Great product, great support, great cost per value. Really no complaints. I have used much more expensive software with much less success. I have restored multiple servers, multiple times and never had an issue. An absolute buy for any server administrator. Backing up and restoring servers. Reliable every time.

Excellent product. Not one issue with it. Extremely reliable and dependable. Easy to navigate. Need a solid backup software? Look no further. This took the stress out of my daily responsibilities. You set it up and it just goes. Have not had one failed backup since we integrated it into our system. "Old Faithful" has a new face.... ☺

We have 5 hosts running 30 VMs and have Altaro backing up all of them. v5 is a nice product and we utilize the off-site feature as well. Very cost effective and works like a champ. The free version is an easy way to get familiar with it.

Compared to all the other software out there for Hyper-V VM backups Altaro made a great product companies can afford. It works, it's stable and has saved my butt twice already!

We are backing up Hyper-V and VMware VMs and the overall experience has been fantastic. This software was able to handle granular restores as well as the entire VM backup. Love this product!!

Very easy to setup and use, absolutely off-the-charts deduplication and compression (inline!) second-to-none technical support on the rare occasions it was needed. The cloud management console is the awesome cherry on the cake...

Quick, easy setup process. I had reviewed many options prior to going with Altaro and none even came close. I have had this running in several locations over the years and have never had a problem with backing up or restoring data. We have had to do complete disaster recovery at one of our locations due to a fire and it went so easily that i felt like I missed something when in fact it just went smoothly.

The software is super intuitive and easy to use, very easy to update and manage, and the support that Altaro provides is top notch. You will be hard-pressed to find another company with support like they offer. Anytime you need assistance, you're immediately connected with someone who actually works for Altaro and knows the product.

I actually really like it and find it a lot more simple and intuitive to use than some of the other products out there. All the core features that a good backup server should have are there with a few welcome extras like the cloud integration, boot from backup and a solid customer support experience directly integrated in the console, very nice.

We had a credible configuration in less than fifteen minutes. Complexity of storage estate will naturally increase this, but it's very intuitive to get things working and advanced options can be considered using familiarity, understanding and evolving requirements.

Altaro's software saves time and space and … contains a kind of cross-deduplication, where the same data on multiple VMs is only included once in the backup. This also applies to its real time monitoring.

mkb award

Management of backups goes through one centralized console for both types of VMs... Multiple backups can be performed live simultaneously, which means zero downtime.

I was very impressed by Altaro VM Backup because it is a quick and an easy tool to handle.

Romain Serre Tech-Coffee.net


This tool is a powerful backup solution for a small to medium size business implementation of a Hyper-V based private cloud, and the pricing is right in line, if not below that level. Additionally, Altaro's support department was impressive and their documentation is thorough.

Toby Meyer itToby.com


All in all, Altaro VM Backup is a highly recommended backup solution for Hyper-V environments. (Translated)
