Powerful and fast centralised full control & scalability

Managing and configuring backup/restore jobs across multiple hosts has never been simpler.

  • Powerful functionality, easy to use - Offsite backup replication (with WAN acceleration), granular restore options for individual files and Exchange items, automated backup verification, and more!
    • WAN-Optimized Replication - VMs can be replicated to a remote site continuously, dramatically improving the Recovery Time Objective (RTO).
    • Continuous Data Protection (CDP) – VMs can be backed up as frequently as every 5 minutes, ensuring that in a data loss scenario, only a few minutes of data are lost, significantly optimizing the Recovery Point Objective (RPO).
    • Multiple offsite backup locations – Apart from your local backup, store backup copies of your VMs in multiple offsite locations (such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon S3, Wasabi or your own offsite servers) for added peace of mind. More info about a 3-2-1+ backup strategy.
    • Natively supports various cloud storage options - Optionally back up natively to Azure, Amazon S3 and Wasabi.
    • Grandfather-Father-Son Archiving (GFS) - In addition to your continuous and daily backups, you can also archive different backup versions by setting up separate backup cycles to store a new backup version every week, every month and every year.
    • RMM integration - Use the ConnectWise Automate plugin to automatically raise alerts and tickets in your ConnectWise Automate Control Center.
  • Flexibility without the complexities – Simply drag and drop selected VMs to your chosen backup schedules and retention policies.
  • Cloud Management Console – Ground-breaking cloud-based tool to centrally manage and monitor all your Altaro VM Backup installations from a single online console. More info
  • Azure Stack HCI support – at no cost! – Back up any VMs running on Microsoft Azure Stack HCI for free in both production and testing environments. More info
  • 256-bit AES encryption – All Altaro offsite backup copies automatically benefit from 256-bit AES encryption through the secure passphrase you configure upon initial setup. Encryption is optional for local backups.
  • Support for two factor authentication (2FA) in Altaro's online management platform, Cloud Management Console (CMC).
  • Support for ReFS partitions - Back up and restore VMs on/to Hyper-V host with an ReFS partition, in addition to NTFS.
  • Physical server backups - We've developed Altaro Physical Server Backup so you can back up any physical machines on your network and restore them to a virtual environment – and we're providing it for free.
  • GDPR Compliance - Altaro VM Backup can help with your efforts to comply with GDPR.
