Altaro VM Backup offers powerful capabilities in crucial facets of data protection such as replication, fast recovery, and management and reporting.

Backup and Replication
Altaro VM Backup offers rapid, efficient, and secure backup for data protection and archiving plus remote data replication for dependable restoration. Top backup and replication capabilities include:

  • Ransomware Defense via Immutable Cloud Storage: Immutability for cloud object storage allows tamper-proof data while under the defined policy so that backup data cannot be erased or modified by anyone including root users. Immutable storage provides an extra level of protection and restoration ability in case of a ransomware breach.
  • Augmented In-Line Deduplication: Altaro's in-line deduplication saves only changed data to backup storage devices or sites, conserving bandwidth, minimizing backup storage requirements, and enhancing performance. Deduplication applies to data on lone virtual machines and across many VMs.
  • Continuous Data Protection (CDP): Rather than performing one-a-day backups, you can reduce backup intervals to as brief as five minutes to lower your Recovery Point Objective.
  • Concurrent Backups: You can back up multiple virtual machines simultaneously, which makes it possible to conduct backup operations during shorter low-activity time windows while more network bandwidth is open and workload throughput is less urgent.
  • Live/Hot Backup: Integration with Volume Shadow Copy Service permits you to back up virtual machines without going offline.
  • Cluster Shared Volumes and VMware vCenter: The ability to back up VMs within a Windows Hyper-V Failover Cluster (with or without CSV) or within a vCenter environment supports large-scale implementations.
  • Remote Replication: To assist with disaster recovery, you can deploy Altaro's Offsite Server utility on an external server for storing a copy of your backups at a different site.
  • Flexible Scheduling and Retention Policies: You can set different backup schedules and retention policies for individual VMs.

  • Workload Specific Protection: Altaro VM Backup can utilize Volume Shadow Copy Service and any VSS Writers working inside the protected VM when making a backup. Apps including Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL will be aware the backup has happened and automatically run the appropriate maintenance procedures like truncating transaction logs.
  • Military-Grade Encryption: Prior to saving your data to a backup destination, you have the ability to encrypt it using the 256-Bit AES standard.
  • Virtual Disk Exclude: You can select which Virtual Disks to include or ignore in your virtual machine backups.
  • Grandfather-Father-Son Archiving (GFS): Besides your continuous and daily backups, you can set up a special backup schedule to create and archive a backup copy every week, month and year.
  • Cloud Backup to Microsoft Azure: Altaro VM Backup supports backup to a Microsoft Azure Block Blob storage account, which is the most affordable storage option available on the Microsoft Azure cloud.

    Altaro Virtual Machine Backup allows you to back up virtual machines hosted on-site, remotely or in a public cloud

  • Cloud Backup to Amazon S3 and Wasabi: Altaro VM Backup VM Backup supports native backup to Amazon S3 and Wasabi. No additional resources running in the cloud are necessary to support backup storage.
  • Back up to multiple offsite locations: For better resilience, you can make copies of VMs on multiple remote sites including multiple clouds like Azure and Amazon S3.
Restoration and Disaster Recovery
Altaro VM Backup offers a comprehensive set of tools for granular point-in-time recovery of VMs and files that have been backed up periodically and need to be restored. In a disaster recovery scenario, Altaro VM Backup has utilities for quickly restoring an entire site using the latest copy protected on a safe remote site.
  • Recover as Clone: You can recover a virtual machine backup to a new location with a new name, permitting the cloned VM to operate side by side with the original virtual machine. This eliminates the necessity to overwrite live virtual machines.
  • Restore to Different Host: You can recover a virtual machine backup to a different Hypervisor. The VM can be restored from the on-prem backup location, or directly from the offsite copy location. (You may not cross-restore between Hyper-V and VMware Hypervisors.)
  • Boot from Backup: You can instantly boot any VM version from the backup device for testing or to create a significant improvement in RTO in a disaster recovery scenario.
  • File-Level Restore: You can quickly restore specific files and folders from any virtual machine copy.
  • WAN-Optimized Replication: You can create ongoing copies of your VMs to a remote site and transfer immediately to the backup location in case a calamity disables your main VMs. This can dramatically reduce your RTO and get your organization back online fast.
  • Exchange Item-Level Recovery: You can recover specific emails from within the Exchange Mailbox database.

  • Recover Various Backup Versions: You can restore from multiple periods rather than being limited to the latest backup copy.
  • Sandbox Restores and Testing: This feature lets you schedule or run by hand test drills to assess the integrity of your backup. You can verify backup folders without connecting the VM to your Hyper-V or VMware host, or you can execute a full test recovery to a clone and verify that the recovered VM can boot.
  • Backup Health Monitor: Backup storage accuracy can be checked on demand and repaired automatically as part of the subsequent backup operation.
Management and Reporting
The browser-based Cloud Management Console centralizes management, monitoring and reporting for Altaro VM Backup deployments. The Cloud Management Console offers a centralized portal for tasks such as launching backups, establishing on-premises and remote backup locations, defining encryption keys, and recovering virtual machines. The Cloud Management Console also saves time by permitting you to set specialized templates with schedules, retention policies and advanced settings and apply them to various VMs across a selection of hosts. In addition, you can utilize the Cloud Management Console to monitor backup activities in real time, view historic reports on operations and errors, and program the CMC to send email alerts for successful or failed tasks and other important information.
