“We have built a product that eliminates complex overhead for end users and adds an unmatched level of service through our channel partners and our award winning support team.” - Austin McChord, Datto CEO
(PRWEB) April 16, 2013
Datto Inc., an award-winning provider of hardware based on- and off-site backup, disaster recovery (BDR) and intelligent business continuity (IBC) solutions today announced the launch of Datto ALTO, the first on- and off-site backup and disaster recovery solution for small business owners.
Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are creating more data than ever and the value of that data is increasing, but at the same time, so are the risks of data loss. SMBs have fewer resources to manage and protect data. IDC research shows that at least 15% of SMBs have no data backup system in place, putting them one hard drive failure away from a catastrophic, business-ending event. Another 60% are only backing up on local, onsite storage devices.(1) If the device malfunctions, data will be lost forever.
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 utilizing both on- and off-site backup, end users have a reliable and efficient way to ensure their data is recoverable regardless of any disaster scenario. Data loss and IT downtime are major threats to the bottom line for businesses of all sizes and can result in lost revenue, reputational damage, decreased customer satisfaction, decreased productivity, IP property loss and supply chain disruptions.
“We believe that every business, of any size, is entitled to a robust solution to back up their critical business data and insure themselves against costly downtime and extended interruptions in business continuity,” said Austin McChord, CEO and Founder of Datto, Inc. “We have built a product that eliminates complex overhead for end users and adds an unmatched level of service through our channel partners and our award winning support team.”
With Datto ALTO, Managed Service Providers can make the BDR investment much easier for SMBs to manage financially. 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 significant 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
