What does business continuity mean to you?

It should mean no business downtime, even in the event of a natural or technical disaster.

Odds are your business will experience a server failure, power outage, or even a natural disaster that takes down your IT system. Is your data backed up? Can it be restored in a timely manner? Can you operate during restoration? How would you operate without your data?

According to IDC, at least 15 percent of small to medium-sized businesses are doing absolutely no data backup. Is that you? Or, perhaps you’re one of the 60% that is only backing up on a local, onsite storage device. If that’s true, should your local device be destroyed, your data will be lost forever.

We’re happy to offer the first-ever backup and disaster recovery solution designed specifically for small business. It has the power of an enterprise solution, yet it’s robust, affordable, and super easy-to-use. And it can fit in the palm of your hand!

Introducing the next generation of hybrid cloud-based business continuity solutions built for businesses of every size. The solutions are designed to make mitigate downtime and growth and transition easy for your business, as your data and storage needs grow.

On the inside, components are optimised to support our robust software platform, which includes instant virtualisation and proprietary Inverse Chain Backup™. On the outside, the devices feature hot-swappable drive bays, solid state OS drives, and are built to be field upgradeable.

Instate specialise in Datto's small business solutions Alto-2 and Alto-XL. Although these solutions are designed especially for small businesses they are just as powerful and efficient as the Enterprise Solutions.


ALTO-2 uses image-based backup technology, so it takes full images of machines instead of merely backing up files and folders. With this technology you are able to restore systems and entire networks at a moment’s notice.

Most small businesses are using at least some type of solution to avoid data loss, but very few are protecting their business from downtime, which can be even more devastating. ALTO 2 will protect your client’s business from data loss and ensure that in the event of a disaster, they are fully operational with little to no downtime.

Introduced in 2013, ALTO revolutionised small business data protection. Datto ALTO 2 represents the next generation and is built on hardware that makes it faster and more reliable.

ALTO 2 packs 1Tb of local storage in a slim mini-PC unit that measures only 5 inches square and 1.7 inches tall. Off-site storage is flexible, with 150Gb, 250Gb, 500Gb and 1Tb plans, with the option for unlimited cloud storage. Datto ALTO is available in both physical and virtual platforms for Windows and Linux machines.

Datto ALTO XL utilises the latest-generation of Datto’s Hybrid Virtualisation. Hybrid Virtualisation technology initialises a virtual machine in the secure Datto Cloud, then automatically connects to the local network through the ALTO XL appliance on-site using a secure VPN tunnel. The recovery experience looks, feels and performs like a traditional local virtualisation.

ALTO XL takes this successful formula to an entirely new level, going beyond the additional capacity to include new capabilities. Included among these benefits is Datto’s Backup Insights™, an innovative tool that can track and report on changes to files and folders on a system through time. Delete a spreadsheet but don’t know when it happened? No problem at all, search recovery points to find the most recent version and restore it with one click.

ALTO XL comes in three product lines to cover a wide range of applications: the ALTO XL line comes in a 4-bay unit with models in capacities ranging from 1Tb to 3Tb, and ALTO XL Professional puts this hybrid cloud solution in 8-bay units ranging from 6Tb to 24Tb. Virtual ALTO comes with storage options varying from 1Tb to 50Tb.

All ALTO XL devices come with solid-state operating system drives for maximum reliability and performance and protects both Windows and Linux machines.

For rapidly growing businesses that demand true continuity and maximum value, ALTO XL is the clear choice.

In today’s workplace, people constantly need to  collaborate—and users are increasingly mobile,  using a variety of devices. That’s why file sync and  share (FSS) tools are so popular. In fact, effective  collaboration and organizational productivity  increasingly depends on broad user adoption of  FSS. However, consumer-grade FSS products  have a number of limitations that can make them  inappropriate for business use.

Datto Drive offers easy to use, cloud-based, anytime/anywhere/any device  sync and share functionality - the types of features for which consumer-grade  FSS utilities are known. However, it was designed specifically for businesses.  Datto Drive gives users the collaboration tools they need, while providing the  management, security and data protection features that businesses require.
