System Protection

System Protection service plan is designed to assist you during serious issues with your business critical systems (hardware, data and applications ). This option allows you to connect to a stand-by replica system in the cloud and resume your work in minutes. The System Protection solution includes local backup, cloud backup, and cloud virtualization. Depending on your needs, two types of devices are available: Datto Alto and SIRIS Lite.

 

Small Business Doesn’t Mean Small Protection

Just because some business is small, it doesn’t mean that its data is any less susceptible to a disaster. Every business can benefit from the protection that Intelligent Business Continuity offers, but some may not be able to afford it. Built on the backbone of the Datto ShadowSnap agent, Datto ALTO is an advanced backup, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity solution that is easy to use, cost effective, and provides an insurance policy against costly downtime. Datto ALTO is the only solution in the Channel to provide affordable Intelligent Business Continuity to the small business space (watch Video). With Datto ALTO, users can significantly decrease the likelihood of interruptions in their business continuity by providing a unique feature set previously unavailable to the small businesses, such as image-based backup and Hybrid VirtualizationTM technology. 

 

Image-Based Backup

Image-based backup is the backbone of Datto ALTO and adds significant usability in disaster scenarios. With image-based backup, users no longer need to pick and choose what files are backed up or worry about saving the most recent draft to a network share, backup folder, or cloud service. Rather, the entire system is automatically backed up seamlessly, unknown to the user, at granular intervals. The system images, or snapshots, are then saved on the local device and mirrored into the cloud, providing a high level of redundancy in your backups across multiple locations.

 

Hybrid VirtualizationTM

This feature is the combination of instant off-site virtualization and the single-click connectivity of instant local virtualization. A failed system can be spun up easily from the Datto ALTO interface, dramatically reducing downtime. Automatic VPN technology seamlessly connects the virtualization from the user’s local network to Datto’s secure off-site servers. In the event of a local disaster, entire networks can be recreated virtually and connected directly to the cloud.

 

Inverse Chain TechnologyTM

This feature is leading edge because of its functionality and efficiency. Datto’s Inverse Chain Technology creates an optimal backup chain from scratch, and restores and virtualizes every point. In addition, you can change retention dynamically with the size on the device without having to reset or reseed. Inverse Chain Technology saves the backups in VMDK format, which means you can export backups and play them on a hypervisor or transport the VM and leverage your existing VM environment.

Screenshot Backup Verification

Datto ALTO includes automated virtualization testing software. Screenshot backup verification takes the hassle and worry out of checking backups. Once a day Datto ALTO will take a backup and virtualize it locally, not attached to the network. Once running it will snap an image of the login screen then check that image to make sure it is valid. After the image is checked it will be prepared in an email and sent out as an alert.

Bare Metal Restore (BMR)

Datto ALTO includes brand new BMR technology from Datto. This breakthrough technology allows users to 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. 

SpeedSync

SpeedSync is Datto’s proprietary technology for quickly and efficiently transferring files to and from the cloud. Smart queuing is used to prioritize server backup order (more critical data can be prioritized). Recovery point pipelining allows the next recovery point to upload while the current point is being received. Finally, agent sync parallelism allows multiple agents to sync off-site simultaneously. The combination of these technologies provide greater data integrity, reduced network traffic, and keeps customer’s off-site backups up to date, particularly in low bandwidth environments and those with busy network traffic. 

Complete Remote Management

Through Datto ALTO’s simple and intuitive interface, users can manage their own backups, if desired. They can control local and off-site screenshots, bandwidth throttling, even off-site snapshot retention, all through a single interface. 

Broad Operating System Support

Datto ALTO supports the widest array of operating systems of any BDR product on the market. With support for Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7 and 8, Datto ALTO supports almost any Windows system which is in production and use today.

 

 

Light Local Footprint. Deep Cloud Benefits

SIRIS Lite brings award-winning SIRIS technology to a whole new market. Using a simplified local appliance, SIRIS Lite brings all the benefits of a powerful backup agent and Inverse Chain Technology at a price that a small businesses can afford.

 

SIRIS Lite utilizes a revolutionary technology that dramatically simplifies the backup and recovery process. By employing proprietary Inverse Chain TechnologyTM, SIRIS Lite eliminates the inherent inefficiency of the traditional backup chain. SIRIS Lite takes data directly from the server and converts it into virtual machine readable files. These files can then be booted instantly from a web interface or by using any common hypervisor. This innovative way of storing data allows for instant recovery and can prevent downtime in the event of a disaster, offering the peace of mind that backups will be available at a moment’s notice.

 

SIRIS, SIRIS Lite… What’s The Difference?

SIRIS and SIRIS Lite use the same proven technology, with the same recovery and support options. SIRIS Lite is capable of virtualized backups, but differs in that the appliances do not support local virtualization or screenshot verification.

 

The Best Local Backup

SIRIS Lite takes advantage of StorageCraft’s reliable snapshot engine, providing some of the world’s most stable local backups. StorageCraft’s technology allows SIRIS Lite to backup even when VSS Writers are in failed states.

 

Break Free from the Chain

The SIRIS Lite backup process eliminates the area where most problems arise in the traditional backup process: the backup chain. SIRIS Lite takes data and converts it directly into a virtual machine each time a backup occurs. The most recent backup image is always the base image and does not rely on past incrementals to restore data. Since each backup is a fully bootable virtual machine, there is no need for a conversion prior to performing a restore. With no complicated rollup or restore processes, data is always available immediately.

 

Instant Off-Site Virtualization

In just seconds, backups can be remotely virtualized from the SIRIS Lite appliance in the secure cloud. The advanced web interface allows for configuration of CPU and Memory resources. Network resources can be configured dynamically, allowing for changes to be made without restarting the virtual machine. Even while virtualized, systems can continue to backup to the SIRIS Lite appliance and the secure cloud.

 

SpeedSync

SpeedSync is the proprietary technology for quickly and efficiently transferring files to and from the cloud. It starts with advanced LZMA2 compression algorithms to provide optimal data compression and reduce transfer data size. Smart queuing is used to prioritize server backup order (more critical data can be prioritized). Recovery point pipelining allows the next recovery point to upload while the current point is being received. Finally, agent sync parallelism allows multiple agents to sync off-site simultaneously. The combination of these technologies provide greater data integrity, reduced network traffic, and keeps customer’s off-site backups up to date, particularly in low bandwidth environments and those with busy network traffic.

 

Future Ready

SIRIS Lite appliances support the latest standards and are continuously being updated. Every SIRIS Lite appliance supports software RAID and 2TB+ Volumes including advanced format drives. SIRIS Lite appliances also support GPT Partition formats including those using EFI Boot. SIRIS Lite is capable of backing up both physical and virtual systems with nearly any storage configuration. All SIRIS Lite appliances regularly download and install updates in the background, ensuring that every device is always running the latest version.

 

Centralized Management

All appliances are controlled through an easy to use central web interface. This interface allows for quick interface it is possible to virtualize a failed server on an appliance that may be hundreds of miles away with just a few clicks. The interface even allows for RDP access to remote servers and VMs through a secure VPN connection.


Broad Operating System Support

SIRIS Lite appliances support the widest array of operating systems of any BDR product on the market. With support for Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008 and 7, SIRIS Lite supports almost any Windows system which is still in production today.

 

Better Bare Metal Restore

SIRIS Lite devices use a completely unique method for performing bare metal restores. Rather than use a limited restore environment that fits on a single CD, SIRIS Lite supports network BMR. The SIRIS Lite device acts as a network boot server allowing the destination system to be booted using PXE Boot (common on almost all systems newer than 2001). SIRIS also supports restoring to smaller volumes, a feature absent in many competing products.
