Datto NAS

Datto NAS is smart, scalable storage that connects to the secure Datto cloud. It takes Network Attached Storage & Off-Site backup performance to the next level, adding snapshotting and syncing to the cloud.

Product Overview

  • 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.

  • Snapshotting
    As users share documents, the system takes snapshots of their data so they can easily roll back to previous versions of anything being worked on. All data syncs to the Datto Cloud so it is always accessible, even in the event of a disaster.
  • Hybrid Cloud
    Datto utilises Hybrid Cloud Technology to improve redundancy and allow users greater protection of their systems and data. Hybrid Cloud continuity is simple in concept yet robust in feature set; it leverages the advantages of local backup and the security of the cloud.

    It starts with workstations and servers protecting data locally across the Local Area Network (LAN) to the Datto appliance from there it is automatically transmitted to the secure Datto cloud. This technology improves fault tolerance while reducing the reliance on bandwidth speed. The local Datto device can act as a restore hub for everything from files to application and system fail over, it can also act as a staging environment for offsite transfer. Scheduling off-site data transfers can be critical for bandwidth management and carries no risk of having unsaved backups. In addition, should the local device be compromised data that was transferred to the Cloud can act as a replica site for the business. A local only backup option cannot ensure data integrity should a site wide disaster occur.
