Altaro: Meticulous Backup For Virtualized Environments
Founded with an observation of the growing, basic need for good backup and recovery software for the home PC user. Having this market in mind, Altaro developed its first product, which made it simple for users to automatically recover any lost files. In 2011, Altaro pivoted from consumers to small and medium sized businesses and released their first solution for backing up virtual servers and this is when things took off.
Altaro VM Backup was developed due to a gap in the market, for an easy to use and affordable virtual backup solution for SMBs. Altaro VM Backup is an easy to use backup software solution which caters for the two main types of hypervisors, Hyper-V and VMware. It’s built specifically for SMBs with up to 50 host servers and is trusted by over 30,000 customers to back up and restore their virtual machines. Altaro VM Backup is reliable, intuitive and feature-rich, with outstanding support as part of the package.
Altaro pride themselves with a world class support team who engage customers by phone, email and live chat quickly and effectively.
While giving credit to the team for the success of Altaro, and moving forward towards the goal to become the No.1 Virtual Backup solution for SMBs, David adds, “When building our team our aim is always to get people on board who are better than us in their areas, to continually help us grow and improve together as a company.”
Altaro’s clients benefit from an easy to use product which takes under 15 minutes to install, with a very user friendly product interface, at unbeatable value and with outstanding support. David says, “Our competitors offer bloated, expensive solutions which are designed for the enterprise customer, we’re designed and priced for the SMB customer and SMB IT Reseller in mind.”
Altaro’s hard work has earned them a worldwide network of 4,800 partners and over 30,000 satisfied customers, 35% of them from the US and Canada and most of the rest being in Western and Central Europe.
Reflecting on the future of Altaro David says, “We have some great product additions coming out catering to different audiences like our MSP platform which has been high on the request list. Also, we’re expanding quickly, we are currently in the process of opening our first office in the UK and another office in the US.”
