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!
Great product! We are using it to backup our Hyper-V servers, and it works perfectly. Fast, reliable, and with an excellent interface!
This is a brilliant product: simple to use and always an excellent response from the support team whenever help is required.
Great Product, we are rolling out to all of our customers. So easy to manage and reliable backups! With great compression and off-site functionality. Provides a great DR solution with the off-site backup options and provides great benefits with storage with up to 75% compression! There is nothing to dislike about this it's great!
Altaro VM Backup is Awesome. The product works exactly as promised and works great. It has been absolutely bulletproof since installation. Download the trial and check it out... you won't be disappointed.
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 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. Read the full review
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. VirtualizationAdmin.com Gold Award.

I suppose the best endorsement of Altaro VM Backup that I can give to you is letting you know that I use the software myself in my development environment.

The management tools make an overall thoughtful and mature impression. Particularly interesting is the remote backup option. (Translated)

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

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.

"The offsite feature of the Altaro backup saved a customer from a very nasty ransomware attack… An employee clicked on an email on a Thursday and by that Friday, the network was suffering from a massive ransomware attack. That weekend, we were able to restore from the Altaro backup (with the help of Altaro's excellent support)..." Read more
"Altaro rocks. What also rocks is all of the Hyper V stuff your folks are posting all the time – I’ve gotten a ton out of your various white papers, etc., and your support is great too. It’s also making my boss happy, because now I’m not babysitting the backups every day."
"I would like to go out of my way to express excellent customer satisfaction and acknowledge outstanding customer service and technical know-how. KUDOS: out of the hundreds of vendors I deal with, you are in the top 5% of excellence."

"The price to performance ratio of Altaro VM Backup is simply unbeatable."
"We’ve recently switched from Veeam to Altaro’s MSP Program, and we are already starting to see and experience the benefits of Altaro over our former Veeam partnership. I can safely say that Altaro will be the go-to solution for DR/BaaS for us and other partners like ourselves."
"One of my Altaro customers was a Hyper V server connected to 10 workstations. The offsite feature of the Altaro backup saved this customer from a very nasty ransomware attack. When we set up the new Hyper V server with Altaro backup we decided that a self-imposed 10GB offsite backup limit was perfect for this customer and his 50GB of data. An employee clicked on an email on a Thursday and by that Friday, the network was suffering from a massive ransomware attack. That weekend, we were able to restore from the Altaro backup (with the help of Altaro's excellent support). We wiped out all 10 workstations to remove any and all infections. This success story is in stark contrast to another where Altaro was not in place but every other precaution was taken and yet, failure and data loss occurred. It doesn't matter what precaution you take - RAID cards, fancy failover clustered servers with the best UPS money can buy - nothing takes the place of a good offsite versioned data backup."
