Pros

Backing up my work is very easy to do. The software is especially good with office 365.
Solid file and database backup feature. Versioning is built into the product with customization of schedules and standardization across customer base is excellent.
Software is easy to use, set up, and administer. Also the cost is so much better than competing localized products.

Pros

Super easy to setup! super easy to use! rock solid software with outstanding support. This is by far one of the best backup&recovery products since years.
Altaro is a fantastic product at a reasonable cost and does just what we want in a solution.
We have been very pleased with the performance and are now looking at expanding our use of the product and taking advantage of cloud targets for backup storage.

Cons

Lack of support SQL Server 2017, Difficult to review backup manage stats vs billed amounts.
Inability to RESTORE to "another location" OTHER than the local C: drive of the computer you are administering from.
I've recovered several customer files that were inadvertently deleted with very little trouble.

Cons

You need to always keep following up the disk usage. There is no support for ReFS, what is a shame for a software that runs on Windows Servers and ReFS has been around for a while already.
I have never heard ot attended to any complaints about the product just the process of invoicing and processing an order is time consuming.
I wish they would complete the backup and just add a warning that there was an error code reported. Using a new storage device resolved the issues in our case.

For easy, efficient and reliable backups

Reviewed 2 years ago

The backup storage reduction is very impressive. Thanks to the ease of use, configuration errors don't happen on this platform.

Pros

Very easy to setup and use, absolutely off-the-charts deduplication and compression (inline!) second-to-none technical support on the rare occasions it was needed. The cloud management console is the awesome cherry on the cake...

Cons

Nu physical server backup solution. No possibility to have multiple schedules for backups

Vendor response

Thank you for your review of Altaro VM Backup. We appreciate it. We'll soon be providing backup of physical machines. We will be sure to notify our customers and followers about this.

Altaro VM Backup

No Nonsense backup solution

Reviewed 2 years ago

Backup software which does a good job making a backup of the system, upgrades do improve backup times and overal ease of use.

Pros

Ease of use Easy to configure Fast Backup times good monitoring reports

Cons

Backup needs quite long to load a backup, After selecting a date to restore if takes arround 20 seconds to load, then another 20 seconds to build the backup. Monitoring report often shows a failed backup, when going into the report tab on the software itself it doesn't show as failed.

Vendor response

Thanks for your review! Sorry to hear you ran into issues, our tech support team is ready to help and very easy to reach with a 30-second average response time! Could you reach out (https://www.altaro.com/support.php) with details of your issue and we'd be more than happy to help you investigate further!

Altaro VM Backup

Altaro VM Backup is a single product that let us backup Hyper-V as well as VMware!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Local backups, remote (off-site) backups with restore and recovery from Altaro make for a great piece of reliable software.

Pros

The best part of Altaro VM Backup is the ability to backup virtual machines across VMware as well as Hyper-V. Our data center backups only have to rely on a single backup and recovery product for local and remote disaster recovery.

Cons

The only seemingly downside to Altaro is that the options and manageability aren't as granular as some of the higher priced options but this works very well for us.

Ease of use and reliability. Easy to setup and supports backing up to a large and growing list if backup mediums. Ready for offsite and cloud backups on Azure, etc.

Altaro Made Our Lives Easier

Reviewed 2 years ago

Automated and offsite backups, restore testing, and everything else have streamlined our backup strategy and made our lives easier.

Pros

It is a fraction of the cost of other enterprise products. It makes our backup strategy easy to accomplish and monitor. Offsite backups are a breeze with Azure integration. Backup/Restore testing is easy. Support is very responsive - not that we have needed it much!

Cons

I honestly do not have any complaints about this software.

Real simple and easy Backup

Reviewed 2 years ago

Solid easy to use backups!

Pros

Pretty much everything is super easy to setup and it just runs. Ran into some very minor setup problems but that was mostly hyper v server. Simple management and scheduling for all normal backup tasks.

Cons

It's not an issue with normal usage but I'd like an easier way to drill down into backups and move backup sets to a new host. Maybe an optional back up schedule for when a vm is moved to another host.
