Altaro VM Backup offers powerful capabilities in crucial facets of backup such as backup replication, prompt restoration, and management and reporting.

Backup and Replication
Altaro VM Backup delivers fast, efficient, and secure backup for data protection plus remote data replication for dependable restoration. Major backup and replication capabilities include:

  • Ransomware Defense leveraging Immutable Cloud Storage: Immutable backup 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. This provides another level of security and recoverability in the event of a ransomware breach.
  • Augmented In-Line Deduplication: Altaro's in-line variable block size deduplication sends only altered data to backup devices, conserving bandwidth, cutting backup storage demands, and enhancing throughput. Deduplication works with data on single virtual machines and on multiple VMs.
  • Continuous Data Protection: Rather than scheduling one-a-day backups, you can schedule backup intervals to as brief as five minutes to lower your RPO.
  • Concurrent Backups: You can back up multiple virtual machines at the same time, allowing you to conduct backup operations during shorter off-hour time windows when the most bandwidth is open and network throughput is less critical.
  • Hot Backup: Integration with Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) permits you to back up virtual machines without incurring downtime.
  • Cluster Shared Volumes and VMware vCenter: The ability to protect VMs within a Windows Hyper-V Failover Cluster (with or without Cluster Shared Volumes) or in a VMware vCenter environment supports larger deployments.
  • Remote Replication: To facilitate disaster recovery, you can deploy Altaro's Offsite Server tool on a remote server for keeping a copy of your backups at a different location.
  • Flexible Scheduling and Retention Policies: You can set different backup schedules and retention policies for individual VMs.

    Scheduling and retention options for Altaro are simple to set up, review and edit

  • Application Specific Backups: Altaro can use Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and any VSS Writers running within the protected virtual machine when executing a backup. Apps such as Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL will sense the backup has taken place and automatically run the appropriate maintenance jobs like truncating virtual log files.
  • Military-Grade Encryption: Before saving data to a backup destination, you have the option of encrypting it with the AES-256 standard.
  • Virtual Disk Exclusion: You can select which Virtual Disks to include or exclude in your VM backups.
  • Grandfather-Father-Son Archiving (GFS): Besides your on-going and scheduled backups, you can implement an additional schedule to create and archive a backup version every week, month and year.
  • Cloud Backup to Microsoft Azure: Altaro VM Backup supports backup to a Microsoft Azure Block Blob account, which is the least expensive storage alternative available on the Azure cloud.

    Altaro Virtual Machine Backup permits you to back up virtual machines hosted on-premises, offsite or in the cloud

  • Cloud Backup to Amazon S3 and Wasabi: Altaro VM Backup VM Backup supports native backup to Amazon S3 and Wasabi. No additional resources operating in the cloud are required to support backup storage.
  • Back up to multiple off-premises locations: For improved robustness, you can create copies of VMs on multiple remote locations including multiple public clouds such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon S3.
Restoration and Disaster Recovery
Altaro VM Backup offers a rich set of tools for granular point-in-time recovery of virtual machines and files that have been copied periodically and need to be restored. In a disaster recovery scenario, Altaro VM Backup has utilities for quickly recovering a complete site using the most recent copy stored offsite.
  • Restore as Clone: You can restore a virtual machine backup to a new location with a new name, permitting the cloned virtual machine to operate side by side with the original virtual machine. This avoids the necessity to write over active virtual machines.
  • Recover to Different Host: You can recover a virtual machine backup to a new or different host. The virtual machine can be restored from the local backup location, or directly from the offsite copy location. (You cannot cross-restore between Hyper-V and VMware Hypervisors.)
  • Boot from Backup: You can instantly boot any VM copy from the backup device for testing purposes or to achieve a significant improvement in Recovery Time Objective during a disaster recovery scenario.
  • File-Level Recovery: You can quickly recover specific files from any virtual machine copy.
  • WAN-Optimized Replication: You can create ongoing copies of your virtual machines to a remote site and switch instantly to the copy location in the event that a disaster takes out your main virtual machines. This can significantly shrink your Recovery Time Objective and put you back online quickly.
  • Exchange Item-Level Restore: You can restore specific emails and attachments from the Exchange Mailbox.

  • Recover Different Versions: You can restore from multiple points in time rather than being limited to the last copy.
  • Sandbox Restores and Testing: You can program or run by hand validation tests to confirm the accuracy of your backup data. You can verify backup folders without attaching the virtual machine to your Windows Hyper-V or VMware Hypervisor, or you can execute a full confirmation recovery to a replicant and verify that the recovered VM is able to boot.
  • Backup Health Monitor: Backup copy integrity can be checked on demand and repaired automatically as a component of the subsequent backup operation.
Management and Reporting
Altaro's browser-based Cloud Management Console (CMC) centralizes management, monitoring and reporting for Altaro Virtual Machine Backup deployments. The CMC provides a single online portal for tasks like launching backups, setting up on-premises and off-premises backup locations, defining encryption keys, and restoring VMs. The Cloud Management Console also saves time by permitting you to build specialized templates with schedules, retention policies and other settings and assign them to multiple virtual machines across a selection of hosts. Also, you can utilize the CMC to observe backup activities in real time, view historic reports on jobs and errors, and program the Cloud Management Console to generate email alerts for completed or failed processes and other important information.
