Founded in 2009, our company has grown rapidly over the years and continues to do so with our flagship solution Altaro VM Backup, which is rapidly gaining traction as the natural choice for Hyper-V and VMware VM backups.


Altaro VM Backup was born out of a need which we faced ourselves in the early days of Altaro. Backing up and restoring VMs was a needlessly complicated process without the use of a 3rd party tool, while existing backup solutions were expensive, still complicated to configure and use and let us down in times of trouble.We decided we could do better. Over 30,000 votes of confidence (and raving reviews) from customers confirms we were on to something.We're proud of the fact that thousands of customers and Partners worldwide chose to rely on Altaro, being excited by our fresh take on backup software, by their experiences with our Support team and by the number of times our software already saved their behinds. Don't take our word for it - Check out our testimonials and see for yourself the genuine feedback we get on a daily basis.

What customers say about us.

"I have installed your product at home and scheduled a backup on 2 VMs. It has performed flawlessly the backup 3 times already. One VM was restored as a test, and it went great (even while running the machine)." - Serge Schepers, Consultant, Belgium 
"I just did my first restore yesterday… Went perfect! Super fast:)" - Patrick Ford, Stephens Pipe & Steel, LLC, USA 
"I have been using Altaro Hyper-v backup for almost 3 months now and I am very happy about its performance and ease of use. It’s interface is simple and it works! If an issue does pop up and I have had two minor ones which did not affect its operation, Altaro’s customer support is exceptional, I always get a reply within 30 mins and their support personal are very knowledgeable and customer friendly. Great Product. Thank You" - Paul R.Loria Jr., Xerox Office Technical Support Group Lab 7801, USA 
"Thanks, I think I have made a decision. Your software has saved my butt this week already where others have failed. I made a change in my lab, that affects 4 servers, where I thought I was removing permissions but I actually deleted items. Using your software I was able to restore from my last back up and everything was great!" - Stephan Hartman, USA 
"Your product is great and we have already bought several licensed editions. We have recommended your product to several business partners and hope that your company continue to deliver high quality software like this!" - Thomas Widén, IT-Manager PRC Group, Sweden 
"Just wanted to say that I am loving your Hyper-V software so far. I haven't had any issues with backing up or restoring at this stage which I guess for me is great news. I love how simple everything is, it all just works first time everytime!" - David Wilson, IT Manager, Belgrave Heights Christian School, Australia 
"After working with the beta editions, I purchased two licenses for Altaro Hyper-V backup. It works great for baking up my Hyper-V VMs, and since it has file-level restore capabilities, it has really simplified my overall backup plan. I no longer need to pick and choose files from multiple machines to back up, with the risk of missing some that are needed. Instead, I just back up the entire VM with Altaro and can do file level restores when necessary. In addition, purchasing Altaro will save me money on Syamantec Backup Exec, because I will no longer need agents for backup exec to backup files on the Hyper-V VMs. That, taken into consideration, makes purchasing Altaro a no-brainer." - Chad Dean, IT Manager, Aerial Services, Inc, IA, USA
