Altaro backup: installation and use with Hyper-V

In this tutorial, I will explain how to set up Altaro Backup with Hyper-V.

Presentation

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.

Environment

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.
