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.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

It's well suited if you want to keep the backup on-premise and you want to utilize the current hardware that you have. It can be used for backup of Office 365 to cloud but it's not SaaS offering, you will need to install Veeam on VM on Azure/AWS and setup local repository and then backup to it, so its a bit more complicated that other offerings plus you pay Veeam only for the backup license, you need to calculate the hardware/cloud cost separately

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.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

  • Deployment - It is very quick and easy to get deployed, with only a few non-technical steps.
  • Speed - The backups are performed extremely quickly which means that our internet bandwidth is not being utilised for long periods of time.
  • Reliability - Backups are always performed on time and to completion.

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.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

  • Deleting users can be tricky. Multiple PowerShell scripts must be run to remove data and license from the platform.
  • When a backup for an object fails there is no clear reason why.
  • No full screen mode that I have found so results windows are hard to read.

It fulfils all of the requirements my company has for a backup solution, and personally I find it the most suitable product I've ever used for backing up mailboxes, due to the ease of restoring items

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.

Very rarely have we even needed support. This is why I only rated a 9, I honestly haven't had to contact support more than once or twice in the entire time I've used the product. In both those instances, they were extremely prompt and professional in helping me solve our issues.

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.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

I compared Veeam to several competitors however I selected Veeam for O365 due to my experience with Veeam Backup & Recovery. I was experienced with Veeam's excellent technical support and its well-designed user interface. Many competitors did not have the large brand-name behind their product and didn't have the level of support I am used to receiving from Veeam.

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

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

  • This was a lateral impact for the most part, since we had previously had backups of the same content on-premises, and we replaced them with this product once we moved to the cloud.
  • There would be potentially greater value to users adopting use of this product without an existing backup system in place.
