Easy to use with a helpful dashboard, good support, and the deduplication feature saves heavily on storage space
What is our primary use case?
We backup Hyper-V VMs from two hosts with Altaro VM backup. It could not be any easier to back up a VM server than it is with Altaro VM Backup. It is pretty much set it and forget it. We do, of course, monitor our backups, and Altaro makes this very easy as well by using the monitoring software on our office computer. It connects to the software installed on the VM host, lets us know what is going on, and whether there have been any problems with backups or storage, etc. This is a very awesome backup software! Period!
Pros and Cons
"The CDP backup feature is very nice, as it allows you to take backups at high frequencies and with application consistency."
"To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time."
What other advice do I have?
If you have VMs to backup, Altaro is the BEST solution for us and many others alike. I would suggest that you do your homework because everybody's needs are different, and make sure that you test Altaro. You may not need to waste any more time on anything else because it just works!
