Based on my 15 years of industry experience, I can easily say I have never worked with a company that has such thorough and knowledgeable sales and support staff and stands so firmly behind their products and service.VP Operations, ePossible
Dramatically reduce downtime with backups saved both locally and in the cloud. Redundancy in data protection better protects users from the unexpected. Advanced bandwidth management software, local restoration and full cloud data copies are among the many advantages of this solution.
This proprietary technology eliminates broken backup chains. Each time a backup occurs data is converted directly into a virtual machine, with the most recent backup image always being the base image. Data is always available immediately, both on and off-site. This is a powerful feature in any backup solution, let alone one created specifically for small business.
Image-based backup gives Datto ALTO 2 the power of an enterprise-class solution. The ability to take an image (ie: picture) of an entire system gives users the opportunity to verify images, boot virtual machines and run remote offices. It makes for faster backup and recovery, and enables intelligent business continuity.
Power is nothing without control, and Datto offers a meticulously refined toolkit for device and account management. A single pane of glass is used to configure devices, schedule backup reports, monitor off-site amounts, set up alerts and more.
All data sent off-site is compressed using LZMA2 compression to ensure maximum efficiency and provide a stellar user experience even in low bandwidth and high network traffic environments.
Datto utilizes the image-based ShadowSnap™ agent, developed in conjunction with StorageCraft. ShadowSnap is based on the premise of dual backup engines: application-aware VSS by default, with the engine as a safety net. ShadowSnap is particularly useful in performing bare metal restores as it supports dissimilar hardware.
eDiscovery gives Datto users the ability to perform granular recoveries from Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Powered by Ontrack® PowerControls™ from industry leader Kroll Ontrack, eDiscovery makes it easy to search documents, emails and attachments by keyword and restore exactly what you need.
AgentSync is Datto’s proprietary technology for quickly and efficiently transferring files to and from the cloud. It allows users to prioritize server backup order, pipeline recovery points, and set up multiple agents to sync off-site simultaneously. This provides greater data integrity, reduces network traffic, and keeps off-site backups up to date.
The Datto cloud has no limits. Custom retention is easily configured to store backups off-site for one, three, seven years and beyond, all while consolidating older backups to save space.
Datto supports Microsoft Windows operating systems for almost any Windows PC or server that is still production today. Support currently ranges from Windows 2000 to Windows 8 and Server 2012. Granular recovery is also available for Exchange and Sharepoint servers.
Datto ALTO 2 includes brand new BMR technology from Datto. Users can perform bare metal restores to dissimilar hardware over the clients network reliably and securely. Starting from an imaged USB thumb drive the user will follow an intuitive GUI from selecting machines to automatic partitioning. The process cuts down restore time dramatically while also improving the advanced options for users looking to customize their new machine.
