The Datto BCDR agent is an application that runs in the user space and kernel space of the OS driver stack to perform block-level backups of physical, virtual, and public cloud based servers. Backup data is stored as raw disk images in a local ZFS-based disk array.

In the event of data loss, customers can recover data in a variety of ways including; restoring files or directories, mounting volumes as iSCSI targets or Samba shares, launching a backup as a local or remotely hosted virtual machine, or deploying a backup to physical hardware.
