The CDP backup feature is very nice, as it allows you to take backups at high frequencies and with application consistency.

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.

The interface is user-friendly and even if our tech isn't onsite, we can work with the owners to confirm that the data will be restored with no issues.

All of the features are fantastic and also the management from Microsoft dealing with multiple machines is great. The whole package is excellent for me.

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.

To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time.

Replication is not fast, the GUI could be more user-friendly, and technical support is lacking in Iran.

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.

The application could include a feature to install a set size of data, such as the ability to store a single application with all its registry information for easy transfer.

If you look into the performance of a virtual machine and you look to the performance of the physical machine, the correlation between these is totally unclear.

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.

The initial set up was complex, and I was not able to do the set up myself.
