DattoCon16: Day Two Recap
Phew! DattoCon was in full swing with an action-packed agenda for over 700 MSPs in attendance this year in Nashville.
To start the day, CEO and founder, Austin McChord presented a morning keynote where he walked through several new product announcements - all designed with Datto partners in mind. There were several major products to discuss including the SIRIS 3 with updates galore from support for Mac agents to agentless backup to diskless restore - all on the newly launched SIRIS 3 platform. Along with SIRIS 3 is the SIRIS 3 X1, the first all-flash backup appliance which was also announced this morning. In a memorable Oprah moment, Austin announced that all partners would receive an X1 to take home. That’s right….you get an X1, you get an X1, and you get an X1!
Additional updates from the morning keynote included an updated Partner Portal, a new pricing model for cloud storage called Infinite Cloud Retention, DNA, and more support for the Microsoft O365 Backupify product.
Afternoon keynotes were led by Check Point Software Technologies and Cytracom. The day was rounded out with several technical track sessions and other sessions dedicated to sales and marketing topics for MSPs.
