  • On the positive side, Altaro is easy to implement, manage, and maintain.
  • On the "negative" side, I can honestly not think of anything offhand.

  • Restoring our primary ERP VM has already saved many hours of rebuilding from data backups, so that in itself already gave us an excellent ROI for having Altaro running.
  • The quick and easy setup also makes sense for a fast ROI as we didn't need to spend much time or effort in its set up.
  • Lastly, any other restores we have done for retrieving files or testing backups were so simple and easy to do that the process didn't take long and saved us time and cost.
