Altaro has released Altaro VM Backup V7, a faster and lighter upgrade to its flagship Hyper-V and VMware backup solution, which now supports Windows Server 2016 and includes several highly-requested features including unique Augmented Inline Deduplication technology and boot from backup.
Altaro’s unique Augmented Inline Deduplication delivers faster backups and restores on local and offsite locations by making sure that only new data is transferred to the backup or offsite location. This augmented inline deduplication technology solves a common problem found in conventional backup solutions which deduplicates data after the transfer process. With Altaro VM Backup v7, that process happens before the data is transferred. This process not only provides quicker backups, but it also reduces the amount of storage needed to store said backups significantly more than any other solution on the market today.
"Version 7 is an important milestone at Altaro” said David Vella, CEO of Altaro. "Not only does it fully support Windows Server 2016, our new and unique Augmented Inline Deduplication technology offers our customers the best storage savings in the industry"
Boot from Backup is another innovation in Altaro VM Backup V7 that enables users to instantly boot any VM version from the backup location without affecting integrity of the backup. If disaster strikes, the VM can be booted up instantly from the backup drive with minimal downtime, while the VM is restored back to the Hypervisor in the background. A simple VM reboot completes the recovery process and preserves any changes done while the VM was booted.
