The initial setup was simple and easy. Anyone without prior experience can install, configure, and use it.
The intuitive interface allows you to set up and perform backups and restores easily.
Reverse Delta is Altaro proprietary backup deduplication technology. With Reverse Delta, the latest version of a file is always made available in its entirety, not as a delta file.

We frequently use the granular restore option for when our users accidentally delete files or to recover emails from mailboxes. We have found that to be a must-have feature and it comes with the solution at no extra cost.
We use the latest feature in Altaro called CDP (Continuous Data Protection) to back up our VMs as often as every five minutes. It allows us to make sure no data is accidentally deleted or overwritten.
The ability to test the backups without having to manually mount the VHDs after restore allows us to check the integrity of the backups.

Altaro VM Backup Cons

Availability of physical server backup would be an added advantage.
Migrating the physical through a backup and restore to a virtual environment would be very helpful.

Backup speed and comparisons between versions used to be slow on big VMs but that was improved greatly later on.

The cloud backup and VMware support (now available in the latest releases), could do with some improvement.

It would be nice to see a feature that backs up the host so that, in case of a server failure, an entire server could be restored all at once.

It would be nice to be able to recover the items to their original location.
