dattoinstantvirtualizationDatto ALTO 2 is the only hybrid cloud solution that keeps your small business clients up and running through outages, data loss and disasters. This business continuity solution is built specifically for small businesses, breaking down the barrier of entry for both the solution provider and end-user. You get a compact and powerful appliance that takes snapshots of your servers and workstations, then replicates them to the ultra-secure Datto Cloud, all for a minimal cost.

Image-Based Backup Datto ALTO 2 uses image-based backup technology to take a complete picture of the workstation or server. Advantages include quick full system restores, easy recovery of individual files, bare metal restores (BMR) capability, and the ability to boot individual backups as virtual machines. Image-based backup is a superior technology vs. outdated tape and disc.

Hybrid Virtualization Datto ALTO 2 brings the power and flexibility of local virtualization to small business. Hybrid Virtualization technology initializes a virtual machine (VM) in the secure Datto Cloud, then automatically connects to the local network through the ALTO 2 appliance on-site using a secure VPN tunnel.

Screenshot Backup Verification No more guessing if your backup is working properly. ALTO 2 boots backups as virtual machines, capturing an image of the login page to give you visual proof that your data has been successfully backed up. An industry first.

Instant Off-Site Virtualization ALTO 2 protects clients from site-wide outages using instant off-site virtualization. In the event of a local disaster such as a fire or flood, the entire network can be recreated in the secure Datto cloud in a matter of minutes. Secure connections are provided to employees and a business can resume normal operations.
