Datto has announced the commercial availability of Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure, a comprehensive business continuity and disaster recovery solution that protects MSPs and their clients’ data in the public cloud.
Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure is architected to leverage the secure Datto Cloud to ‘address a critical and unmet need for MSPs--the added protection and recovery of data in the public cloud through multi-cloud replication’. This comprehensive data protection, management, and streamlined recovery is delivered at a predictable cost and without the need for MSPs to piece together individual technologies or depend solely on Microsoft’s data backup services.
Microsoft Azure provides reliable cloud services for building, deploying, and managing intelligent applications. While Microsoft is responsible for the security of the physical hosts, network, and data centers / centres, its Shared Responsibility Model states that the customer is responsible to secure and protect all applications, data, and endpoints contained within Azure. In this model, MSPs carry the responsibility to ensure they have reliable business continuity solutions in place to protect their clients’ workloads across on-premises servers and the public cloud.
Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure performs more frequent backups than other solutions and reduces the risk of data loss or prolonged system downtime due to ransomware and public cloud outages. Further, MSPs can now eliminate single-cloud risk by having the ability to restore data from either Microsoft Azure or the immutable, private Datto Cloud as secondary system protection. With this solution, MSPs can offer their clients the scalability and efficiency of the public cloud while feeling confident their clients’ cloud data is backed up and can be recovered within minutes – even if there is an Azure outage.
