Altaro VM Backup now up to 33 times faster

New Change Block Tracking (CBT) completes backups up to 33 times faster.

Altaro Software, a fast growing developer of virtual backup solutions for Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware, today announced the release of Altaro VM Backup v6.5.

With Altaro VM Backup v6.5, incremental backups can be completed up to 33 times quicker thanks to Change Block Tracking (CBT) for Hyper-V Virtual Machines, which reduces backup duration significantly by eliminating the need to scan for changes before each backup, a step that normally takes up most of the incremental backup duration.

“Since day one, our aim has been to improve our product based off our customers’ feedback. CBT was the number one requested feature for the past 6 months, so it was something we simply had to focus on” said David Vella, CEO of Altaro. “This will speed up back up times by up to 33 times, making this an important step for the company.”

“Our aim from day one has been to listen to customer feedback and with v6.5 we’re introducing the most popularly requested feature we received over the past 6 months: CBT” said David Vella, CEO of Altaro. “By drastically increasing the speed of Hyper-V VM backups Altaro VM Backup provides our users with even more value, while still being one of the most affordable backup solutions for Hyper-V and VMware out there.”
