Augmented Inline Deduplication – Best deduplication

Heavily reduce your storage space requirements with Augmented Inline Deduplication! Altaro VM Backup creates the smallest backup size when compared to other vendors. All backup jobs optionally run Augmented Inline Deduplication and post-processing is never used so you don’t need to group similar VMs together for deduplication to run efficiently. In the process, having less data to transfer improves backup and restore speed, saving you storage space and time!

  • Lower storage requirements for VMware backups
  • Less data to transfer results in having faster backup and restore speeds
  • Variable Block Size provides the best efficiency for deduplication
  • Storage savings will continue to improve as more VMs are being backed up and added!

"We backup both locally and replicate offsite using Deanes.  Having data offsite provides us with Disaster Recovery in case the worst was to happen.  The option to restore to replacement/loan hardware and have that shipped from Deane’s to site within hours, or start servers in their datacentre is a big win and minimises downtime."

Simon Purchase Meridian Cooling Ltd

"Prior to backing with Deane’s and Altaro we used Symantec to local drives.  We had a fire destroying our building.  Whilst we were not a customer of Deane’s at the time, we sent  the backups we had to them at 10pm on the Friday night.  They worked round the clock to recover our data and had our core servers online by the Monday in their datacentre.  By Wednesday all new client and server hardware had been installed and was fully operational in the standby location.  We now have cloud backup supplied by Deane’s and Altaro and can fully recommend the service they provide!"
