A Look at Datto Cloud Virtualization

A Look at Datto Cloud Virtualization

By Henry Washburn

Cloud-based disaster recovery has fundamentally transformed data protection for small to medium sized businesses. It wasn’t long ago that many SMBs relied on basic cloud backup or even tape for disaster recovery (if they had offsite backups at all). As such, restore times were slow and the associated downtime could have significant financial impact. Thankfully, there are alternatives.

Datto solutions use innovative backup technology, virtualization, and the secure Datto Cloud to nearly eliminate business downtime. They are purpose built for IT service providers to deliver cloud-based disaster recovery to SMBs.

Datto devices take local, image-based backups of an entire system at regular intervals, creating a series of independent recovery points. A backup image includes a protected system’s OS, software and files, stored locally on the Datto device and automatically replicated to the Datto Cloud. In the event of an outage, Datto’s Instant Virtualization technology enables businesses to resume operations locally on the device or in the Datto Cloud while primary systems are restored.

Performing cloud virtualization is an fairly quick and easy process. Learn about the cloud virtualization process, fast failback cloud virtualization, and more.
