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

Pros
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.The product has many valuable features for handling backup needs, including replication, live migration, and incremental disaster recovery.The ease of use of the solution is its most valuable feature. The interface is also excellent.This solution is stable.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.

Cons
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.Replication is not fast, the GUI could be more user-friendly, and technical support is lacking in Iran.The scalability of the solution is limited.The initial set up was complex, and I was not able to do the set up myself.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.

I would like to have the option of creating a subfolder per job in the backup repository because we had an issue where some files were corrupted and we lost the backup of the majority of the VMs.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.​
