Introducing Cloud Continuity for PCs
We are pleased to announce that the first product from our Direct To Cloud (DTC) beta, Cloud Continuity For PCs, is now available for purchase. Cloud Continuity for PCs is an image-based, all-in-one business continuity solution that utilizes Datto’s new patent-pending technology to take continuous backups and protect critical PC data from ransomware attacks, lost or stolen devices, and accidental data deletion.
Licenses are available on a per-seat, per-month basis and include cloud storage and Time-Based Retention (TBR). To get started, you can purchase Cloud Continuity licenses directly from the Datto store in the Partner Portal or learn more here.
In the next few months, Cloud Continuity For PCs will also be available for partners to trial as part of our Not-For-Resale (NFR) program.
What it means for beta users
With the release of Cloud Continuity, the Direct to Cloud beta program has officially ended, and you will no longer be able to register new DTC agents. However, existing beta agents will continue to take backups until September 30, 2019. After that date, all beta snapshots will prune from our cloud. If you have data which requires preservation, please ensure that it is backed up to another location before September 30, 2019.
Existing DTC beta agents will not convert to Cloud Continuity agents. If you wish to deploy Cloud Continuity for PCs, you must perform the following steps:
1. Uninstall the beta agent from all of your enrolled systems.
2. Reboot the protected machines.
2. Download, install and register the new agent by following the process described in Cloud Continuity for PCs: Getting Started.
For International Users
At launch, Cloud Continuity will be available in the United States only. We are actively preparing Cloud Continuity for release in other regions, and we will have more detailed information to share in the coming months. Partners outside of the U.S. will also be able to trial Cloud Continuity in our the NFR program by the time the beta program officially ends.
To our beta participants...
Last but not least, we want to extend a BIG thank you to all of our partners who have helped shape our Cloud Continuity roadmap and who continue to help us advance our products further. We invite you to keep sending us your feedback.
