Rainy days and Mondays will always bring IT down! That is quite an understatement too! It was a typical busy Monday morning at the ACME Center, email is not working, compounded by horrible weather! Nobody can access their email. The IT team jumps in & determines there was a world-renowned windows update pushed out over the weekend that clobbered Exchange. This will take a while to sort out what was broke and more time to restore the files. Fortunately, for the ACME Center, they chose to purchase the Datto Siris Backup, Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity tool set. They determined the date and time that Exchange was corrupted & took the main server offline, spinning up a good virtualized image of the system. Business continued as usual until the team could restore the Exchange server and then bring everything back online.
This is a significant plus, as the Datto backups run hourly throughout the business day, with a cloud backup retention of 365 days on all files. The systems automatically tests each and every backup to ensure that it is bootable and ready to go online. An entire database or server can be back up and running in a matter of minutes, not hours or days. Then there is the Datto Alto system for the smaller organization with only one server.
