About Altaro VM Backup v7

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. Plus, you get a chance to WIN a $20 Amazon eGift Card and a Grand Prize!

See what 40,000 small and mid-market businesses are saying about Augmented Inline Deduplication

"The first week after upgrading from v6 to v7 I couldn't believe the results on the dashboard, it went so fast that I assumed something was wrong. It wasn't. The improvement in time and data by using the new deduplication method is really tremendous! I've been using Altaro since v4 and this is the best upgrade ever! Thank you, Altaro Team!"

"v7 has made my backup jobs take about a third the time that the previous version took. And being a company that has a fairly slow backup device this helps tremendously."

Altaro is provider of choice for Hyper-V and VMware backup. 40,000 small and mid-market businesses trust Altaro to protect their virtual environments.
