Altaro Software Brings Hyper-V Backup to SMBs

Altaro Software announced this week its Hyper-V Backup for SMBs. It comes with a free version that can backup two VMs. While there are numerous backup products that support Microsoft’s Hyper-V, this one is geared for smaller enterprises and aims at simplicity. It takes advantage of Microsoft’s Volume Shadow Copy technology so that you can perform hot backups, meaning that the VMs can keep running smoothly even during the actual backup process.

In addition to the free version, there is a five VM-license for $345 and an unlimited VM license for $445, which is significantly less than many of its competitors such as Symantec Backup Exec. Pricing is based on each Hyper-V host. Altaro is based in Malta and sells a variety of other backup software products.
