Trying to find a backup solution for Hyper-V and VMware you can rely on is a real challenge. You risk spending a huge chunk of your budget on software that is bloated with features you don’t need, that is hard to manage and lacks the support levels you expect.

We believe in solid backup software that does what it says it will, is intuitive and easy to use, well-priced and offers outstanding support as part of the package. Altaro VM Backup is a full-featured, affordable backup solution for Hyper-V and VMware virtual machines backed up by a support team that is determined to help you succeed in protecting your environment.


Altaro VM Backup provides inline deduplication technology that significantly speeds up backups and reduces storage requirement PLUS Boot from Backup which makes it possible to boot any VM version from the backup location instantly without affecting its integrity and much more.

The latest version supports Hyper-V hosts running Windows Server 2016 and features many innovations that make it lighter, run faster and deliver better performance for small to medium-sized businesses. It’s easy and fast to set up a solid backup strategy for your organisation. 

Augmented Inline Deduplication of backups across VMs: drastically reduce backup storage requirements on both local and offsite locations, and therefore significantly speed up backups.

Boot from backup: Instantly boot any VM version from the backup location without affecting backup integrity. The VM may optionally be restored in the background while booted without losing any changes.

Replicate your backups for better protection:

Altaro VM Backup makes it easy to replicate your VM backups to an offsite location over the internet, boosted by WAN Acceleration.

Granular, fast restore options: Restoring individual files or Exchange Server emails from your VM backups has never been easier. Browse through your data as you would with a local drive and instantly restore the items you need, without having to restore the whole VM.

Flexibility when you need it: Failing VM? Use your VM backup instantly to replace a failed VM temporarily and save any changed data once you restore the VM fully. Want to restore a VM but not replace/overwrite the live VM? Simply restore a clone of your VM backup with a couple of clicks. Moving VMs? Just restore VM backups to a different host.

Be confident: There’s no better way to sleep well at night than by being able to verify backups, and do so automatically on a schedule. Let the Sandbox restore function take care of that for you and get notified right away of any issues.

A UI designed for ease of use: Altaro VM Backup takes an intuitive, logical approach to backup/restore configuration and execution. We invest in your user experience, making the software easy to get along with and effective to accomplish what you need, when you need it most.

Advanced control over your backups: Flexibility is everything. Being able to run concurrent backups, queue or pause jobs, back up your VMs to multiple primary locations, back up live VMs on the fly or back up cluster shared volumes (and more) gives you options to customise a backup plan to suit your needs best.
