The Datto SIRIS 3 devices still maintain a better Recovery Time Objective (RTO) than any other backup software, cloud backup or backup disaster recovery (BDR) solution on the market today. Being able to virtualise a copy of your servers instantly, offers the unique feature of being the only BDR solution designed and built specifically to mitigate downtime for businesses.
Building on the success of the SIRIS 2 Datto have updated the underlying technology to improve performance and have also expanded the reach of their business continuity solutions with new models, making them even more accessible to small businesses as well as much larger enterprises, available in both physical and virtual platforms.
When downtime just isn’t an option, SIRIS 3 is the preferred choice.
- Datto SIRIS 3X Single/Two Agent: 1TB to 2TB (SSD)
- Datto SIRIS 3 Business: 500Gb to 3Tb
- Datto SIRIS 3 Professional: 1Tb to 10Tb
- Datto SIRIS 3 Enterprise: 5Tb to 120Tb
Datto SIRIS 2 is available in four distinct product lines designed to meet your specific needs:
- Instant Virtualisation On-Site and Off-Site
Backups can be virtualised locally on the Datto device or in the cloud, instantly, with the click of a button. This unique feature is a key component to intelligent business continuity. Should a local disaster occur, business can continue as usual in the Datto cloud.
- 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.
The SIRIS starts by protecting workstations and servers locally with backups taken across the Local Area Network (LAN). From there a copy of the backup data 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.
- 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 devices.
- 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.
- Hot-Swappable Drive Bays
All Non-SSD Datto SIRIS 3 devices come equipped with hot-swappable drive bays enabling us to perform on-site field upgrades, ensuring the device will grow with your business.
- Datto SIRIS S-3X1 & S-3X2
The new devices in the SIRIS range are the Flash SSD based X models. These smaller devices offer the full SIRIS service but flash SSD storage to improve performance. The S-3X1 & S-3X2 are also special as the price point is greatly reduced making the industry leading technology available to even the smallest of customers.
- Ransomware Protection
Unfortunately, there is now way to stop 100% of potential infections, malware or ransomware. Protection against modern day cyber threats must be multi-layered, grouped under the following:
- Educating staff.
- Making sure your network is protected by Firewalls and Anti-Malware software.
- Ensuring you have a good and recent backup of your data.
The Datto SIRIS has always offered protection and can always be relied upon as a final re-action to locked or infected files. As the device can take full snapshots of your data throughout the day rather than just once a day you can be sure that you’ll not only be able to get your data back but also get it back as close to the event as possible.
