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!

5-star rating

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.

5-star rating

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.... ☺

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.

It is difficult to find a VM backup application that is this easy to use or that gives you as many useful features for the price. I decided to give Altaro VM Backup a score of 4.8 i.e. Gold Award.

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

Romain Serre

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

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