Datto Strengthens Backup Offerings with Virtual Appliances

Virtual ALTO and Virtual SIRIS round out the Datto product family of BDR solutions, for a complementary, integrated approach with use in physical and virtual environments.

Datto, a provider of hybrid cloud-based backup, disaster recovery, and intelligent business continuity, has launched a new appliance, Virtual ALTO, and has made enhancements to its Virtual SIRIS appliance, originally released in June 2014.†

“The addition of these virtual appliances are a win-win scenario for MSPs, VARs, and IT business owners who want an end-to-end virtual solution that minimizes downtime and provides robust data protection,” says Datto founder and CEO Austin McChord.††

Virtual SIRIS includes an enhanced feature set able to spin up local recovery VMs instantly, even in the absence of Internet connectivity. Like Datto SIRIS 2, Virtual SIRIS utilizes the same core technologies, including Inverse Chain Technology, Screenshot Backup Verification, End-to-End Encryption, and Instant Virtualization, with connection to the Datto cloud.

Virtual ALTO leverages Hybrid Virtualization technology, first introduced with the ALTO family of physical appliances. Designed to run on vSphere Essentials, vSphere Free, and Microsoft Hyper-V platforms, Virtual ALTO offers a medium-enterprise performance built specifically for the small to medium-sized businesses.

Virtual SIRIS and Virtual ALTO provide protection for both virtual and physical servers. Both appliances are available in a range of storage options from 1TB to 50TB.†In addition, Datto’s virtual BDR family offers integrated cloud replication, simplified disaster recovery failover, and management of all solutions on one interface.

Virtual SIRIS and Virtual ALTO are now available in North America and distribution in EMEA and Australia begins on October 28, 2014.†

A 45-day free trial for both offerings is available.†For more information on the virtual appliances, visit†
