Datto Backup NAS Automatically Mirrors Data Onto Remote Servers

Illustration for article titled Datto Backup NAS Automatically Mirrors Data Onto Remote Servers

Although this 500GB Datto NAS backup seems to be targeted towards small businesses, most of us on Giz have enough data lying around our computers for it to be worthwhile to us as well. The Datto comes in two models, 100 and 500GB, and both automatically back up whatever data's on it to the Datto servers in case your house gets destroyed by Godzilla and the Cloverfield monster playing footsies.

If your unit goes down, a backup can be delivered in under 24 hours. The units are $399 and $599 respectively, and come with a $99 and $249 annual fee. At this price, it's cheaper than rigging up your own backup solution on Amazon's S3 storage, but it might be a little steep if you just want to keep your vacation pics and music safe. Unless of course your name is Christina Aguilera and those vacation pics are of yourself nude, and that music is your next album. We have a server for you to put those onto. [Datto]

Actually its not that bad. With the 500GB unit we will round trip mail it for you for free to backup your data quickly. The average home broadband connection can backup between 25 to 15 gigs a week. Remember than once the initial data transfer is complete only the changes need to be transmitted.

As our product is targeted for businesses most of them have much higher upstream speeds.

The real benefit with this product over an typical online storage provide comes from the fact that we can mail you a NEW NAS if you unit ever fails with your data already on it. This allows for a full recovery in under 24 hours. Which is important if you are a business.
