By CIOReview | Friday, February 26, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Altaro Software, a rapidly growing developer of backup solutions for virtual environments, has announced the release of Altaro VM Backup. The product enables administrators to back up VMs on both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware hypervisors, all from within the same application.

Altaro is a fast-growing developer of easy to use and affordable backup solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses, specializing in backup for virtualized environments.

Along with several improvements made in terms of performance, the product offers full feature parity on both hypervisors: All functionality within the product is available for backups, and restores on both Hyper-V and VMware. This offering by Altaro is being seen as an unbeatable value as the pricing is unaffected despite all the additions in Altaro VM Backup.

"The addition of VMware support in Altaro VM Backup offers us the opportunity to introduce VMware systems administrators to the affordable, easy to use backup software," commented David Vella, CEO of Altaro.

Besides the addition of VMware support, Altaro VM Backup has also seen the addition of a Central Management Console. Having the ability to manage backup and restore jobs across all Hyper-V and/or VMware hosts present in an environment means the product is a more scalable solution that also performs well in larger environments.

Altaro VM Backup is available in three editions: Standard Edition—Most functionality with protection of up to five VMs; Unlimited Edition—All functionality for an unlimited number of VMs and supports clusters; Free Edition - Protects up to two VMs and is offered as freeware.

The aim of the company is to provide full-featured, affordable backup software by an outstanding personal Support team.
