  • Datto best products

    Datto topped the best product offering with out-of-this-world customer support. I have had a very pleasant experience adopting Datto products as backup solutions for our clients.

  • General Datto Common Questions and Answers

    Every Datto device comes with a 3 year warranty that is fully covered as long as the service is active and is being paid. After 36 months Datto will continue to support the device and host the data off-site as long as the service continues to be paid, but the device will no longer be covered by warranty. If the device were to fail, you can purchase a new device and Datta can pre-load your data at no charge.

    In the event of a disaster, Datto will send a brand new device with all data and configurations in place at no charge -- for all devices currently under service.

    A new drive or device ships same business day or next business day, depending on shipping limitations.

    If you stop paying the service fee, Datto will no longer support the device. We will not provide technical support, and the warranty is void. All data will be removed from our off-site data storage facilities after 30 days of non payment. Devices will still function as a local NAS.

    Datto's data centers utilize Security Access and Control Systems (SACS) that use global biometric authentication access methodology to track all authenticated data center employees and prohibit the entry of any unauthorized personnel. Datto data centers are staffed 24/7, in addition to off-site Critical Facilities Management Teams that report and record all access and alarm information to ensure the most comprehensive security possible. This translates to completely inaccessible data centers.

    Each Datto device uses advanced encryption technology to keep data secure at all times. During both transmit and storage, all data is fully encrypted using AES 256 and SSL key-based encryption. AES 256 is certified by the NSA as the encryption used for all Top Secret government data. Datto employees cannot view data.

    At Datto, the safety and security of your data is of utmost importance. That’s why our devices continually synchronize encrypted backups of your data to off-site servers in not one, but two redundant data fortresses located bi-coastally in San Diego, CA and rural Pennsylvania.

    Yes, you can find Datto's Technical Support Service Level Agreement here.

    Yes, if you do outgrow the storage capacity of your Datto device, you can upgrade your device to a larger device if your device is currently under service. Just pay the cost difference and  $100 fee.
