Datto's product and engineering teams have rebuilt the Backupify platform from the ground up. We redesigned the back-end infrastructure as a node-based infrastructure, which allows for much faster search, export, and restore speeds.
What can you expect during the cutover process?
While this initial backup occurs, we will continue to back up your account in both our Classic (1.0) and 2.0 products in parallel. Once the initial backup is complete, we will stop backing up in the Classic product, but your data will be kept there for archival purposes.
How can I access my archived Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 1.0 data?
From the Dashboard, Click the platform (O365/G Suite) drop-down menu and select the Classic option.
What is my data retention plan after the cutover?
The cutover will set you to a one-year time-based retention plan; Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection will store your backed up data for one year. You can adjust the retention period as needed.
Where is my data stored?
- Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection classic stores your historical data in the datacenter you chose when you first onboarded.
- Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 will store your data in the data center you select at the time of cutover.
How do I use the Knowledge Base after the cutover?
- Use the Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection section to troubleshoot legacy Backupify or Datto SaaS Protection issues.
- Use the Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 section to troubleshoot issues after the cutover is complete.
- There are also specific subsections for Office 365 and G Suite-specific issues.
How long is the cutover process?
Cutover times vary depending on the node, data size, and throttling that may be imposed by the service provider (Google or Microsoft). It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
What do you need to do?
