In the event of a physical loss, ransomware, hardware failure, or other disasters, Datto provides multiple recovery and restore options whether onsite or remote with both all-in-one backup and recovery solutions designed to empower MSPs with best-in-class continuity for their small and medium business (SMB) clients.

Last year in Q4, over 80 per cent of ransomware attacks targeted SMBs, with an average business interruption of 20 days following successful attacks, which can be crippling for a smaller organisation.

To survive attacks, SMBs must have access to business continuity solutions that can quickly restore their data and operations to prevent significant downtime and business interruptions. Business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) is an established backbone of any ransomware recovery strategy.


Datto’s all-in-one complete BCDR solution with immutable backups and the secure Datto Cloud makes SIRIS 5 one of the best last lines of defence against cyber attacks, restoring business operations for SMBs within minutes.

With SIRIS 5, partners can expect:

  • Performance: Up to four times more performance and an upgraded RAM and CPU that provides faster disaster recovery performance than ever before.
  • Reliability: Industry-standard server hardware, redundant power supplies, reliable enterprise SAS HDDs, HDD RAID, and advanced diagnostics for improved reliability.
  • Simplicity: Streamlined appliance options consolidate the best features to optimise performance, plus create an easier selection and upgrade process for partners.
  • The SIRIS 5 appliance will run on purpose-built certified hardware powered by Dell. Dell’s world-class server hardware provides the industry-standard in reliability, serviceability, global reach, and supply chain resilience.

Each SIRIS 5 device is set to undergo stepped-up comprehensive quality testing at a Datto facility and is expected to be backed by Dattos five-year warranty. Coupled with Dattos renowned 24/7/365 support, Datto partners will have access to a robust and reliable business continuity solution.

Bob Petrocelli, chief technology officer at Datto, added that an MSPs best defence against evolving ransomware threats is a high-performing and reliable BCDR solution.

“SIRIS 5 is Dattos most powerful and flexible solution yet.

“With its cloud-first architecture and integrated security, the SIRIS platform was created for MSPs, delivering an essential all-in-one solution for backup and recovery.

“We’re proud to release our flagship SIRIS 5 product which will deliver next-level reliability and performance when it matters most.”

According to Razwan Ahmad, CEO of N.O.C. Systems LLC, a Connecticut-based Datto MSP partner, the number one concern for their clients is what a cyber attack would mean for their business.

“We need strong backup and recovery solutions in place if all else fails to ensure they’re up and running with minimal disruption.

“With SIRIS 5, we know we’re covered."

“Dattos world-class technology and support enables us to protect our clients’ data and livelihoods with the strongest solution,” Ahmad added.
