About Altaro VM Backup v8

Choose an easy to use and high performance Virtual Backup solution, priced per host (not per Socket or CPU). We make backing up Hyper-V and VMware easy with a straightforward interface and without requiring any complex setups. You can install and take your first backup in under 15 minutes! You'll also experience huge storage savings thanks to our Augmented Inline Deduplication.

We've removed complexities to offer a streamlined solution packed with features to back up and restore your VMs. You can quickly set up a backup schedule, automated test drills and replicate backups offsite for peace of mind. When you need to restore a VM you can opt to restore a whole VM, specific Files or Exchange Items or even instantly boot a VM from the backup location.

Back up unlimited VMs for 30 days. After 30 days you can back up 2 VMs for free, forever.
