Altaro Announces General Availability of VM Backup V7 for Hyper-V and VMware Environments

Altaro, a provider of virtual machine (VM) data protection, has introduced VM Backup version 7, a backup solution for Hyper-V and VMware environments that is targeted at SMBs. 

VM Backup V7 provides live VM backup, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256 encryption, and customizable backup retention policies.

According to the vendor, new features in version 7 include Augmented Inline Deduplication which enables faster backup and data recovery for local and remote locations by transferring new data exclusively to the backup storage vault; support for Windows Server 2016, enabling businesses to take advantage of hybrid computing environments while protecting all data at every location; boot from backup, enabling IT administrators to instantly reboot virtual machines from the backup location so that VM servers are up and running with minimal downtime in the event of a disaster; and integrity testing of backups across the network to ensure the recovery of all data under protection when required.
