Enjoy affordable backup solutions for servers running virtualized environments

Backup and disaster recovery strategies don't have to be a headache that only big enterprises can afford to handle. W5H Solutions is a certified Altaro Partner, and can provide you with affordable, efficient backup solutions for servers running virtualized environments with the use of Altaro’s Virtual Machine (VM) Backup software. Our choice of software is a full-featured suite that supports both Hyper-V and VMware virtualization technologies. In other words, our solution can cater to the most widely used virtual server options around.

Automatic Backups

We can have your important data being reliably and automatically backed up within minutes. In the event of tragedy data recovery would be easy as with only a couple of clicks, Altaro offers a host of restoration options to recover your data quickly and safely. Whether you need a single file back or an entire shared folder's worth of work back, we can help you recover your lost data.

Personal Data Security & Recovery

If you are an individual, many options exist to protect your data. From free-mium cloud services such as Google Drive to more complex paid services like Backblaze, we can help you get started with a reliable data security configuration. Our team is also experienced in setting up RAID configurations that can provide you with redundancy in the case of data loss. For a more simple solution, a backup drive can be configured using an external USB drive that receives backups from your main drive on a scheduled basis.

Server Data Security & Recovery

For servers, we can provide the same solutions that we offer individuals. However, in some cases, you may be managing multiple virtual machines (VMs) to support your workflow. In the case of VMs, it may be more ideal to backup per VM instead of the entire host machine. In some cases, this configuration is preferred as in the event of data loss or corruption, it would be much faster to recover the affected VM(s) as opposed to recovering the entire host.
