Backup & Disaster Recovery Keeping Critical Business Data Safe

Be connected and secure, and in the case of any disasters, instantly restorable with Datto’s premium backup disaster recovery software solutions. You’re provided with agile ransomware backup protection, secured highly-performing networks, business continuity solutions for physical and virtual systems, and protection of critical cloud-hosted applications for businesses and sensitive, internal local data.

Integrated Image-Based Storage Technology

Using the Datto SIRIS 2, we leverage one of the Oracle’s most powerful, enterprise-level storage appliances to help our clients stave off disaster for their businesses while not sacrificing day-to-day performance. Designed as the next generation of network-attached storage, Datto’s SIRIS 2 maximizes end-user performance with an integrated volume manager and Zettabyte File System (ZFS).

Additionally, the SIRIS 2 back-up data recovery system can better prioritize and optimize performance as it thin-provisions its multi-layered pool of disk space. While this increases the complexity of the ZFS filesystem, the SIRIS 2 back-stops any potential data corruption by checksumming all data and metadata during the disk-writing process. 

Algorithmic Data Back-Up Storage

The efficiencies generated from this improved architecture makes Datto’s back-up data recovery (BDR) solution more efficient and reliable than a traditional network-attached storage. With its Copy-on-Write file system, the SIRIS 2 can provide immediate data back-ups after ransomware attacks. Since this Copy-on-Write technique rewrites data to separate disk space, these checksummed data can be easily verified. Given this high degree of data integrity, SIRIS 2’s integrated ZFS file system naturally allows for instant local and off-site virtualization and image-based backups

Unlike data snapshots used in logical volume managers, there are no performance penalties on database IOs since ZFS’s Copy-on-Write is writing to another part of the storage disk. Deploying an adaptive replacement cache, the SIRIS 2 BDR storage is constantly self-tuning between both the LFU and LRU cache eviction algorithms to optimize for availability and performance for business critical applications.

As network workloads change, so does the Datto’s SIRIS 2 data back-up solution. We can help provide your business with top-of-the-range solutions to keep it running smoothly despite critical setbacks. Datto security and backup technology ensures that your company can successfully access and control data, while preventing data loss from external threats.

Benefits of using Datto’s Backup Storage

Why Contact an MSP First?

In an IT emergency, it’s not unusual for a company to want to reach out to Datto directly, especially if a non-IT person is managing the situation. (“I know we use Datto. Let’s call Datto.”) But in the majority of cases, your best bet is contacting your managed service provider – the people who you’re already paying to manage your data-protection solutions.

Here’s why contacting your MSP is important:

  • Your MSP knows you, your business and your IT environment. They have a far deeper understanding of your network infrastructure, your hardware and the software running on it.
  • In other words: they are familiar with the exact conditions in which your Datto appliances and/or DRaaS solutions operate. This knowledge is crucial to a speedy resolution of the problems you’re experiencing.
  • A skilled Datto support technician can of course gather all the necessary information for resolving your problem. But that will require extra time that you probably don’t have. Your MSP will already have that information and may know the solution before you’ve even finished explaining the problem.
  • Your MSP is also well acquainted with the most common errors and known issues that could be affecting your systems. (That probably doesn’t specifically include a hockey pock lodged into the backup device, but it could include known issues caused by physical damage to Datto’s hardware, for example.)
  • Your MSP may not always have the answer immediately, but they can get it—probably much faster than you can—by contacting Datto tech support themselves. Datto’s support teams, which the company refers to as Direct to Tech™, are trained extensively to support the MSPs who manage Datto’s products for their clients.
  • In addition to Datto’s extensive Knowledge Base for common issues and education, MSP partners have access to an additional trouble ticket system for contacting support technicians. Your MSP will have a lot of the highly specific information about your Datto device, like serial numbers, that you may not have access to.
  • Depending on what level of service you receive from your MSP, your MSP may already know about issues you’re having, before you even contact them, and they may already be working on a solution.

So the next time you need tech support related to your Datto product, just give your MSP a buzz. They’ll know what to do.
