Our aim is to delight our customers with full-featured, affordable backup software backed by an outstanding, personal Support team who are determined to help you succeed in protecting your environment.
Founded in 2009, our company has grown rapidly over the years and continues to do so with our flagship solution Altaro VM Backup, which is rapidly gaining traction as the natural choice for Hyper-V and VMware VM backups.
Altaro VM Backup was born out of a need which we faced ourselves in the early days of Altaro. Backing up and restoring VMs was a needlessly complicated process without the use of a 3rd party tool, while existing backup solutions were expensive, still complicated to configure and use and let us down in times of trouble.
We decided we could do better. Over 40,000 votes of confidence (and raving reviews) from customers confirms we were on to something.
We're proud of the fact that thousands of customers and Partners worldwide chose to rely on Altaro, being excited by our fresh take on backup software, by their experiences with our Support team and by the number of times our software already saved their behinds. Don't take our word for it - Check out our testimonials and see for yourself the genuine feedback we get on a daily basis.
Altaro’s Partner Program will help you make your IT reselling business more successful, plus you can benefit from discount margins, priority support, product training and more. All this is complimentary, and no commitment is required from your end.I want to partner with Altaro
