NORWALK, CT – Datto Inc., an award-winning provider of hardware based on-site and off-site backup, disaster recovery and business continuity solutions is excited to launch GenISIS, an innovative solution that is used to seamlessly and permanently upgrade existing backup and disaster recovery (BDR) hardware to Datto SIRIS appliances.

GenISIS is unique because it allows MSPs, VARs and other IT solution providers to leverage existing hardware investments, while taking advantage of Datto’s award-winning ShadowSnap agent and Inverse Chain Technology.

SIRIS appliances upgraded by GenISIS operate identically to the devices created and sold by Datto, which ensures that users will not have to sacrifice any features or capabilities. “We know there is extensive demand for a solution that can repurpose existing BDRs, so we are very excited to bring this technology to our partners. GenISIS is a real game-changer and is going to open up a lot of opportunities for IT solution providers to leverage existing hardware and make additional profits,” said Austin McChord, Datto CEO.

To upgrade an appliance, the solution provider will simply attach Datto’s proprietary USB stick to the desired hardware, insert the Boot CD into the CD-ROM drive, and then reboot the appliance. Once the system boots off the stick, the user will follow onscreen instructions to configure the RAID and complete the upgrade. Once the stick is removed, the system will function as a new Datto SIRIS appliance.

The purchase of a single GenISIS Upgrade Kit can be used to repurpose an unlimited amount of BDR appliances. For more information on GenISIS visit: www.datto.com/products/genisis. There will be an informational webinar and demo of GenISIS on Friday, June 8th at 1pm EST. To register for the webinar please click here. Please note there are a limited number of seats available.

About Datto’s SIRIS SIRIS is a revolutionary business continuity solution specifically designed for MSPs and VARs. SIRIS dramatically simplifies and streamlines the backup process by taking the image chain out of the backup equation. Data is taken directly from the server and converted into vmdk files, which allows for fast and simple recovery. This hybrid cloud solution offers instant on-site and off-site virtualization, which prevents small to medium businesses (SMBs) from experiencing costly downtime in the event of a disaster.
