Datto’s proprietary weighted replication algorithm that enables ALTO to more efficiently sync data with the Datto Cloud.
Built on the efficient LZMA2 compression algorithm, SpeedSync enables multiple images to be pushed off site to the Datto Cloud at one time, subject to bandwidth throttling settings.
The base filesystem used in the ALTO built on industry standard ZFS. It provides protection against data corruption, support for high storage capacities, efficient data compression, integration of the concepts of filesystem and volume management, snapshots, copy-on-write clones, and RAID.
It is used as the basis for continuous integrity checking and automatic repair with enhancements to enable Inverse Chains, Instant Virtualization, and a host of other capabilities.
The most popular general purpose web server in the world, running more than half the world’s websites.
Apache provides the basic web hosting capabilities for the Remote Web management connection, web based file restores, web based NAS file access, and ownCloud on ALTO.
PHP 7 + FPM
The latest and most performant release of the popular PHP web development platform combined with the benefits of the FastCGI Process Manager.
PHP is the application language for the ALTO platform, and FPM is the mechanism used by Apache to turn PHP into executable bits at runtime. This combination dramatically enhances ALTO performance, while enabling better memory management, adaptive process spawning and other goodies that make the ALTO platform more capable across the board.
Also known as Kernel-based Virtual Machine, this highly performant enterprise class virtualization host is embedded in every ALTO hardware and software appliance.
It is used for all local device virtualization, all screenshot verifications, and to generate Backup Insights file lists for individual file restores.
The latest release of one of the most popular Linux variants on the market, providing enterprise class security, manageability, and performance in a small footprint.
Ubuntu is the basic operating system for all ALTO products, and supports many standard packages that ALTO uses as building blocks for the platform.
Next-Gen Datto BMR
Newly re-engineered to provide faster, more resilient bare metal restore options, BMR creates a bootable USB to plug into and image replacement hardware.
Simply create a BMR USB stick, plug it into the destination, and select the image to restore. Images and drivers are pulled in as needed to make this a fast restore process, and get the systems back up and running on new hardware fast.
