Pros: Altaro is easy to setup and it just works! It's super easy to restore individual files or entire virtual machines. Altaro has changed my business forever...for the better.

Cons: Occasionally my backups set out of sync and I need to start them over. This is only a minor annoyance however. The good DEFINITELY outweighs the bad.

The best hands down VM backup solution, all points considered

Pros: Its user interface is easy to use and the setup does not take a lot time. We have actually been utilizing this software application for more than 2 years and we have actually experienced couple of concerns with this item. We had the ability to do more than 10 restores throughout the years and every one achieved success.

Cons: I wish to see a combination with some cloud services for storage offsite. Likewise, often we need to erase the backup of the server due to the fact that it stops

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

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

This software cut our storage needs and streamlined our backup progress.

Pros: The software makes backing up Virtual Machines a piece of cake. The features like de duplication really cut down on the amount of storage needed for multiple backups.

Cons: I would like a little more options for backup locations. The two options for a single VM (local and offsite) are nice, but at times I want more.

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

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.

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