What’s new in version 7.5 of Altaro VM Backup?

Backup to the cloud

Until now Altaro VM Backup took a second backup copy to a local disk, network path or an Altaro Offsite Server. By adding support for Cloud Storage Accounts, users can simply enter their account details and have their Offsite Copies stored should they ever be needed.

Deane's cloud storage is the most cost effective storage option

Restores from the cloud resulting in the most cost effective cloud storage option

Supports Altaro's compression, encryption and industry best deduplication; resulting in the lowest cloud storage requirements

Does not require a VM running in the cloud; meaning further savings

What else has recently been added to Altaro VM Backup?

Altaro Cloud Management Console for End Users

Ideal for managing multiple distributed Altaro VM Backup Installations using a single pane of glass console.


Much faster backups by allowing more VMs to be backed up at the same time.

Backup Health Monitor

Runs in the background and detects any integrity issues with your backup data due to disk issues. If issues are found the Monitor will attempt to resolve the issues automatically by backing up the affected data again during the next backup.

Support for vSphere 6.5

Best deduplication in the industry - Augmented Inline Deduplication

Altaro VM Backup with Augmented Inline deduplication improves backup and restore speed. It's the best deduplication in the industry, creating the smallest backup size. Augmented Inline deduplication runs across all backup jobs, no need to group VMs together (no use of post processing).

  • Much lower storage requirements. Creates the smallest backup size compared to other backup vendors
  • Faster backups (less data to transfer)
  • Efficiency increases as more VM backups are added. Huge savings on storage!

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.

  • When a VM goes down, boot a Virtual Machine directly from your Backup Location in seconds, allowing users to continue to access it right away
  • In the background the VM Backup is restored back to the Hypervisor as well as any new changes made to the booted VM
  • Once all changes are recovered, simply switch over to the recovered VM. This minimizes Downtime to a simple VM reboot at the end of the Recovery process, instead of having to wait for the entire VM to restore.

A brand new look for the Altaro Offsite Server

A completely redeveloped Backup Server, with a brand-new look, is the best tool around to manage your offsite backups. The Altaro Offsite Server is used to replicate Hyper-V and VMware backups to an offsite location. The Altaro Offsite Server can be connected to the machine running an instance of Altaro VM Backup both via LAN or WAN connection.

Faster compression algorithms

Alaro are now using compression algorithms that leverage processors' multithreading and arithmetic abilities to give a boost to the backup speed and drastically lowers the CPU requirements of the backup process.
