Jomar Datto ALTO 2 Series

The only continuity solution designed for small businesses using image-based backup and a hybrid cloud model, ALTO 2 delivers enterprise-grade functionalities at a small-business price.

Hybrid Virtualization

Datto ALTO 2 brings the power and flexibility of local virtualization to small businesses. 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 whether your backup is working properly. Datto 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.

Amazing Price Point

Datto ALTO 2 delivers breakthrough technology at a revolutionary price point. Small businesses currently dependent on consumer-oriented, file-level backups now have a clear, compelling, and cost-effective alternative: Intelligent Business Continuity with ALTO 2.

Small FootPrint

At 5 square inches and less than 2 inches tall, Datto ALTO 2 is the perfect fit for any small business. The extremely compact Micro PC form factor means ALTO 2 can live right on the desktop, attached to the back of a monitor, or anywhere else on the LAN.

Hybrid Cloud

Dramatically reduce downtime with backups saved both locally and in the cloud. Redundancy in data protection better protects users from the unexpected. Advanced bandwidth management software, local restoration and full cloud data copies are among the many advantages of this solution.

Image-based Backup

Using image-based backup allows Datto to take an image (i.e., a picture) of an entire system, not simply individual files or applications. This contributes to a superior Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and the ability to boot virtual machines. Image-based backup is an integral component of Intelligent Business Continuity.

Inverse Chain Technology™

This proprietary technology eliminates broken backup chains. Each time a backup occurs, data is converted directly into a virtual machine with the most recent backup image always being the base image. Data is always immediately available, both on- and off-site. This is a powerful feature in any backup solution, let alone one created specifically for small businesses.

Centralized Management

Power is nothing without control, and Datto offers a meticulously refined toolkit for device and account management. A single pane of glass is used to configure devices, schedule backup reports, monitor off-site amounts, set up alerts and more.

Advanced Deduplication and Compression

All data sent off-site is compressed using LZMA2 compression to ensure maximum efficiency and provide a stellar user experience, even in low bandwidth and high-network traffic environments.

eDiscovery Software

eDiscovery gives Datto users the ability to perform granular recoveries from Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Powered by Ontrack® PowerControls™ from industry leader Kroll Ontrack, eDiscovery makes it easy to search documents, emails, and attachments by keyword and restores exactly what you need.


Datto utilizes the image-based ShadowSnap™ agent developed in conjunction with StorageCraft. ShadowSnap™ is based on the premise of dual backup engines: application-aware VSS by default, with the engine as a safety net. ShadowSnap™ is particularly useful in performing bare metal restores as it supports dissimilar hardware.

Unlimited Cloud Storage Capabilities

The Datto cloud has no limits. Custom retention is easily configured to store backups off-site for one, three, seven years and beyond, all while consolidating older backups to save space.


AgentSync™ is Datto’s proprietary technology for quickly and efficiently transferring files to and from the cloud. It allows users to prioritize server backup order, pipeline recovery points, and set up multiple agents to sync off-site simultaneously. This provides greater data integrity, reduces network traffic, and keeps off-site backups up to date.

Broad Operating System Support

Datto supports Microsoft Windows operating systems for almost any Windows PC or server that is still production today. Support currently ranges from Windows 2000 to Windows 8 and Server 2012. Granular recovery is also available for Exchange and Sharepoint servers

Bare Metal Restore

Restore full machines quickly and efficiently through our USB Bare Metal Restore process. Go from physical machines to virtual (P2V), or vice versa, with our unique dissimilar hardware tool that allows for maximum flexibility when restoring. No drives or cables are needed as the system can run completely over the user’s network. Datto uses the latest networking technology to increase speed and performance.
