Altaro VM Backup functionality includes:
• Augmented Inline Deduplication - best storage savings in the industry: Augmented Inline Deduplication means that common data is only transferred to the backup or offsite location ONCE. This process happens inline and not as a post-process like most competitors, which ensures that only changed data gets sent to your backup repository from the get go (rather than removing the identical data after the transfer). The result: Superior efficiency, drastically reduced backup storage requirements and blazing fast backup speeds.

• Cloud backup to Microsoft Azure: Altaro VM Backup supports Microsoft Azure Cloud Storage Accounts, meaning users can simply enter their account details and store their offsite backup copies in Azure. This way, you can easily make a backup copy of your data direct to Azure, as well as to a local disk, network path or an Altaro Offsite Server.

• Continuous Data Protection (CDP): Continuous Data Protection (CDP) allows Altaro VM Backup users to back up virtual machines (VMs) as frequently as every 5 minutes ensuring that, should a data loss scenario occur, only a few minutes of data are lost. This significantly reduces the Recovery Point Objective (RPO). RPO is the point in time that VMs are restored to by a backup solution in case of a disaster. With CDP in place, users’ RPO is optimized to up to 5 minutes, instead of the hours of data loss faced in cases where users are simply running daily backups. This dramatic reduction in data loss saves companies time and money while minimalizing hassle.

• Multi-tenant management: Altaro’s Cloud Management Console (CMC) is a web-based, multi-tenant management tool for Altaro VM Backup that enables IT departments, end users, IT Resellers and MSPs to manage and monitor all their Altaro installations from a single pane of glass. Get one centralized view via this online console, making life easy and hassle-free.

• WAN-Optimized Replication: Replication enables users to be back up and running in minimal time should disaster strike. Optimized for WANs, Altaro's WAN-Optimized Replication enables system administrators to replicate ongoing changes on their virtual machines (VMs) to a remote site and to seamlessly continue working from the replicated VMs should something go wrong with the live VMs, such as damage due to severe weather conditions, flooding, ransomware, viruses, server crashes and so on. Replication permits the user to make an ongoing copy of its virtual machines (VMs) and to access that copy with immediacy should anything go wrong with the live VMs. This dramatically reduces the recovery time objective (RTO).
