Altaro VM Backup comes with advanced capabilities in vital facets of data protection such as replication, fast restoration, and management and reporting.

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

  • Ransomware Defense via Immutable Cloud Storage: Immutability for cloud 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 an extra level of security and restoration ability in case of a ransomware breach.
  • Augmented In-Line Deduplication: Altaro's in-line variable block size deduplication saves only altered data to backup storage devices or sites, conserving bandwidth, minimizing backup storage demands, and enhancing performance. Altaro's deduplication works with data on single virtual machines as well as across multiple VMs globally.
  • Continuous Data Protection (CDP): Instead of performing one-a-day backups, you can reduce backup spacing to as brief as five minutes to minimize your Recovery Point Objective (RPO).
  • Concurrency: You can back up many VMs concurrently, which makes it possible to conduct backup processes within briefer low-activity time windows when the most bandwidth is available and network throughput is less urgent.
  • Hot Backup: Altaro's integration with Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) permits you to back up VMs without incurring downtime.
  • Cluster Shared Volumes and VMware vCenter: The ability to back up VMs within a Windows Hyper-V Failover Cluster (with or without CSV) or in a VMware vCenter environment allows larger deployments.
  • Offsite Replication: To facilitate business recovery, you can deploy the Altaro Offsite Server utility on a remote 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.

    Backup scheduling and retention options for Altaro VM Backup are easy to configure, check and edit

  • Application Consistent Protection: Altaro VM Backup can utilize Volume Shadow Copy Service and any VSS Writers working inside the protected virtual machine when making a backup. Applications including Exchange and Microsoft SQL will sense the backup has taken place and automatically run the appropriate maintenance procedures like truncating virtual log files.
  • Military-Grade Encryption: Before saving your data to a backup device, you have the ability to encrypt it with the 256-Bit AES standard.
  • Virtual Disk Exclude: You can select which Virtual Disks to include or exclude in your virtual machine backups.
  • Grandfather-Father-Son Archiving: Besides your continuous and scheduled backups, you can implement a special schedule to make and archive a backup copy every week, month and year.
  • Cloud Backup to Microsoft Azure: Altaro allows backup to an Azure Block Blob account, which is the lowest priced storage option available on the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Restoration and Disaster Recovery

  • Restore as Clone: You can recover a virtual machine backup to a new location with a new name, allowing the cloned virtual machine to run side by side with the original VM. This avoids the necessity to write over live virtual machines.
  • Recover to Different Host: You can recover a VM backup to a different Hypervisor. The virtual machine can be recovered from the on-prem backup location, or directly from the remote copy location. (You cannot cross-recover between Windows Hyper-V and VMware Hypervisors.)
  • Boot from Backup: You can immediately boot any virtual machine version directly from the backup device for testing or to create a significant improvement in RTO in a disaster recovery scenario.
  • File-Level Restore: You can rapidly restore individual files from any virtual machine copy.
  • WAN-Optimized Replication: You can create ongoing backups of your virtual machines to a different site and switch immediately to the backup site in the event that a calamity takes out your primary virtual machines. This can significantly improve your RTO and get your organization back online quickly.

  • Restore Different Versions: You can recover from multiple points in time instead of being restricted to the last copy.
  • Sandbox Restores and Verification: You can program or run by hand test drills to confirm the integrity of your backup. You can verify backup folders without connecting the virtual machine to your Windows Hyper-V or VMware host, or you can run a full confirmation restore to a replicant and verify that the restored VM can boot.
  • Backup Health Monitor: Backup storage accuracy can be checked proactively and fixed automatically as part of the subsequent backup operation.
Management and Reporting
Altaro's browser-based Cloud Management Console centralizes management, monitoring and reporting for Altaro Virtual Machine Backup deployments. The CMC provides a single portal for processes such as launching backups, establishing on-premises and remote backup sites, configuring encryption keys, and restoring VMs. The CMC also saves time by permitting you to set custom templates with backup schedules, retention details and advanced settings and apply them to multiple virtual machines across a selection of hosts. Also, you can use the Cloud Management Console to observe backup procedures in real time, view historic reports on jobs and problems, and configure the CMC to generate email alerts for successful or failed tasks and other useful information.
