Mastering Backups and Maximizing Profitability with Datto Backup for Microsoft Azure

Datto’s backup and recovery platform for Azure offers MSPs a simple, robust, and highly affordable “one screen, one click” approach to BCDR.

Nearly three-quarters of SMBs say a ransomware attack would bankrupt them, according to the “2023 Datto SMB Cybersecurity for MSPs Report.” Plus, 45% say they intend to spend more on cloud security.

Yet in a world of AI-driven ransomware, misconfigurations, and natural disasters, there’s still a strong chance they will experience data loss. The margin for error is microscopic, and the odds are stacked against them.

The answer is a comprehensive business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) solution that delivers on every SMB requirement without adding costs or complexity for the MSP. Datto, a global leader in security and cloud-based software, accomplished just that with the launch of Datto Backup for Microsoft Azure.

Datto Backup for Microsoft Azure is an essential addition to any tool stack for several reasons, according to Brent Torre, General Manager of Backup.

In a crisis, the last thing a business wants to do is figure out where the data is and how to recover it. In Torre’s view, what MSPs care about care is, “Can we recover data easily and meet the SLA that we’re provided to their customer?”

“With Datto, the answer to both questions is yes. We combat the ‘backup sprawl’ that most MSPs are facing. We make recovering data, applications, and virtual environments fast and easy, as close to one click as possible, and all from a single interface,” Torre says.

Backups are always recent, Torre shares. “We incorporated BackupIQ, which is a uniquely intelligent automation feature. It self-heals with file system repairs, automatically adapts to OS issues, and intelligently re-tries the backup.

“When you configure the platform, you enter your RPO [recovery point objective] and RTO [recovery time objective]. BackupIQ will monitor continuously. If your SLAs are at risk, it automatically provides an alert.”

One of the biggest challenges that hampers cloud adoption is cost. Datto’s flat pricing model, which includes all the egress costs, is simple and designed to benefit the MSP and clients, Torre notes.

“The end user gets a multicloud backup experience without having to pay for that. Because of our scale, we can drive costs far lower than any MSP would be able to get on their own.”
Datto Backup for Microsoft Azure also prioritizes security and customer support. “There are many options for the customers to choose from. AES-256 is the common one, but we do support FIPS mandated encryption protocols,” Torre says. “Users can also configure site-to-site connection via VPN tunnels to our cloud.

“Delivering quality technical support is incredibly important to us. In a disaster recovery situation, it’s all hands on deck. But regardless of the severity, it’s a 24×7 approach. Our partners and their clients are never left stranded.”

Datto Backup for Microsoft Azure is not just a backup solution; it’s an essential component of a modern MSP’s service offering, ensuring resilience and security in an evolving digital world. This product empowers MSPs to provide top-tier cloud continuity services, which enhances their value proposition in a highly competitive market.
