Datto Named A Visionary In Gartner's Magic Quadrant
Datto was named a Visionary in Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). Datto was among 20 DRaaS providers that met inclusion criteria for this year’s Magic Quadrant out of 250 contenders. The report is used by companies evaluating the top DRaaS providers in the market.
According to Gartner, “in recent years, IT disaster recovery (DR) as a whole and DRaaS specifically have gained momentum for small and midsize organizations due to improved affordability and functionality. Wider adoption of DRaaS can be largely attributed to the proven viability of cloud-based solutions. Today Gartner estimates the size of the DRaaS market to be approximately $1.7 billion, with a related compound annual growth rate of approximately 25%. By 2018, Gartner estimates that the size of the DRaaS market will exceed that of the market for more traditional subscription-based DR services.”1
Datto’s proprietary Inverse Chain Technology was mentioned as a key strength for Datto within the report. An innovation that replaces traditional backups with asynchronous mirroring, Inverse Chain Technology gives users a more efficient backup, helping companies significantly accelerate data recovery.
Datto’s 24/7/365 support was cited as an additional strength in the Magic Quadrant. With Datto’s unique “Direct to Tech” support approach, Datto customers are instantly connected to a trained Datto technician.
