Datto Launches Datto ALTO: Enterprise-Strength Backup, Disaster Recovery for Small Business

The new product provides the power of hybrid cloud backup scaled to meet the needs of small businesses.

Datto Inc., a provider of hardware based on- and off-site backup, disaster recovery (BDR), and intelligent business continuity (IBC) solutions has launched Datto ALTO, an on- and off-site backup and disaster recovery solution for small business owners.

Small and midsize businesses (SMBs) are creating more data than ever and the value of that data is increasing. At the same time, however, the risks of data loss are also increasing. SMBs have fewer resources to manage and protect data. IDC research shows that at least 15 percent of SMBs have no data backup system in place, putting them one hard drive failure away from a catastrophic, business-ending event. Another 60 percent are only backing up on local, on-site storage devices, says the company. If the device malfunctions, data will be lost.

According to the company, Datto ALTO is an advanced, cost-effective, and scalable BDR solution that provides companies with as few as one employee with a hybrid cloud platform for Hybrid Virtualization of servers and workstations. By using both on- and off-site backup, end users have a way to ensure their data is recoverable regardless of any disaster scenario. Data loss and IT downtime are major threats to businesses of all sizes and can result in lost revenue, reputational damage, decreased customer satisfaction, decreased productivity, IP property loss, and supply chain disruptions.

Datto ALTO is sold at a range of price points and is targeted to meet the varying, unique needs of small businesses while delivering robust functionality.

Image-based backup is not only the backbone of the Datto ALTO system but also adds usability in disaster scenarios. Users no longer have to pick and choose what files are backed up or worry about saving the most recent draft to a shared backup folder. In addition to protecting files, entire systems are backed up and virtualized so the applications and critical systems which keep a business running stay active, helping business owners avoid the hassle of securing temporary licenses for alternative machines. With Datto ALTO, a user can spin up virtualizations that are connected via VPN to their network automatically. This allows small businesses to cut downtime dramatically and employees can work without any special connections or software.

ALTO’s feature set includes:

  • Image-based backup
  • Seamless Hybrid Virtualization
  • Automatic backup testing via Screenshot Backup Verification Technology
  • Bare metal restore technology to perform system restores to dissimilar hardware
  • Datto’s Inverse Chain Technology
  • The computing power of rack mounts and towers in a box that fits in the palm of your hand
