Acronis delivers the best data protection and disaster recovery for virtual, physical, mobile and cloud environments
Datto introduces the next generation of backup, disaster recovery and Business Continuity solutions. Using image-based backup allows Datto to take an image (ie: picture) of an entire system, not simply individual files or applications. This contributes to a superior Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and the ability to boot virtual machines. Image-based backup is an integral component of Intelligent Business Continuity.
Acronis vs Datto in our news:
2014 - Datto buys cloud backup service Backupify
Datto is buying Backupify so it can offer a full range of data recovery services, regardless of where that data sits. Both companies deal with data backup and recovery, but Backupify’s strength is protecting SaaS objects — data in Google Docs or Salesforce.com — while Datto focuses on protecting Windows and Linux applications running either on premises on physical servers or on local or private clouds. Backupify had raised just under $20 million from investors including Avalon Ventures, General Catalyst Partners, First Round Capital, Lowercase Capital, Symantec and others. Datto has raised $25 million in one round led by shared investor General Catalyst — it was former VMware CTO Steve Herrod’s first funding deal after he joined that VC firm.
