"I describe my experience with datto"

What do you like best?

That datto is software that offers solutions to different business problems. by means of its platform it guarantees you not only physical solutions but also virtual ones for different types of problems that you have. what I like the most is that it gives you backup copies of different types like those of your files like those in the database. also in case one of the copies you have lost or deleted by mistake offers you the recovery of them so giving you a greater confidence and tranquility when it comes to keep your files safe.

What do you dislike?

what I do not like about datto is that it has a configuration that consists of making a continuous backup which is in charge of backing up continuously, it is something that although it protects to a certain extent there are certainly some files that you do not want to generate copy of security by Be simple and do them. That its storage capacity allowed to store greater capacity of files to backup.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend the use of datto since its application allows the user to have a backup tool that guarantees the protection of all your files that will be well supported both physically and virtually

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Datto serves for those companies that want computer security when backing up their files by means of backups providing them with all possible solutions for their virtual platforms. It also guarantees that your database server is protected by this software, on the other hand it gives you security in gigabytes to store important information.

"Great backup solution, and very MSP friendly partner"

What do you like best?

Backups, once setup, are a breeze. We are able to restore files and whole servers in no time flat. Exporting data from the virtual appliance to the production network is so smooth. We have used the physical SIRIS platform as well, and the virtual performs just as well. If you know one Datto backup solution, you can use them all. Also, not tapes, ever!

What do you dislike?

We have one of the virtual SIRIS appliance deployed in a shared cloud environment, where we don't have access to the hypervisor directly. Because of this, whole server restores are not as easy there as they are elsewhere. Supposedly the shared cloud provider supports other appliances with a end-user facing interface, but Datto is not one of them. This is not a knock on Datto, as much as it is on the shared cloud provider.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Why are you waiting? Datto is a great company to partner with, and the SIRIS (and Alto) product lines are so painless to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Really fast restores to maintain as little down time as possible when a server goes belly up or a user deletes data. Datto does a good job of streamlining the backup validation process too - we look at a dashboard everyday, and we can see if the backups were successful or not, the last timestamp of the on device back and offsite backup, as well as the screenshot of the backed up server booting inside the appliance.

What Server Backup solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"A Cloud-Based Backup Solution So Powerful, I Don't Know Where To Start"

What do you like best?

While we've never needed to restore an entire server, there have been a few times where we needed to restore a folder or document. From how we've used it so far, I would say the thing we like best is the ability to restore data effortlessly. Although, the ability to spin up an entire server quickly, and how intuitive it appears to do so, may be the best features of Datto.

What do you dislike?

There have been instances where we had to view a server's contents further back than the snapshots offered. I'm not sure if it's a limitation of Datto and understand that it's not practical to maintain excessive archives or backups, but this is really the only thing that I've sought from Datto that Datto couldn't do. It's really been such an awesome tool and service otherwise.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Disaster recovery and business continuity, obviously. We have realized that maintaining our backups in the cloud, as well as the replications of those backups on physical servers, is vital towards the sustainability of any organization. Not to mention, it's so much easier and secure (and a million other reasons) better than the physical tapes solution we were using.

"Repurpose old hardware for new use."

What do you like best?

Baremetal conversion of existing CAPEX item that no longer in use to OPEX item that can save your business or job.

What do you dislike?

Datto tries to make everything shiny and simple and sometimes this means to fix simple problems you have to engage with support and they cannot really tell you anything besides, "they will fix it." Some may like this but I want to be more able to see and know what is going on with a device I am depending upon.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have the OPEX costs predicted since the local storage and recovery does not come without some cloud (DATTO only) storage and retention plan.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Takes retired server and storage hardware that is not being used because of performance or architecture limitations and allows it to be repurposed where it is able to meet the performance goals. Fills a need (backup) and does not incur capital cost.

"The Only Business Continuity System to buy!!! "

What do you like best?

Everything!! Datto has saved us many hours of server rebuilding due to software corruption, multiple hard drive failures at one time, user deletion !! You name it Datto has had our back when it comes to having data available to the client instantaneously!!

What do you dislike?

Nothing!!! Datto has come down in their pricing and also stabilized their pricing so you don't get hit with these great sales but don't have any prospects in the pipe so your running around trying to see who you can upgrade to try to sell again if they had turned down the proposal before. Now you know what your are going to pay for the unit every time and case base your margins correctly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a system you can depend upon and support when your stuck then you need Datto.

Datto was able to perform a BMR (Bare Metal Restore) to dissimilar hardware, which was 7 years newer server. They took over and got all of the drivers installed and really went the extra mile to help me get my client on the new server that Dell replaced under warranty since they had maintained the extended warranty.

There is margin to be profitable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We now have a business continuity system that works!! It really works! We no longer have to spend hours of unbillable time, as the server is covered under an agreement , working to mount images and perform BMR's that are time consuming from other vendors.

Datto's virtualization is fast. File restore is super fast. BMR's are very automated and support is always there to help!

We are profitable in the Business Continuity Area with Datto's

"Second-tier BDR solution"

What do you like best?

Datto has a simple setup and easy to use portal.

What do you dislike?

Restore process often fails, support is very lacking and they often fail to follow up

Recommendations to others considering the product

Datto is fine for a file restore solution. Do not trust it in terms of a DR solution. Especially Cloud Virtualization which is very unstable and has very bad support. Local virtualization is ok but not as good as VMware virtualization. I would recommend having a DR host on had to perform Image Restores to

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A more manageable backup solution from a MSP perspective. Veeam is superior but is very hard to manage centrally.

"Backup & Disaster Recovery "

What do you like best?

Quick Recovery of data and if needed bring the server up in a virtual environment. Backup is replicated offsite on secure servers.

What do you dislike?

Not much I don’t like about the product. Can’t think of any. Probably best solution I’ve used

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Server crashes due to hardware failure, can bring up a virtual server using this product. Building gets destroyed, bring up a virtual remotely and issue VPN clients for users. Life saver!!

"Datto SIRIS review"

What do you like best?

local virtualization, file restores and vhd exports are 3 of the best restore options available allowing a lot of options in a disaster recovery scenario.

What do you dislike?

devices can freeze up sometimes. Even though there are failure alerts, manual virtualization testing is recommended to ensure functionality of the backups.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Peace of mind that company data is backup up multiple times a day and that if the servers crash, local virtualization can get them up and running within 15-30 minutes.
