Augmented Inline Deduplication – Best deduplication in the industry!

Heavily reduce your storage space requirements with Augmented Inline Deduplication! Altaro VM Backup creates the smallest backup size when compared to other vendors. All backup jobs optionally run Augmented Inline Deduplication and post-processing is never used so you don’t need to group similar VMs together for deduplication to run efficiently. In the process, having less data to transfer improves backup and restore speed, saving you storage space and time!

  • Lower storage requirements for VMware backups
  • Less data to transfer results in having faster backup and restore speeds
  • Variable Block Size provides the best efficiency for deduplication
  • Storage savings will continue to improve as more VMs are being backed up and added!
  • Reducing backup size using Augmented Inline Deduplication doesn’t tax on server performance.
