Altaro VM Backup offers powerful capabilities in crucial areas of data protection such as backup replication, prompt restoration, and centralized management.

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

  • Ransomware Protection leveraging Immutable Cloud Storage: Immutability for cloud object storage allows tamper-proof data for a set duration so that backup data cannot be modified or deleted by anyone including administrators. Immutable storage adds another level of security and recoverability in the event of a ransomware breach.
  • Global Augmented In-Line Deduplication: In-line deduplication saves only changed data to backup devices, conserving bandwidth, cutting storage demands, and enhancing performance. Deduplication works with data on lone virtual machines and across many virtual machines globally.
  • Continuous Data Protection: Rather than performing daily backups, you can reduce backup spacing 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 processes within shorter low-activity time windows while the most bandwidth is open and network performance is less critical.
  • Hot Backup: Integration with Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) permits you to back up virtual machines without requiring downtime.
  • Cluster Shared Volumes and VMware vCenter: The ability to protect VMs within a Hyper-V Failover Cluster (with or without CSV) or within a vCenter environment allows large-scale implementations.
  • Remote Replication: To assist with disaster recovery, you can set up Altaro's Offsite Server tool 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 Consistent Protection: Altaro can use Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service and any VSS Writers running within the protected VM when executing a backup. Applications like Exchange and Microsoft SQL will be aware the backup has happened and automatically proceed with the relevant maintenance jobs like truncating VLFs.
  • Military-Class Encryption: Prior to saving your data to a backup device, you have the ability to encrypt it with the 256-Bit AES encryption standard.
  • Virtual Disk Exclude: You have the ability to select which Virtual Disks to include or exclude in your virtual machine backups.
  • Grandfather-Father-Son Archiving: Besides your on-going and scheduled backups, you can implement a special schedule to make and archive a new backup copy every week, month and year.
  • Cloud Backup to Microsoft Azure: Altaro VM Backup enables backup to a Microsoft Azure Block Blob storage account, which is the lowest priced storage option available on the Azure cloud.

    Altaro VM Backup allows you to back up VMs hosted on-site, remotely 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 needed to provide storage for backup.
  • Back up to multiple off-premises locations: For better robustness, you can create copies of virtual machines on multiple off-premises locations including multiple public clouds like Microsoft Azure and Amazon S3.
Restoration and Disaster Recovery
Altaro VM Backup VM Backup includes a rich set of tools for point-in-time recovery of VMs and data files that have been copied periodically and need to be restored. In the event of a disaster, Altaro VM Backup has tools for quickly restoring a complete site using the most recent replicated version stored offsite.
  • Restore as Clone: You can recover a VM backup to a new location with a new name, permitting the cloned virtual machine to operate side by side with the original VM. This eliminates the necessity to write over active virtual machines.
  • Restore to Different Host: You can recover a virtual machine backup to a new or different host. The VM can be restored from the local backup location, or directly from the remote copy location. (You cannot cross-recover between Hyper-V and VMware Hypervisors.)
  • Boot from Backup: You can immediately boot any VM copy from the backup device either for testing or to create a major reduction in Recovery Time Objective during a disaster recovery scenario.
  • File-Level Restore: You can rapidly recover individual files from any virtual machine copy.
  • WAN-Optimized Replication: You can make ongoing copies of your virtual machines to a remote site and transfer immediately to the backup location in the event that a calamity disables your primary VMs. This can dramatically reduce your Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and get you back online fast.
  • Microsoft Exchange Item-Level Recovery: You can retrieve specific emails and attachments from the Exchange Mailbox.

  • Restore Various Backup Versions: You can recover from different points in time instead of being limited to the latest backup copy.
  • Sandbox Restores and Verification: You can schedule or launch manually test drills to assess the integrity of your backup. You can verify backup folders without connecting the virtual machine to your Hyper-V or VMware Hypervisor, or you can execute a complete test recovery to a replicant and verify that the recovered virtual machine can boot.
  • Backup Health Monitor: Backup storage integrity can be checked proactively and repaired automatically as part of the next backup process.
Management and Reporting
The web-based Cloud Management Console (CMC) centralizes management, monitoring and reporting for Altaro Virtual Machine Backup environments. The CMC offers a centralized online portal for tasks like initiating backups, setting up local and off-premises backup locations, configuring encryption keys, and restoring VMs. The Cloud Management Console also conserves time by permitting you to build specialized templates with schedules, retention details and other settings and apply them to various VMs across a selection of hosts. In addition, you can utilize the CMC to observe backup activities in real time, review historic reports on operations and errors, and configure the Cloud Management Console to send email notices for completed or failed tasks and other important information.
