Altaro VM Backup comes with advanced capabilities in critical areas of backup such as replication, fast restoration, and management and reporting.

Backup and Replication
Altaro VM Backup offers rapid, efficient, and safe backup for data protection and archiving plus offsite data replication for reliable recovery. Top backup and replication features include:

  • Ransomware Defense via Immutable Cloud Storage: Immutable backup for cloud storage allows tamper-proof data while under the defined policy so that backup data cannot be modified or deleted by anyone including administrators or root users. This provides an extra level of security and restoration ability in case of a ransomware breach.
  • Augmented In-Line Deduplication: In-line variable block size deduplication saves only changed data to backup storage devices or sites, reducing network traffic, minimizing backup storage requirements, and enhancing throughput. Deduplication applies to data on lone virtual machines as well as across many VMs.
  • Continuous Data Protection: Rather than scheduling daily backups, you can reduce backup spacing to as brief as five minutes to minimize your RPO.
  • Concurrent Backups: You can back up many virtual machines at the same time, allowing you to carry out backup processes within shorter off-hour time windows while the most network bandwidth is available and workload throughput is less urgent.
  • Live/Hot Backup: Altaro's integration with Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) permits you to back up virtual machines without going offline.
  • Cluster Shared Volumes and VMware vCenter: The ability to protect VMs within a Hyper-V Failover Cluster (with or without Cluster Shared Volumes) or in a vCenter system allows large-scale implementations.
  • Offsite Replication: To facilitate business recovery, you can set up Altaro's Offsite Server tool on an external server for storing a copy of your backups at a remote location.
  • Flexible Scheduling and Retention Policies: You can set different backup schedules and retention policies for individual VMs.

    Scheduling and retention policies for Altaro VM Backup are simple to set up, review and edit

  • Application Consistent Protection: Altaro VM Backup can use Volume Shadow Copy Service and all VSS Writers running within the target VM when executing a backup. Applications like Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL will be aware the backup has happened and automatically run the relevant maintenance tasks like truncating VLFs.
  • Military-Grade Encryption: Before copying your data to a backup destination, you have the ability to encrypt it with the 256-Bit AES encryption standard.
  • Virtual Disk Exclude: You can specify which Virtual Disks to include or exclude in your VM backups.
  • Grandfather-Father-Son Archiving: Besides your on-going and daily backups, you can implement a special backup schedule to create and archive a new backup copy each week, month and year.
  • Cloud Backup to Microsoft Azure: Altaro VM Backup allows backup to a Microsoft Azure Block Blob storage account, which is the most affordable storage alternative available on the Microsoft Azure cloud.

    Altaro VM Backup allows you to back up VMs hosted on-premises, offsite or in a public cloud

  • Cloud Backup to Amazon S3 and Wasabi: Altaro VM Backup supports native backup to Amazon S3 and Wasabi. No additional resources operating in the cloud are necessary to support backup storage.
  • Back up to multiple remote locations: For improved robustness, you can make copies of VMs on multiple off-premises locations including multiple public clouds like Microsoft Azure and Amazon S3.
Restore and Disaster Recovery
Altaro VM Backup includes a rich toolset for point-in-time recovery of VMs and files that have been backed up on schedule and need to be restored. In a disaster recovery scenario, Altaro VM Backup has utilities for rapidly restoring an entire site from the latest copy stored offsite.
  • Restore as Clone: You can recover a VM backup to a new destination with a new name, allowing the cloned virtual machine to operate alongside the original virtual machine. This eliminates the need to overwrite live virtual machines.
  • Recover to Different Host: You can restore a VM backup to a different host. The VM can be recovered from the local backup location, or directly from the remote copy location. (You may not cross-recover between Windows Hyper-V and VMware Hypervisors.)
  • Boot from Backup: You can instantly boot any virtual machine copy from the backup location either for verification or to create a significant improvement in Recovery Time Objective (RTO) in a disaster recovery scenario.
  • File-Level Recovery: You can rapidly restore specific files from any VM backup.
  • WAN-Optimized Replication: You can create continuous backups of your virtual machines to a remote location and switch immediately to the copy site in the event that a disaster takes out your main virtual machines. This can dramatically improve your Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and get you back online quickly.
  • Exchange Item-Level Restore: You can restore specific emails from the Exchange Mailbox.

    Altaro Virtual Machine Backup permits you to recover individual emails from an Exchange Mailbox database

  • Recover Different Backup Versions: You can recover from different periods instead of being restricted to the last copy.
  • Sandbox Restores and Verification: You can program or run by hand validation tests to assess the accuracy of your backup. You can verify backup folders without connecting the virtual machine to your Hyper-V or VMware host, or you can run a full confirmation restore to a replicant and ensure that the recovered virtual machine can boot.
  • Backup Health Monitor: Backup copy accuracy can be monitored proactively and repaired automatically as a component of the subsequent backup process.
Management and Reporting
Altaro's web-based Cloud Management Console unifies management, monitoring and reporting for Altaro Virtual Machine Backup environments. The Cloud Management Console offers a centralized online portal for tasks like initiating backups, setting up local and off-premises backup locations, defining encryption keys, and restoring virtual machines. The Cloud Management Console also conserves time by allowing you to set custom templates with backup schedules, retention details and other settings and apply them to multiple virtual machines across different hosts. In addition, you can use the Cloud Management Console to observe backup procedures in real time, view historic reports on jobs and problems, and configure the Cloud Management Console to send email alerts for successful or failed processes and other useful information.
