Backup and replication of virtual machines for Hyper-V
No more fear of backing up and replicating Hyper-V VMs
Back up Hyper-V VMs easily and reliably
Given the complexity of Hyper-V virtual environments, setting up a solid backup strategy can be quite difficult. Altaro VM Backup makes it easy to set up reliable backups and replication for Hyper-V. The Microsoft Hyper-V VSS Writer ensures that VM backups can be created without downtime.
Backups are now even faster, with multiple simultaneous backups per hypervisor. Multiple VMs can be backed up simultaneously – dramatically reducing backup time and resulting in more efficient backup operations.
Create your first Hyper-V VM backup in less than 15 minutes
WAN-optimised replication – VMs can be continuously replicated to a remote site to significantly improve RTO (Recovery Time Objective).
Move from daily backups to a CDP (Continuous Data Protection) model that enables backups in intervals as short as 5 minutes and dramatically improves the RPO (Recovery Point Objective)
