Continous Data protection for Virtual machines.

What do you like best?

In addition to the simplicity of the product, I liked many more features in Altaro; such as, CDP ( Continuous Data Protection) in this feature there is no way to lose you data because your machines will be backed up every 5 minutes !

* Simple installation required, no complexity in any step. Even inside the management console, you can protect your machines by only dragging them to the desired backup schedule.

* I like the detailed dashboarding, I can know the size of every backed up machine and the time taken to be backed up, in addition to duplication percentage.

* RTO is really small, restoring entire machine can take few minutes !!

* Great support and easy to report any issue.

*Off site backup is perfect for disaster recovery.

What do you dislike?

Well, there are many missing points which I wish if they could add them on the road map:

* No physical machines backup ! only virtual.

* Reports can't be downloaded as PDF.

* Not File-level backup, I need to backup the whole machine.

* The destination always be on the host, I wish sometimes to backup one VM to another inside the host.

*Not supported some applications, only SQL and exchange

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it to users who have virtual environment

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backup and disaster recovery. Altaro helps the company to protect their data and reduce the RTO .

The efficiency of Altaro Backup

What do you like best?

I have been using this product for more than three years and from the first moment I realized that it was a valid help in the work of the system administrator. IT Work like a Charm. Fast configuration and central management with is dashboard. This Dashboard let manage all our customers, get up to date the product, create configurations to deploy to the installation. technical support is offered with the utmost professionalism and speed. On those occasions when I needed to address them, the problems have always been solved. Using the wan offsite backup, you can back up multiple customers on the same server and manage everything from a single console. in the last version the continuous data protection has been added which allows to make very frequent backups.

What do you dislike?

This product can't backup a physical server but maybe in future it will be possible and in some situations is not needed. Nothing else to report.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it and you will not change

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I solved problem of backup on hypervisor with VMware and Hyper-V. with a cloud server, you can enable the backup wan so that you also have an encrypted offsite backup. The utility is made available by Altaro at no cost and is equipped with an excellent compression protocol. Which allowed me to make cloud backups also of customers with not very high-performance internet lines.

Flexible Backup solution for VMs

What do you like best?

I really appreciate the ease of use of the solution provided by Altaro. It is very easy to just install the software, or update it and then just set it up under 10 minutes to get your backups rolling. When you first start the sofware it even guides you in the first few crucial steps. The software will ask you to add a licence and then set a backup location and a schedule for all your virtual machines. Once it is done you just need to press "take backup" and wait for the magic to do it's trick.

You also have a lot of choice when it comes to where you want to backup your files. It can be on a local drive, usb drive, network drive. You can set an external backup that could be a drive rotation or even set yourself an offsite server to receive the backups at an other location very easily.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that comes to mind as a deal breaker.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend testing it out with a service provider that can get your a monthly license if you aren't sure and want to give it a solid try. You can always have a few trial as well or even be full free if your needs are small because Altaro does provide a solution for free licensing for 2 VMs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It saves many of my client from accidental deletes or ransomwares.

We're using Altaro VM Backup for our Hyper-V cluster since 2015 and are quite happy with it.

What do you like best?

The product is really ease to use and the user interface shows all of the features in a

very useful way. Over the time Altaro has added many new features but the overall look

and feel keeps the same. So even with a major upgrade you're still familiar with the

features and usage.

What do you dislike?

We hope that we get a germany Version also backup from physical machines would be good if it would be implemented

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With 4 Hyper-V hosts in our cluster Altaro also requires 4 licenses as it is licensed per

host. Using the largest edition "Unlimited Plus" we have a total SRP of 2900,00 EUR

for our cluster which is a very good pricing compared to some other vendors.

Great product for VM backup!

What do you like best?

Simple setup, very easy to use. Backup times are short, and the file level restore is a great tool. Altaro support is also quick and reliable. I have been using this product for years....you get a lot for a minimal cost.

What do you dislike?

Not much negative at all.....if there is a backup error, sometimes the description and error codes are not easy to understand, but support can clarify.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Purchase it and try it out...you will love it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having the piece of mind that our entire VM environment is being backed up locally and offsite is priceless. The file level restore has come in handy a number of times as well, and is a quick and easy process.
