Benefits of Altaro VM Backup

Zero Downtime

Altaro VM Backup eliminates downtime problems while backups are progressing as it uses Microsoft VSS to perform live backups without any disruption to the running virtual machines (VMs) and host. Zero downtime allows you to link up and utilize services hosted in the VMs to do your work from your office, home, or any remote place, without interruptions.

Transfer Data at Needed Speed

With Altaro VM Backup, you can replicate machines to secure them from disasters and crises. The software offers simple yet effective off-site storage and replication tools. You can use the multiple customization choices for backup frequency to transfer data at your desired speed

File Granular Restores

This is another main function of the platform which makes file recovery and access available from any location. Further, you can restore to various hosts and also restore files from several points concurrently. The helpful and engaging Restore features make individual file recovery simple.

Simple Interface

Altaro VM Backup presents an interactive and easy-to-use interface that you can leverage to automate all your backup and recovery processes. Plus, you can effortlessly track different tasks for your Hyper-V and VMware guests. The program’s sophisticated API automation tools help to enhance your reporting.

Swift Backups

Altaro VM Backup can efficiently backup VMs running on Windows, Mac, Unix, and Linux operating systems. You can complete your first Hyper-V backup in just about 15 minutes depending on the available resources and the size of the VMs. Drive swapping is provided as an offsite copy location for both VMware and Hyper-V environments. You have the choice of opting for manual backup or automated backup scheduling.
