A business continuity solution that delivers enterprise-grade functionality at a small business price.






Storage: 2TB

RAM: 8gb (DDR3)

CPU: Intel Core i3-5010u

Network: 2x1GbE

Chassis: Mini Desktop

Single small device, Simple plug and play implementation, Web-based management for one or many devices. Supports protection of Windows, Linux, and Mac source machines.


Architecturally, ALTO is an x64 Linux server.

Its enterprise-grade architecture is unique because:

It’s a Total Data Protection platform

designed from the ground up which translates into cost efficiency, performance, scalability and extensibility

Architecture enables new Datto innovations

additional groundbreaking features, and business-building platform expansion well into the future

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 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.



How it Works

Backup Insights

Backup Insights provides the capability to rapidly identify and display what has been modified, created, or deleted between any two backups.

Backup Insights provides the capability to rapidly identify and display what has been modified, created, or deleted between any two backups. Backup Insights is available with no setup, and works for all backup client types (physical and virtual) for Windows OSes. Users can see the files that have changed between two recovery points, including those in long-term retention, and even instantly restore those files directly from a web interface.

Screenshot Verification

Our patented Screenshot Backup Verification, and new Advanced Screenshot Verification, ensure business has the most comprehensive backup monitoring available

3 Run validates more Windows and Linux backups, with greater frequency, from both virtual (agent and agent-less) and physical systems, than any other backup / DRaaS solution. Advanced Screenshot Verification adds the easiest application-level backup verification today.


Following backups, Datto BCDR solutions virtualize and test-boot protected servers, detecting any backup concerns using a combination of screen recognition and patented CPU register algorithms

This allows large quantities of protected servers, even across a fleet of appliances, to have backup data integrity validated at a scale traditional solutions could never match.

Instant Virtualizaion

Instant Virtualization allows a protected system to be virtualized and hosted either locally on a BCDR appliance (SIRIS), or remotely in the secure Cloud (SIRIS and ALTO) in seconds

Regardless if the recovery point is months or even years old, DRaaS solutions end the long RTOs caused from reconstructing backups on disk or restoring from magnetic tape.


When virtualizing a recovery point, our advanced web interface allows for configuration of CPU and memory resources.

Network resources can also be configured dynamically, allowing for changes to be made without restarting the virtual machine. While virtualized, backups can continue a normal backup schedule. Business continuity has never been as easy or as reliable.
