This article describes the Secondary Replication feature for Datto appliances.
- Datto SIRIS

Secondary Datacenter Locations
Datacenter replication is determined based on the appliance's geographic location. It is not possible to manually change the target datacenter. The secondary data center for each location is as follows:
- Canada → Calgary
- UK → Iceland
- Germany → Iceland
Secondary replication within the United States is shared between Datto's bi-coastal datacenters.
- To protect your data from malicious deletion, any replicated backup points deleted through the device UI (either through the Manage Recovery Points page or as a result of retention activity) will only be removed from the local appliance and its primary datacenter.
- All backups replicated to secondary datacenters are stored as daily snapshots, and are retained at the secondary location for 90 days.
Managing Secondary Replication on your Datto Appliance
This feature is enabled by default and can only be toggled on or off. To manage the Secondary Replication setting, access the GUI of your Datto appliance. From the device home page, click Configure → Device Settings. You can find the Secondary Replication toggle in the location shown in Figure 1.
