Altaro Software, a fast growing developer of backup solutions for virtual environments, today announced the release of Altaro VM Backup. Formerly known as Altaro Hyper-V Backup, the product enables administrators to back up VMs on both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware hypervisors, all from within the same application.

Along with several improvements made in terms of performance, the product offers full feature parity on both hypervisors: All functionality within the product is available for backups and restores on both Hyper-V and VMware. Despite all the additions in Altaro VM Backup, pricing remains unchanged, offering unbeatable value.

“The addition of VMware support in Altaro VM Backup offers us the opportunity to introduce VMware systems administrators to the affordable, easy to use backup software our Hyper-V customers got to know and love.” commented David Vella, CEO of Altaro. “This is an exciting milestone in Altaro’s development and I’m confident this new release will be well received by Hyper-V and VMware users alike.”

Besides the addition of VMware support, Altaro VM Backup has also seen the addition of a Central Management Console. Having the ability to manage backup and restore jobs across all Hyper-V and/or VMware hosts present in an environment means the product is a more scalable solution that also performs well in larger environments.
