The Altaro Offsite Server is multi-tenant and is designed to allow for multiple users or customers to back up to the same offsite server. Separate user accounts and encryption keys ensure that users only have access to their own backup data.
The AOS supports Altaro’s Augmented Inline Deduplication technology which ensures excellent deduplication ratios on the source data before it is transferred. This reduces offsite copy durations and bandwidth requirements. Deduplication is performed across all virtual machines (VMs) for a customer / user or can also be extended across multiple customer backups if they use the same encryption key.
Having a backup server installed offsite allows for Altaro VM Backup to optimise the way that it transfers VM changes over the WAN connection. This provides very efficient transfer of backup data, ensuring that only new data that has never been transferred before is sent over the network.
You can enable encryption and compression on your VM backups.
The Altaro Offsite Server can be installed on any Windows Server (2012+) machine and is included in the Standard, Unlimited and Unlimited Plus editions of Altaro VM Backup.
Since Altaro Offsite Server can be installed on any Windows Server, it can be deployed to a VM running on Microsoft Azure or another public cloud. This allows MSPs and users to store their offsite copies in a cloud environment.
