Pros and Cons
  • "It stayed the same for a long time, which makes it easy to set up and easy to work with."
  • "Technical support was superior when it was owned independently."

What is our primary use case?

We are a reseller and primarily use Datto ALTO for disaster recovery.

What is most valuable?

It is extremely simple to use, set up, and manage.

They do a good job of it. 

The interface is very easy.

It stayed the same for a long time, which makes it easy to set up and easy to work with.

What needs improvement?

Technical support was superior when it was owned independently. They have merged with another company, and as your company grows in size, your technical support suffers. That's just the way it is. As a result, they could improve their technical support.

For how long have I used the solution?

We are using the latest version of Datto ALTO. It's up-to-date.

We used it as recently as today for 45 to 50 customers.

It is deployed both on-premises and on the cloud.
