Protect your VMware environment easily and cost-effectively, using Altaro VM Backup. Enjoy full control over your VMware virtual machine (VM) backup tasks across all hosts through an intuitive interface, and set your mind at rest thanks to award-winning 24/7 support, making Altaro VM Backup your logical choice for VMware backup.

Uncomplicated, powerful functionality

A backup and replication solution for VMware must provide flexibility and power to give you confidence in your backup strategy. You need to be able to replicate data to an offsite location or a removable drive, to be able to restore individual files or emails, to restore from different points in time, to verify backup integrity, and minimize downtime.

Altaro VmBackup Dashboard

Most importantly, you need a solution you can rely on. Altaro VM Backup meets this need as it:

  • Removes complexities from VMware to enable you to easily manage backups and fast restores
  • Takes care of the complex configurations and enables you to manage and monitor backups across all your VMware hosts in a single view
  • Allows you to drag and drop VMs into a schedule and retention policy
  • Instantly restore an email with just a few clicks
  • Configure automated backup verification for peace of mind
  • Supports multiple cloud storage providers - Through full native integration with MS Azure, Amazon S3 and Wasabi, Altaro VM Backup enables you to easily store backups using the cloud provider of your choice.

Augmented Inline Deduplication – Best deduplication in the industry!

Heavily reduce your storage space requirements with Augmented Inline Deduplication: Altaro VM Backup creates the smallest backup size when compared to other vendors. All backup jobs optionally run Augmented Inline Deduplication and post-processing is never used so you don't need to group similar VMs together for deduplication to run efficiently. This also improves backup and restore speed because there's less data to transfer, saving you storage space and time.

Inline Deduplication Competitors Data
  • Lower storage requirements for VMware backups
  • Less data to transfer results in faster backup and restore speeds
  • Variable block size provides the best efficiency for deduplication
  • Storage savings continue to improve as more VMs are added and backed up
  • Reducing backup size using Augmented Inline Deduplication maximizes server performance.

Fast, reliable backups and restores for VMware VMs

  • Set flexible backup retention policies for individual VMs
  • Restore individual files and emails instantly or recover a full VM, fast – you can restore to a different VMware host, restore an older backup version, restore clones, etc.

    • Back up selected VMs as frequently as every 5 minutes and dramatically improve your Recovery Point Objective (RPO) through Continuous Data Protection (CDP)
    • Archive different backup versions apart from your continuous and daily backups instead of deleting, through Grandfather-Father-Son Archiving (GFS)
