficult at best, and the ease of restoration with Druva is of great value.

The chat is very responsive. They work hard to find you a solution. They are very competent and very friendly. Most of the time they will simply open a request for you and ask to send the support package (bunch of logs and files) and will come back by email, but you can also click on the chat button inside Altaro to talk to someone.

Most issues I have can be solved without opening a ticket. But if I need to get in touch with a support agent, I can open a chat request and within minutes have a tech on the end assisting me. The few tickets I had to open were resolved on the first call.

In consultation with a Druva support person we configured a few policies first for several groups of users. Once that was done it was easy to add users and generate emails that contained links and instructions to download/install the app. Once installed, the app applied the appropriate policy and the sync of data began. We had 40 or so devices to protect, and in a week or less they were all protected. The delays usually were on the part of the user who needed to schedule some time (15-30 minutes at most) to accept the invitation and download/install the app.

Alternatives Considered

Altaro VM Backup

Altaro brings value to organizations looking at other platforms. It's definitely less expensive overall than Veeam, Datto or Infrascale. The recovery solution for Altaro is very good and reliable. Any organization looking at Veeam should consider Altaro as a potential alternative - depending on requirements. Although lacking in some granular backup/recovery systems, organizations looking at the backup of VMs only - numerous VMs with an off-site cloud location already setup. Costs can potentially increase if numerous versions or long deletion policy needs to be maintained. However such costs would increase on Veeam as well. Solarwinds and Carbonite charge based on selected sizes while Asigra has an amazing deduplication system for VMs, however, Asigra can become pricey with longer deletion/versioning setups as well.

We use Veeam to back up our virtual server infrastructure so naturally looked to Veeam when we wanted to backup Office365. The key difference here was the price. Veeam was several times more expensive than the Druva inSync and appeared to be a lot more complex and time-hungry to manage.

Return on Investment

Altaro VM Backup

  • We have a reliable backup solution.
  • I always know if/when a job fails.
  • Any time I have had to restore a backup, it was a straight-forward process.
Jarret Schwartz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Druva inSync

  • We have had multiple cases of data being lost while syncing from iPads to OneDrive in areas with limited mobile connectivity that would have required extra visits to sites, including international travel. The backup service paid for its first 3 years of usage within the first 6 weeks.
