Altaro VM Backup Review

Keeps things simple although the time it takes to do a recovery needs to be improved.

Valuable Features:

  • Ease of setup 
  • Ease of recovery of VMs

Room for Improvement:

The recovery speed could be quicker, especially when you only need a file or two.

Use of Solution:

I've been using it for one year.

Deployment Issues:

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues:

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues:

No issues encountered.

Customer Service:


Previous Solutions:

We previously used Symantec. We switched because of the cost as our customers were SMBs, not enterprises. They still need good recovery capabilities and they need it to be reasonably priced. Altaro fits the bill.

Initial Setup:

It's very straightforward to setup, as it is wizard-driven and very simple. It took less than 10 minutes to have it setup and running first backup.


The first recovery typically pays for the investment.

Other Advice:

It is a great lesson in keeping it simple. It just works and you get save much more of your hair.
