The Cloud protected network storage platform

Datto NAS is a smart, scalable network attached storage platform, centrally managed and protected by the secure Datto Cloud. Easily share files and folders on the local network and replicate NAS snapshots to the Datto Cloud without any additional infrastructure investment. Store more locally, secure it, and back it up to the Cloud forever with our Infinite Cloud Protection option.

Secure File Sync and Share

More than making files available in a drive on the local network, making the latest files available on any device, at any time, from anywhere makes business possible. This is why Datto NAS enables includes Datto Drive Local. Based on the same technology behind Datto Drive, simply click a button to install Datto Drive on the device. Configure Datto Drive Local and access files from the office, mobile devices, desktop sync clients, and the web.

New Hardware

Datto NAS 3 will have totally new hardware as of DattoCon EMEA in October 2016, ranging from 500GB - 120TB. Our NAS 3 series is now delivered with the same robust hardware of SIRIS and ALTO models, but with the specialized Datto NAS 3 features described here. Expanded memory and storage options allow for a variety of additional use cases.

Datto Drive Local - File Sync and Share

More than making files available in a drive on the local network, making the latest files available on any device, at any time makes business possible. This is why Datto NAS supports Datto Drive local. Based on the same technology behind Datto Drive, simply click a button to install Datto Drive on the device. Configure Datto Drive Local and access files from the office, mobile devices, desktop sync clients, and the web.

NAS Guard

Not all network storage is protected by the cloud. This is why Datto NAS 3 can mount other network storage locations and automatically schedule and copy data from other devices to the Datto NAS. This will provide an efficient, replicable backup of a network share, performing local incrementals. Then, scheduled replication to the Datto Cloud provides backup job management and long term retention. Available Q4 2016.

ZFS Deduplication

ZFS Deduplication performs block level deduplication of DNAS data as it is stored, greatly reducing the storage required to store data. ZFS deduplication can be turned off or on per share. Data stored on the NAS is deduplicated at the filesystem level. This means that you can store more data on the NAS and use less disk space. This also means cloud snapshots are smaller, transmit to the cloud faster, and use less cloud storage space, saving time and money.

Infinite Cloud Retention

The most difficult challenge regarding cloud protection of data is selecting which data to protect. Datto NAS solves this problem by introducing an unlimited cloud storage plan. No more deciding what to protect and what not to protect, simply protect it all because when disaster strikes, you never know which files you will need.

Snapshot controls for NAS shares

When backing up a network share hosted on Datto NAS 3, admins can now configure snapshot retention settings to retain local images and push them to the cloud in as little as 1 day. This allows admins to minimize the number of images stored locally while retaining a complete history in the cloud.
