Datto ALTO XL is the new cost-effective way for businesses of all sizes to get comprehensive protection against downtime.

Whilst not offering the instant “on-site” virtualisation that comes with SIRIS 2, it harnesses all of the other major features including the power of the Datto cloud for Hybrid virtualisation in the cloud.

Product Family

    Datto ALTO XL is available in two versions designed to meet your specific business needs:

  • Datto ALTO XL: 1Tb to 3Tb
  • Datto ALTO XL Professional: 6Tb to 24Tb

Product Overview

  • Hybrid Virtualisation
    Datto ALTO XL brings the power and flexibility of local virtualisation to small business. Hybrid Virtualisation technology initialises a virtual machine (VM) in the secure Datto cloud, then automatically connects to the local network through the ALTO XL appliance on-site using a secure VPN tunnel.
  • Inverse Chain Technology
    Datto developed a smarter backup process, with Inverse Chain Technology. This proprietary technology eliminates problems in the backup chain, where most problems occur in the backup process. This feature is included in Datto SIRIS 2, Datto ALTO 2, Datto ALTO XL and Datto NAS.

    Each time a backup occurs data is converted directly into a virtual machine, with the most recent backup always being the base image. These backups are not dependent on previous snapshots allowing for freedom over changing retention and deleting snapshots without resetting the chain or dropping a new base image. Since each backup is a fully bootable virtual machine, there is no need for a conversion to occur before performing a restore. With no complicated rollup or restore processes, data is always available immediately both on-site and off-site.

    Datto’s Inverse Chain Technology avoids broken backup chains and enables virtualisation to happen almost instantaneously.

  • Backup Insights
    Backup Insights gives us the power to see what happened between any two backup points? It enables us to find a folder that was deleted, without knowing specifically when it was deleted, or to determine which files have been affected by a virus.

    Backup Insights has the ability to identify file and application changes between any two backup points. It can recover files and applications directly from the interface with almost no information about when they were lost or even where on the machine they resided.

    Backup Insights is one of the biggest innovations in BDR and business continuity in the last decade. Never before have we had the capability to so easily see what has been modified, created, or deleted between any two points in time.

    Backup Insights is a proprietary technology, available with Datto ALTO XL.

  • Screenshot Backup Verification
    No more guessing if your backup is working correctly. An industry first, this technology which is proprietary and unique to Datto, delivers proof that the backup was successful. It boots every backup as a virtual machine, tests its integrity and then sends a screenshot of the system log on screen directly to us, and you, the client if required.

    Screenshot Backup Verification is available with Datto ALTO XL.

  • Hot-Swappable Drive Bays
    All Datto ALTO XL devices come equipped with hot-swappable drive bays enabling us to perform on-site field upgrades, ensuring the device will grow with your business.
  • Amazing Price Point
    Datto ALTO XL delivers breakthrough technology at a revolutionary price point. Small businesses currently dependent on consumer-oriented, file-level backups now have a clear, compelling and cost-effective alternative: Intelligent Business Continuity with ALTO XL.
