We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
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.Excellent compression and deduplication with off-site WAN backup included.Valuable features for us include quick recovery, compression, and deduplication.

Nakivo gives users confidence in knowing that if something happens with their application server, exchange server, or other applications, they can recover it easily and quickly.Perfect for someone who doesn't want to waste time.We spend less time to get data recovered.Creating a backup task in NAKIVO is fast and easy.This solution was surprisingly easy to configure.The ability to restore in a catastrophic event is priceless, since every company must use a backup solution of some sort.We are able to take backups on a regular interval and restore data/VMs as we choose making the process work as advertised.The ability to create a replica of all virtual machines is a great feature.

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.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.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.

We want the backup job to consume fewer resources, as the utilization is very high if we choose the best compression.It is missing the file and folder backup; however, this product is meant for virtual machine backup and recovery, so that is really outside of the scope of the software.An improvement would be to include a general data backup solution that is not only for virtual machines.I think it is important to work not only in replicating the virtual machines in Amazon AWS, but in other cloud systems.An improvement would be to give us more control over the email alerts, with different emails going to different addresses based on a set of rules.The upgrade process is a bit dated and could use some changes.UI could use some upgrades. The UI is basic, but functional.​It would be great if the product could be expanded to support other virtual technologies.

Pricing and Cost Advice
​By implementing the solution at multiple locations, significant cost savings were achieved.Altaro VM Backup is affordably priced. It is a best value for its price and has almost every feature that an expensive, popular product offers.No other product offers these features for this price. The ROI is great.There is a free version for two VMs. I would advise to study the deployment environment well, prior to committing to order a license per host.
