Score 8 out of 10
Currently, we use Altaro in a test environment. The backup solution provided by Altaro - with respect to the VM backup only works phenomenally well for VM backup systems. Their update to connect to Azure cloud storage for off-site backup storage is something that was lacking and is very welcomed as cloud backup is the most reliable way to protect against Ransomware attacks.
- VM Backups - very strog
- Sandbox - system has tools to test restore procedures
- Versioning - ability to choose from numerous backup versions quickly and efficiently
- File backup - currently there is no way to backup/restore any individual files
- Bare Metal - Altaro is great at VM backups, but no bare metal capabilities

Altaro brings value to any organization that has numerous VMs (either Hyper-V or VMWare). It is easy to setup and to maintain. The web portal can be accessible from anywhere giving System Administrators and Backup Operators an easy way manage the backup solution.

It is currently being used by the IT department. We have several VM servers in production, and we have set Altaro to backup the VMs on a nightly basis. Over the weekend, we have it sent to an off-site location for redundancy.

It works great when you have several VM servers to manage and need them to be backed up. It provides statuses and notifications as well.
