Datto Review

2019-09-17

I use Datto on a daily basis to monitor backups for multiple clients.

Pros

Failures and notifications stick out immediately so they can be addressed right away.

Cons

If screenshot verification's fail, they should automatically try again the next time that a backup is run.

Unbelievable functionality

2019-01-21

My company has had a great experience with Datto Remote Management.

Pros

The full functionality for everything from software deployment, patch management, security baselines, etc.

Cons

There is a learning curve to get familiar with the dashboard, however once you see how it all works it makes sense.

Datto Enterprise Backup

2018-11-29

Overall great product. The company we use as our datto support - are thorough and quick to help when needed. If a backup fails, they immediately contact me to remedy the issue. Having that level of support is a huge piece of mind. Very good product, on site and in the cloud storage.

Pros

Storage size, speed of backups/restores, 3rd party company support who manage our backups/restores.

Cons

Price but can you really put a price on data loss?

Multi-Monitor and back up

2019-12-03

I enjoy it, it helps us understand if there's multiple issues on a user PC where we can schedule remote support for after hours or recommend replacements.

Pros

An array of software to monitor computers.

Cons

Nagging notifications more than once a day making it seem like certain things are desperate - but they're just warnings.

Remote monitoring made easy

2019-06-24

The only thing Datto could do better is by adding a better in-app interface to navigate to other machines.

Pros

It comes with built-in scripts for easy installations as well as having a fully functioning remote control feature called Splashtop.

Cons

Datto sometimes has severe memory leaks. This is typically when you are connected to a computer that is no longer online and Datto is still trying to reach it pro-actively using a lot of memory, so far this is the only issue I have run into that recurs.

Acceptable Product,Bu There are Better Options

2019-07-14

Overall, I would say that Datto is an acceptable product for system backups, but there are better alternatives.

Pros

Remote management is good.

Cons

The product simply doesn't work as seamlessly as competing products. Support can be hard to work with at times. We have had more backup errors and performance impacts on protected systems then we do with other products.

How important is your data? No matter what you do, you c an't do it without data. So back it up.

2017-10-13

Pros

They could have paid through the next two or three years with instantly accessible, updated-in-real-time, cloud-based file storage, recovery and security with Datto for what we invoiced them for the job.

Cost effective cloud storage with unlimited users

2019-02-02

Pros

Various ways to share your data through shared links or group permissions setup by the admin.

Cons

Admin visibility can get somewhat confusing as admins cannot see all data stored in accounts created for their employees thus losing some data retention securities along with it.

Great product ... but has a ways to go..

2019-02-20

Pros

I love the ability to manage all of my devices in one place, from running components to patch management. Datto has made my life easier!

Cons

Many many bugs .... The software tends to send the wrong signal and causes problems with determining which jobs have ran and which are scheduled. We are still unable to edit multiple components at once, which causes extreme slowness in day to day tasks.

Beware missing files in backups

2019-09-18

When we found files were not showing as expected during browsing or searching of the backups we contacted support. After several back and forth conversations about us using wild-card search or quotes or leaving out dashes and doing a screen share they eventually said that indexing must not be complete, there is no way to know when it will complete and it could take a month or more. At our company we can't wait a month or more in hopes that a file we need to restore will eventually magically show up.

Pros

The software was fairly straight forward to setup and assign licenses for. The setup options were reasonably intuitive.

Cons

Software dashboard showed backups completed successfully, but when we spot checked data there were large amounts of data missing.

Great for out of business sharing!

2019-01-26

Pros

We use this to share a multitude of invoices with people outside of our company. Other products don't allow sharing outside of the organization.

Cons

The syncing isn't always real-time, if you have a few minutes to wait it is fine.

Open Mesh Access Points

2018-10-12

I also find the alerts very useful when a device goes offline.

Pros

Ease of setting up new devices. Quickly making changed that get distributed to all other nodes in the given network. Cloud based is a plus in this instance. I'm typically not a fan of most clound based solutions.

Cons

Quite a bit more pricey that other wireless AP solutions.

Datto software can take and store excellent backups, but their interface routinely doesn't work.

2018-04-10

The local backups are very reliable, they do offsite in a way that support can retrieve your data when needed, and the company if very polite and friendly, and will gladly explain why the part you need doesn't work.

Pros

Backups are easy to review and set up.

Cons

Support will routinely close a ticket just saying that they are aware something a feature doesn't work, and they suggest that if you would like them to work as advertised a feature request should be put it.

Datto is a great solution for an MSP

2016-05-02

Datto's greatest strength is ease of management. We manage over 700 individual backups with cloud sync and I believe it is the most efficient solution for managing large quantities of backups.

Datto

2019-04-30

We were able to switch away from tapes and also get our backups in a secure location so if a major disaster hit we know our data is safe.

Pros

Does everything a good backup service should do. On device on site backups Cloud backups. Able to run environment from the cloud if major disaster hits. Set it and forget it type of system

Cons

Can be kind of expensive but if you want your data protected its worth the price tag.

Burned Up Hard Drive or Burned Down Building, the Data Remains.

2019-10-24

To date, while still new to its use, it has been all positive.

Pros

Ease of use is key for a company with a very limited amount of people, in management, who have a technological aptitude.

Cons

Having to go through a 'dealer' was kind of a pain, but ultimately worth it considering our limited exposure to cloud backup services.

Industry leader in dedicated backup and disaster recovery appliances

2018-02-13

Pros

Datto alerts integrate into our ticketing system and sends notices to our NOC engineers for fast remediation.

Cons

Cost is usually a problem when we suggest them to clients and its a twofold problem. The monthly infinite cloud retention fees as well as the hardware itself can be quite exorbitant.

Use Datto for most of our clients and has made us look great on more than one occasion

2018-03-16

Fantastic backup system with easy use to bring up specific backups from any backup or ability to spin up entire servers in case of an emergency

Pros

Then was able to merge the data back onto their local servers so they were able to continue working the whole time.

Cons

Usually support is pretty good with finding the issue or replacing the product (though this does put the information at risk for that time being)

Great RMM software

2020-01-02

Datto has been good to me for my needs. Anytime that I have a question, someone is there to help.

Pros

Everything is imported and exported cleanly.

Cons

Right now there is not any support for MS Home products. This really hinders my company as we do a lot with MS Home clients.

Generations beyond tape backup solutions

2019-10-11

The extended features of not just file recovery but bare-metal recovery saving us server rebuilding time and virtualization allowing us to bring up a server temporarily from a back-up were amazing features.

Pros

Users can still access the server and backups continue to be completed.

Cons

It is very technical and not something a technical novice can install and use correctly. You need an experienced technician to setup and maintain.
