We’re pleased to announce the launch of Altaro VM Backup v7.6 – which now includes new, highly requested functions such as Continuous Data Protection (CDP) and Grandfather-Father-Son Archiving (GFS).

With the introduction of CDP, VMs can be backed up as frequently as every 5 minutes. This ensures that in a data loss scenario only a few minutes of data are lost, optimizing the Recovery Point Objective (RPO).

Key features in Altaro VM Backup v7.6:

  1. Continuous Data Protection (CDP) – Users can switch from running daily backups to a continuous data protection model yielding an improvedRecovery Point Objective (RPO) of up to 5 minutes.

When CDP is enabled, VMs can be backed up as frequently as every 5 minutes. This dramatically minimizes the number of minutes of lost              data, should disaster strike.

          IMP: CDP is only available to customers with an active renewal (SMA) who have the “Unlimited Plus” edition of Altaro VM Backup.

  1. Grandfather-Father-Son Archiving (GFS) for Local Backups – Users can choose to archive the backup versions in addition to their continuous and daily backups instead of deleting them. Now users can easily set up three separate backup cycles to store three new backup versions every week, every month and every year.

          IMP: GFS is available for all customers with an active renewal (SMA) who have Unlimited or Unlimited Plus Editions of Altaro VM                          Backup.
