We have used Altaro, not only internally, BUT also at our customers we support. Altaro is really a good product, and their support (when required) is super friendly and excellent support. It gives us a single pane of glass view for our customers, and give us peace of mind.

We have been using Altaro Backup for all our VMs spread over all departments, setting up a backup with Altaro Backup is very easy and straightforward. It helps us with off-site locations for redundancy on weekends. It helps us to reduce RPO and also RTO with the help of CDP

I used Altaro VM Backup at one of our remote divisions that utilized Windows Server Hyper-VMs. The VMs were hosted on Hyper-V servers, but there was no backup for the VMs themselves, just the files on the VMs were backed up on-site and off-site. I downloaded and installed Altaro's trial to see whether or not their software would be of any benefit.

We use Altaro VM backup to backup one physical host with 5 virtual machines. It is used to backup our entire organization across all of our departments. It addresses the need to have up to date backups of all of our information. We additionally have file-level backups but this allows us to restore an entire machine if necessary.

We needed a quick solution to backup VM in a HyperV environment with many different kinds of VM and operating systems. We started to test a few solutions, and finally, we've found Altaro Hyperv Backup. A solution that was really fast to set up and use that definitively answers the solution.

We use Altaro VM Backup to back up every virtual machine for all departments. We back up to a DAS, and then replicate to another Altaro server at a second location. The backup and process are very simple and quick. We can manage all those backups via the Altaro Cloud feature, sending reports and metrics on the backup, like disk space, deduplication, etc.

  • Altaro VM Backup was chosen as our backup solution for our physical VM host servers to backup the many virtual machines we had. We wanted this solution as the setup was fast and straightforward, and we were backing up within 10 minutes! It also helped that the product was very reasonably priced, and licensing was simple to understand.
  • Restoring is also super comfortable, with various options to restore as a clone for quick testing, restore individual virtual disks, or maybe restore just some files or exchange items. Or failing that, if you don't have time to do a complete restore, boot from the backup. Altaro VM Backup can also be set to test and verify backups, so you know that you have valid backups on hand.
  • The licensing covers either VMware or Hyper-V HyperVisors are making it easy to learn one product and use it across various platforms.
  • Over the years, a constant stream of added features or enhancements has been made to ensure this product is relevant and adding value. Some of the notable improvements/features added have been Data Deduplication, Offsite copies (remote Altaro and now Azure) with WAN acceleration (Altaro server), Constant Data Protection, Cloud management, and many more.

Altaro - Great Value

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.

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.
