Datto seemed to be better than other vendors I trialed, and I inherited an Alto device, so it was easy to stay with them. I also assumed the backups had been working with the previous contractor, but it turns out they had been failing for months and no one knew it.

Datto has a better price point, available backup space, and retention policy compared to other players in the backup space. OneDrive and Google Drive are great contenders, but Datto File Protection allows for more granular selection of non-default folders that need to be backed-up. We needed a flexible solution that allowed for customizing the backup data set and Datto provided us exactly what we needed.

Datto seems to be the most reliable, easy to use, and cost-effective way to backup data. Their support is pretty good, they have an extensive knowledge base, and they are very helpful when needed. The cost is probably the second most important reason as to why we went with Datto. The first being the ease of access and the integration into our ConnectWise ticketing.

Datto SIRIS BCDR is the gold standard, the product that other on-premises backups strive to be. It is reliable, fast, saves company money and time.

ShadowProtect quality has decreased over the years and their price has increased. Datto is far superior in terms of UI, datacentre capabilities as well as confirmation of backup successes. Veeam offers these same features in a more complicated format but also lets you roll your own backup solution so we have chosen Veeam as our new standard.

Datto is not as feature-rich as Veeam, but it still offers the main features in a great backups solution that will help in a recovery situation. It is mainly meant for smaller businesses, so it's not a Veeam replacement. From that perspective, Datto fills a great void in options for these clients. It doesn't have the features of Unitrends either, but I have not had great experiences with Unitrends, so I would not recommend that option. Veeam is great for larger environments, and Datto is a fantastic option for the next tier down in size.

Datto is far and away the best backup vendor we have ever used. The product works extremely well, and is very easy to implement and manage.

  • Veeam Backup & Replication
Datto is an all-inclusive solution with minor set-up. It's almost turnkey. Veeam requires more knowledge and setup, plus additional storage, although it is more robust and more granular. Datto includes the cloud element built-in, whereas it is something extra with Veeam. For a larger enterprise, Veeam makes more sense just because you'll need that kind of granular control and you'll want to manage it internally (without an MSP), but for small businesses, Datto was perfectly capable and cheaper.

Datto and Barracuda Backup are very similar in design/purpose (both appliance-based with local backups and pushing to an offsite cloud), though Barracuda handles vCenter with a centralized backup console while Datto does not. VEEAM does a better job of backing up VMware than both Datto and Barracuda, but VEEAM requires you spin up a server and storage to do so. That's helpful though as you can establish your own storage pool and grow it as needed. Offsite backup though is priced per-server if you use VEEAMs service, unlike Datto and Barracuda which are both based on just the amount of offsite storage used. Synology is very close to VEEAM, but gives a bit more flexibility in allowing for a choice of cloud vendors to back up to. Given the choice, I'd probably go with a different vendor due to the storage limitations and interface issues.

We did the reverse, and we looked at this solution to replace Datto.. we regret going with Datto. As a result, we are moving all clients from their platform to Axcient's Replibit BDR solution. We have had such good luck, the backups are faster, and the restoration/export of images are ten times faster than Datto

The solution we used prior to Datto was only a cloud, and provided no onsite solution for data recovery. It provided no failover protection against a server meltdown and retrieving files that were either accidentally lost or corrupted could take 24 hours. With Datto, it's seconds to minutes to retrieve data or spin up a virtual copy of the whole server.

Datto is a legacy product, selected before I got involved in the backup design at the current organization. As there are no issues with it, no alternatives were considered. I used Bakula before and would recommend it or Amanda for an organization looking to save money, as these open-source solutions are "free" (hardware still needed, especially for off-site backups).

Compared to Solarwinds or EMC Avamar, Datto is more improved, and it's much better at business continuity. Both tools are only cloud-based backup services, but Datto has the option of the local backups as well, which is more efficient for disaster scenarios. Datto has many more options for restores, and is better developed and user-friendly.

These may have carved out a niche in one area or another that make them superior for that specific case, but no one does a better overall job. I would estimate that a Datto box will be the right fit for at least 85% of the SMB's in the US.

Shadow Protect being the closest on this list, none of the other stack up against what Datto can provide in terms of technology and being able to quickly recover from a disaster or data loss. What brings Datto above the competition is their level of customer support from their first tier all the way up to their senior teams.

Datto beats Replibit hands down, but the software isn't the biggest differentiator. Support at Datto is FANTASTIC. eFolder hardly provides anything you can call support.

Datto seems much more reliable with better backup success rates. It is easy to use and cost-effective way to backup small data sets. Support is quite good and they have a very good Kbase.

The product we tired in the past are either out of business or that product line failed. We have used custom BDR solution purchased from a vendor and found that while it worked you were never sure if the restore would work. We did not want to cobble together a solutions and the Datto has more support behind their products than we every could on a home grown system.

Datto is a superior product in regards to spinning up servers on the BDR appliance hardware. That is their killer feature. Barracuda's edge is the hardware refresh after 4 years of maintaining subscriptions. Datto requires the purchase of a new appliance after a time period as the hardware becomes unsupported.

We also use Barracuda for our backup and disaster recovery solution at our clients. Datto is much more expensive than Barracuda, the solutions are very similar, but the one thing I would give Datto the edge on is handling of Hyper-V instances. Datto makes Hyper-V restorations quicker/easier, but i do not feel it warrants 2 X the cost.
