In this tutorial, I will explain how to set up Altaro Backup with Hyper-V.
Altaro Backup is a backup solution for virtual environments Hyper-V and VMware running Windows.
It has the advantage of being very light and does not require SQL Server database.
It allows the following restorations:
- Granular at the file level
- Granular at Exchange level
- Virtual disk recovery
- Starting a VM from backup.
For very small environments, Altaro has the advantage of being free for 2 virtual machines with certain limits.
For the realization of this tutorial, I used a Windows 2016 server with Hyper-V on which I installed Altaro.
It is possible to install Altaro on a virtual machine is sent on backups on a NAS or on a physical machine.
Backups will be stored on the Hyper-V.
In a production environment, backups must be stored on a network share (NAS) or in the worst case on a USB disk.
Before getting into the thick of it, you have to download the software on the official website.
