The Altum Effect

Every second it takes to recover your critical data after a disaster can mean the difference between survival and closure. Altum was designed with this in mind. With Altum, you can be confident your business is protected.

Instant Onsite and Offsite Virtualisation

Two replications mean double the protection of most business continuity solutions. The protected servers are replicated to the Altum appliance at your premises (onsite). The Altum appliance has built-in protection against spam, viruses and spyware. Altum backup files are written in Virtual Machine Disk (VMDK) format, encapsulating the entire server environment in a file for rapid restore. The protected servers are also replicated to a secure data centre via an encrypted channel in the cloud (offsite). The offsite VMDK files are always ready to be booted for a rapid and automated restore, with no wait-time for file conversion needed.


Worry Free Solution


  • No complexity: Altum is a purpose-specific solution that operates on clear and proven processes, taking away the complexity expected of most business continuity solutions.

  • Affordable: Our flexible pricing options means Altum is highly affordable for every organisation, taking away the stress of a capital expenditure and the risk of a costly recovery process.

  • Monitored and Managed: Your backups are remotely monitored and managed by the certified technical experts in our Support Centre, alleviating your worries and freeing up your time.

  • Visibility and Control: Although we monitor and manage the solution, you can still log in via your own online portal for full visibility and control of your backups. With “Screenshot Verification” you can check the success of your backups to put your mind at ease.


Inverse Chain TechnologyAltum streamlines the backup process using Inverse Chain Technology, ensuring the most recent backup is always kept to the front of the series of stored backups. This technology takes the data directly from the server and creates a virtual machine (VM) for each backup. This direct process reduces the risk of damage to your data, as the base image is always the newest, and since each backup is a VM there is no need fora conversion process to occur before a restore.


Use your Virtualised Environment for ExperimentationYour Altum virtualised environment is the ideal place to test new applications and patches or to carry out employee training without impacting your live production environment.

  • User error

  • Malware

  • Hard drive failure

  • Theft

  • Flood or fire

  • Power failure or surge 


Still using Tape Backups?

Tape backups are expensive, tedious and vulnerable to human error with a failure rate of over 75%. In a disaster situation significant downtime is incurred rebuilding a server and restoring data from a tape backup system.
