Datto Alto: Best Backup Exec Alternative for Small Business

by | Aug 2, 2013 | Business Continuity

Do you know about the best backup exec alternative for your business?

I truly believe, that for small business, Datto Alto is a true Backup Exec alternative, delivering advanced backup, disaster recovery and business continuity that was once never available to the small business budget. It is a solution that is easy to use, cost effective, and provides an insurance policy against costly downtime and interruptions for small businesses.

For small businesses that don’t have their own off-site data center to replicate a virtual server to, Datto Alto is an excellent Backup Exec alternative, at a fraction of the cost. Much like Backup Exec which can protect virtual and physical environments, the Datto Alto can also protect your physical and virtual servers.

One major advantage the Datto Alto has over Backup Exec is it’s ability to restore servers in minutes, without the need to restore across corporate data centers and networks. As a Backup Exec alternative, the Datto Alto recovers in minutes from Datto’s secure cloud data center, at a fraction of the overall cost.

Much like Backup Exec, the Datto Alto also restores or recovers to the same or dissimilar hardware in minutes, not hours or days. Backups can also be converted to virtual machines and restored or virtualized in a live or test environment.

Below are some major benefits of the Datto Alto for small businesses as a Backup Exec alternative:
