Datto GENISIS 2 is a revolutionary tool that allows users to convert existing hardware into Datto SIRIS 2 appliances. A single GENISIS 2 USB stick will convert a wide array of third-party BDR devices and other hardware into appliances featuring the same award-winning software that runs on Datto SIRIS 2 devices.
Simply insert the GENISIS 2 USB stick in your existing hardware, and a simple, intuitive interface will guide you through the conversion process. In as little as 10 minutes, your hardware can be ready to register and start taking backups with Datto’s unique ShadowSnap agent and Inverse Chain Technology.
GENISIS 2 takes a legacy BDR or other machine currently delivering limited functionality and turns it into the kind of robust business continuity solution that will generate reliable monthly recurring revenue. Screenshot Verification of backups and both on and offsite virtualization are just a few of the capabilities that make converting your hardware with GENISIS 2 a smart move.
GENISIS 2 comes with a host of improvements, including improved hardware compatibility, easier network configuration, and updated core software to guarantee you get the same stellar user experience as if you’d purchased new SIRIS 2 hardware from Datto. Plus, every USB stick comes completely free of provisioning restrictions so you can use it as many times on as many machines as you want.
Once you’ve converted hardware with GENISIS 2 and log in for the first time, you’ll get precisely the same features and benefits as a SIRIS user with Datto hardware. These include Datto’s proven Inverse Chain Technology, Screenshot Backup Verification, Backup Insights and Hybrid Cloud Technology.

A single Datto GenISIS Upgrade Kit can be used to repurpose an unlimited number of hardware devices. The kit includes a comprehensive upgrade guide, bare metal restore guide and ShadowSnap installation guide. Every time you convert a system using the Datto GenISIS USB device, it will automatically connect to the Internet and self-update to the latest version, ensuring maximum compatibility and all the latest features.
When your device is converted to a Datto SIRIS, it's controlled through an easy to use responsive web interface that allows for quick access to critical stats, like up to the second usage numbers and transfer speeds. The restore wizard allows users to do a file restore, local virtualization, bare metal restore, and export backups with just a few clicks.
Complete backups mean complete protection. When hardware is converted to a Datto SIRIS, it uses image-based technology to capture whole system snapshots while preserving the ability to restore individual files and folders.
