- Altaro has just released a new version of their virtual machine (VM) backup solution for Hyper-V and VMware environments that now includes WAN-Optimized Replication: Altaro VM Backup v8. WAN-Optimized Replication permits a business to make an ongoing copy of its virtual machines (VMs) to a remote site and to switch to that copy with immediacy should anything go wrong with the live VMs, such as damage due to hurricanes, fires and flooding. Downtime is therefore reduced to no time at all. Some more info here and here.
- They have now also launched Altaro Office 365 Backup for MSPS! As Microsoft does not back up Office 365 subscriber data, Altaro’s new offering enables MSPs to provide their customers with robust, reliable mailbox backup and recovery services. Altaro Office 365 Backup for MSPs backs up mail items and their attachments, with backups taking place automatically several times per day to Altaro’s secure Microsoft Azure backup location. MSPs can manage and monitor the mailboxes they are handling per customer through a centralized, multi-tenant online management console. More info here and here.
