Altaro VM Backup v8 introduces WAN-Optimized Replication

Published: Thursday, 15 November 2018 08:57

Altaro has launched the latest version of its Hyper-V & VMware backup solution, which now enables continuous replication with WAN-Optimized Replication. This enables system administrators to replicate ongoing changes to their virtual machines (VMs) to a remote site and to seamlessly continue working from the replicated VMs should something go wrong with the live VMs.

"WAN-Optimized Replication allows businesses to continue accessing and working in the case of damage to their on-premise servers. If their office building is hit by a hurricane and experiences flooding, for instance, they can continue working from their VMs that have been replicated to an offsite location," explained David Vella, CEO and co-founder of Altaro Software. "As these are continually updated with changes, businesses using Altaro VM Backup can continue working without a glitch, with minimal to no data loss, and with an excellent recovery time objective, or RTO."

Centralised, multi-tenant view for MSPs

Managed service providers (MSPs) can now add replication services to their offering, with the ability to replicate customer data to the MSP's infrastructure. This way, if a customer site goes down, that customer can immediately access its VMs through the MSP's infrastructure and continue working.

With Altaro VM Backup for MSPs, MSPs can manage their customer accounts through a multi-tenant online console for greater ease, speed and efficiency, enabling them to provide their customers with a better, faster service.
