What are the Datto-Recommended Power Settings for Windows Virtualizations?



What power settings should my virtualizations use during a Disaster Recovery scenario or Disaster Recovery test to ensure maximum performance and stability?


  • Datto SIRIS
  • Datto ALTO
  • Recovery Launchpad


For Windows virtualizations, Datto recommends using the High Performance power mode with the Sleep and Hibernate modes disabled. You can change this setting in the virtualization's Power Options in the Windows Control Panel. The virtualization will retain the setting until the next time you unmount it.
