Datto Announces New Products and Services Focused on Enabling Partner Growth and Profitability at Fifth Annual Conference
DENVER (DattoCon) – June 6, 2017 – Datto, Inc. the leading provider of total data protection solutions for businesses around the world, today announced an exciting new range of products and service upgrades to its business continuity, networking and SaaS Protection product lines, to further support the needs of its 6,000 MSP (managed service provider) partners. The new products support Datto’s ongoing commitment to total data protection, ensuring business data is secure and accessible - no matter where it lives.
Datto CEO Austin McChord announced Datto’s latest market leading solutions during his keynote presentation which focused on product innovation, performance and ease of management for Datto partners. McChord highlighted how Datto’s technology provides MSPs with the most innovative managed service solutions targeting small-to-medium businesses (SMBs). The new products and services include an expansion to Datto’s flagship all-flash SIRIS 3X line, an all new ALTO 3 device targeting smaller environments, a new architecture for Datto SaaS Protection services, updates to the new Datto Networking portfolio, and significant enhancements to Datto’s Partner Portal.
“Our customers rely on us to provide them with uninterrupted access to data on-site, in
transit or in the cloud,” stated Dale Shulmistra, President, Invenio IT. “The reality is that IT is not an SMB’s primary area of expertise, but they are savvy business owners who understand how much they could lose without access to their data and connectivity. They want to work with a managed service provider that offers proven solutions, to protect their data so they never experience downtime. Datto’s solutions provide that peace of mind.”
In addition to new products, features and service updates, Datto today announced the official launch of its global marketing automation platform, MarketNow. Available for free to all Datto MSPs, MarketNow enables partners to utilize pre-written content to create campaigns, social media posts, web pages and branded collateral. Powered by MindMatrix, the platform does not require extensive training, nor extensive marketing experience. Since its pre-launch in March, the platform has been used by over 1,600 Datto partners.
Datto’s new product and feature updates announced today across its business continuity, networking and SaaS Protection solutions, include:
Business Continuity: With the most comprehensive BCDR product lineup available, including devices ranging from 500GB to 120TB, Datto has made updates to both its SIRIS and ALTO products. The completely new SIRIS 3 X Professional line is offered as 4, 8 and 12TB 1U rack-mounted servers. Additionally, the S3X4 all-flash 4TB device joins the S3X1 and S3X2 models released last year. Datto’s most popular device, the ALTO, also received a makeover with new hardware and an SSHD. The new ALTO 3 offers double the performance for local and cloud-based backup and restore than its predecessor and is still available with no upfront charge. Updated SIRIS 3 software includes a new Fast Failback™ feature that allows MSPs to spin-up a virtual machine (VM) with a rescue agent. This agent forks the initial backup chain, providing restore from any agent recovery point, while requiring significantly less space than alternative solutions and returning business to normal operation faster than competitive alternatives. In addition to reducing business downtime, SIRIS 3 now provides hardware independent restore upon virtualization, additional Cloud VHDx exports and an improved setup process, all designed to maintain Datto’s position as the most reliable BCDR on the market.
Networking: In January, Datto announced their new Datto Networking line, the first networking product line designed from the ground up specifically for MSPs. Today, Datto announced comprehensive updates across the line including QoS, Layer 7 Deep Packet Inspection, expanded VoIP support and cloud management capabilities to the existing edge router, access points and switches. Datto also introduced an extension to the networking portfolio with the planned release of an intelligent, cloud managed power strip including an embedded access point. Datto Managed Power will enable MSPs to more effectively manage their customer environments with features such as remote power cycling of individual outlets, scheduled reboots, reporting outlet wattage; all managed through the Datto Partner Portal.
SaaS Protection: Datto announced a new architecture for its market leading Datto SaaS Protection service to more effectively manage, restore and export critical data in Office 365 and G Suite environments. The new architecture enables point-in-time back-up functionality for Office 365 with dramatically improved export and restore speeds. The company also introduced robust discovery search and an enhanced user experience, making it intuitive and responsive to ease customer onboarding. In addition, Datto introduced the Datto SaaS Protection Node, an onsite storage repository for backups from the cloud - providing new options for SaaS backup retention in regulated or sensitive industries.
Bringing it altogether is the Datto Partner Portal, which allows the company’s MSP partners to purchase, educate, manage and market products all in one location. Several new dashboards were announced and are now available, including a device status compressed view, networking status page, SaaS status page and mobile status page - ensuring Datto’s partners always have the most relevant information at their fingertips.
Datto will be hosting a webinar on June 13, 2017 to recap its product announcements. Registration for the event is available here.
