Altaro triples revenue in three months, releases V3 of Hyper-V backup

New centralized CSV cluster backup management, a 300% increase in backup performance and backup drive rotation leads the way in affordable Hyper-V backup

Following the successful launch of its Hyper-V backup solution, Altaro a Microsoft BizSpark Partner, today announced the availability of version 3 of Altaro Hyper-V Backup. Version 3 adds centralized CSV cluster management and backup, a 300% increase in backup performance, drive rotation and more.

Built upon Altaro's philosophy of combining performance with unparalleled usability, Hyper-V Backup was developed from the ground up with two main objectives in mind:

The software is fully Hyper-V aware, taking just five minutes to install, configure and does not require knowledge of the inner workings of Hyper-V. This is ideal for small and medium-sized businesses that often do not have large IT support staff.

In addition, by taking advantage of Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) technology, Altaro’s latest offering allows live Linux backups and intelligent backup scheduling when backing up VMs on a CSV with the new Schedule Groups functionality.

"Having exhaustively evaluated Hyper-V backup products the Altaro solution stood head and shoulders above from both a performance and ease of use perspective" commented Julian Shaw, Technical Director at Computerworld Business Solutions, a Microsoft Gold Virtualization Partner. "We have now deployed this solution to a number of our clients from a large school with a cluster to a single server with 2 guest machines and the customer feedback has consistently been excellent."

"We’re extremely happy with the success we’ve seen with our Hyper-V backup solution, it’s been our most successful launch to date and has tripled company revenue literally overnight," said David Vella, CEO at Altaro. "We continue our commitment to providing easy to use Hyper-V backup solutions with our latest offering which packs the features of competing products which cost over double the price".
