Small Business Protection. Redefined.

Carolina Computer Concepts announces a revolutionary business continuity/data protection product and service to the small business market.

Released just one week ago, the Datto ALTO device is taking the small business market in a big way.  Until now small businesses found that getting truly enterprise level business data protection came at a price that was out of reach for many.  Small businesses have turned to less effective forms of data backup which do not provide the level of protection they need.

Now available from Carolina Computer Concepts (a Datto Partner) comes the Datto ALTO.  This business continuity solution is geared specifically for the small business in every way… including price.  Here are just some of the features of the new ALTO device:

Small Business Doesn’t Mean Small Protection

Just because a business is small, doesn’t mean that their data is any less susceptible to a disaster. Every business can benefit from the protection that intelligent business continuity offers, but some may not be able to afford it. Built on the backbone of the Datto ShadowSnap agent, Datto ALTO is an advanced backup, disaster recovery and business continuity solution that is easy to use, cost effective, and provides an insurance policy again costly downtime. Datto ALTO is the only solution in the Channel to provide affordable intelligent business continuity to the small business space. With Datto ALTO, users can significantly decrease the likelihood of interruptions in business continuity by providing a unique feature-set previously unavailable to the small business, such as image-based backup and Hybrid VirtualizationTM technology.

Image-Based Backup

Image-based backup is the backbone of Datto ALTO and adds significant usability in disaster scenarios. With imagebased backup, users no longer need to pick and choose what files are backed up or worry about saving the most recent draft to a network share, backup folder, or cloud service. Rather, the entire system is automatically backed up seamlessly, unknown to the user, at granular intervals. The system images, or snapshots, are then saved on the local device and mirrored into the cloud, providing a high level of redundancy in your backups across multiple locations.

Screenshot Backup Verification

Datto ALTO includes automated virtualization testing software. Screenshot backup verification takes the hassle and worry out of checking backups. Once a day Datto ALTO will take a backup and virtualize it locally, not attached to the network. Once running it will snap an image of the login screen then check that image to make sure it is valid. After the image is checked it will be prepared in an email and sent out as an alert.

Bare Metal Restore (BMR)

Datto ALTO includes brand new BMR technology from Datto. This breakthrough technology allows users to perform bare metal restores to dissimilar hardware over the clients network reliability and securely. Starting from an imaged USB thumb drive the user will follow an intuitive GUI from selecting machines to automatic partitioning. The process cuts down restore time dramatically while also improving the advanced options for users looking to customize their new machine.


With low upfront cost for the local device, a low monthly service cost, and even lower cost/GB cloud storage, Datto ALTO is an affordable solution that can be easily implemented into any small business environment.

How affordable is the ALTO?  As low as $99 a month!!! (as of this writing).  This is not just data backup, this is complete business continuity with instant offsite virtualization of your Server or Workstation.  For less than the price of a premium cup of coffee a day, a small business can completely protect their business data. Now that is amazing!
