Overall Satisfaction with Datto

We implement only Datto Technologies to handle all of the backup and disaster recovery needs for all of customers. We are a Managed Services Provider and find both the ease of implementation, day to day monitoring to be second to none. It takes away a lot of stress knowing that Datto has our back.


  • Datto backups just work. Rarely do I ever need to worry about backups not running, failing, or not properly backing up. Datto is pretty much a set it and forget device.
  • Datto offers screenshots of systems that have been previously backed up. This takes away a lot of stress, wondering whether or nor our servers will be able to be restored should disaster strike. We can just check the screenshots an know that our backups are ready to restore at a moments notice.
  • If it turns out that you do need to reach out to Datto support, they are some of the best, most knowledgeable support staff I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. They are quick, friendly, and know their Datto Technologies.
  • Datto Backup systems are ridiculously easy to setup. Just follow some prompts and you will be backing up in no time.


  • If I had to choose a con, I would like the ability to receive alerts when my offsite backups are more than 24 - 48 hours out of date.
  • Datto is a worthwhile investmant that will only save you stress and possible loss of revenue in the future. If a mission critical server goes down, and you have it backed up with a Datto Device, you can rest easy knowing that you can have that server back in very little time.
We use Datto device because they are priced right and very easy to setup and use. I have used AppAssure and Unitrends in the past and find them both to be a lot more involved and downright complicated at times.

If you have a business and rely on servers and PCs for your day to day business, you simply must have a Datto device. You never want to be caught in a situation where a server pops and your data is just gone. With a Datto device, you will never lose sleep again wondering whether your data is safe.
