Image backups, disaster recovery, business continuity, and on-site and cloud virtualization, all in ONE box!
Today’s businesses require a better backup solution. With more data being created, the value of the data increasing, stricter regulations, and no time for downtime—an image-based backup solution fits the bill better than older, outdated methods.
With image-based backup a picture of the workstation or server is taken and stored as a place in time for that machine. This is essential for restoration because rebuilding or virtualizing a machine requires not just files but also the applications and systems.
Additional advantages of image-based backup are: full restores are faster, can restore individual files, ability for bare metal restores (BMR), can verify images, and boot virtual machines, either on your local network or in the cloud.
Image-based backup is an integral component of a complete business continuity solution, and a key benefit of our solution.
Using image-based backup allows Datto to take an image (ie: picture) of an entire system, not simply individual files or applications. This contributes to a superior Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and the ability to boot virtual machines. Image-based backup is an integral component of Intelligent Business Continuity.
Datto devices now come standard with Solid State OS Drives for improved speed and reliability, Hot-Swappable Drive Bays for easy scalability, and RAID for added redundancy.
Backups can be virtualized locally to the Datto device or to the secure Datto cloud, instantly, with the click of a button. This unique feature is a key component to intelligent business continuity. Should a local disaster occur, business can continue as usual in the Datto cloud.
Datto virtual appliances now supports VMware and Hyper-V. Our Intelligent Business Continuity solution can now be purchased as a virtual appliance on virtual infrastructure in addition to our physical hardware.
All data is protected by AES 256 encryption both in transit and in the cloud. Additionally, users have the option to encrypt data locally, and pass phrases can be specified per appliance or per protected machine to meet compliance regulations.
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.
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.
Restore full machines quickly and efficiently through our USB Bare Metal Restore process. Go from physical machines to virtual (P2V) or vice versa with our unique dissimilar hardware tool that allows for maximum flexibility when restoring. No drives or cables needed as the system can run completely over the user’s network. Datto uses the latest networking technology to increase speed and performance.
