VM Backup (formerly Altaro VM Backup) supports Continuous Data Protection

VM Backup (formerly Altaro VM Backup) users can switch from running daily backups to a continuous data protection (CDP) model, yielding an improved Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of up to 5 minutes.

  • When CDP is enabled, VMs can be backed up as frequently as every 5 minutes or the maximum frequency permitted by the backup location and environment. This ensures that in a data loss scenario only a few minutes of data would be lost.
  • This dramatically reduces the Recovery Point Objective (RPO). RPO is the point in time to which VMs are restored by a backup solution in case of a disaster. With CDP in place, users' RPO is optimized to up to 5 minutes, instead of the hours of data loss faced in cases where users are simply running daily backups.
  • This functionality is available with the Unlimited Plus Edition of VM Backup 7.6 onwards.
