This article describes the features and specifications of Datto Private Nodes.
- Datto Private Node
What do you do if your client wants a hybrid cloud business continuity solution, but they don’t want to send their data to the Datto Cloud? Some clients in the financial, medical, legal, and government verticals must adhere to strict governance and compliance regulations that prevent them from replicating data to third party sites. Or, perhaps you have already invested in building a reliable and redundant datacenter in-house, and would like to continue to cut out the internet transfer speeds associated with digitally retrieving data from the cloud.
Datto offers a means for partners to provide cloud services to their end users using their own Datto-sold bare metal servers. The Datto Node is effectively a Datto Cloud server that has been produced for partner use. Instead of pairing or syncing your SIRIS devices to the Datto Cloud, you can target the Datto Node residing on your own network as an offsite storage repository for snapshots of your end user systems. While interacting with the Datto Node is entirely command-line based, it allows users to perform offsite file restores and virtualization just like a Datto Cloud server.
