Altaro VM Backup v7

Altaro VM Backup is an affordable backup solution for Hyper-V and VMware VMs priced per host and not per socket or CPU.  This cost-effective solution is super easy to use with a straightforward interface and simple wizard setup process. The software solution comes packed with features to back up VMs including flexible scheduling, data integrity checks, automated test drills and more.

Thanks to Augmented Inline Deduplication Altaro VM Backup can offer faster backup speeds as there is much fewer data to transfer! Altaro uses inline deduplication to reduce storage requirements among all VMs being backed up to the same backup location. On average Altaro customers save 65% in backup storage!

Altaro VM Backup has fast restore options to recovery quickly. A whole VM can be restored to a new host, as a clone or opting to restore specific Files or Exchange Items directly from the backup. Boot VM from backup is another option where it allows to instantly boot a failed VM directly from the backup location while the VM is being restored in the background, including all changes done to the booted VM.

For offsite backup strategies, backups can be replicated to an offsite location using the Altaro Offsite Server, a NAS, drive rotation or RDX cartridges.

Altaro VM Backup also provides a solution for Managed Service Providers where all backups can be monitored and managed from one single online dashboard. This groundbreaking backup solution is subscription based where MSPs can pay per VM per month with very low monthly commitments.


Founded in 2009, our company has grown rapidly over the years and continues to do so with our flagship solution Altaro VM Backup, which is rapidly gaining traction as the natural choice for Hyper-V and VMware VM backups.

Altaro VM Backup was born out of a need which we faced ourselves in the early days of Altaro. Backing up and restoring VMs was a needlessly complicated process without the use of a 3rd party tool, while existing backup solutions were expensive, still complicated to configure and use and let us down in times of trouble.

We decided we could do better. Over 30,000 votes of confidence (and raving reviews) from customers confirms we were on to something.
