Datto SaaS Protection – Versioning and Snapshots
Datto SaaS Protection supports versioning of the backed up data. Each time that your data is backed up, a “snapshot” of the data is saved. Each snapshot contains all of the information needed to restore your data to the exact state it was in at the time of the snapshot. Stored snapshots will be consolidated according to the following retention schedule:
- Datto SaaS Protection takes 3 daily backups and retains them for 30 days.
- After 30 days, the system saves one of those three daily backups per user.
- After 90 days, the system saves one weekly backup per user.
- After one year, Datto SaaS Protection saves one monthly backup per user.
There are 2 types of Data Retention Plan
- Infinite – Forever
- 1 Y Time Based – 1 Year
Exports and Restores from a Snapshot
Datto SaaS Protection supports Restoring and Exporting from a selected snapshot. Once you select a snapshot to browse, all restores and exports will occur as if they are initiated from the date of the snapshot.
