2015: Datto's Year In Review
To say 2015 was a big year for Datto would be putting it lightly. Between company growth, expansion to Australia, a Series B investment round and the release of new technology, Datto is better than ever. Here’s a look back at a few things that made this such an incredible year for Datto’s employees and partners.
-2015 started off with the onboarding of Backupify to the Datto family. Datto’s already impressive product offerings got even better with cloud-to-cloud backup protection from Backupify, further protecting business data no matter where it lives.
-In January, CEO Austin McChord was named to the Forbes 30
Under 30 List, which honors the best and brightest leaders under 30 years old.
-DattoCon, Datto’s partner conference, which took place in June was more successful than ever. During the event, Datto had five major announcements, including the announcement of Datto DNA, Backupify for Office 365, File Sync & Share through ownCloud, the Datto Linux Agent and an updated Partner Portal. We’re already looking forward to DattoCon16 USA with our keynote speaker Steve Wozniak.
-In July we held our first Datto Partner Conference in London. This event included a keynote presentation from Austin, a live disaster demo, technical training, a Q&A with Austin and partner awards recognising Datto’s partners across the region. Next year’s DattoCon EMEA (12th-13th October) will be bigger and better than ever.
-Datto expanded into Australia, allowing Datto to partner with MSPs and VARs throughout Australia and New Zealand, helping them to protect their customer’s data.In addition to Datto’s new Sydney office, Datto opened an Australian data centre bringing the total number of Datto data centre to five (with a sixth coming in early 2016).
-In November, Datto announced a new round of funding with $75 million from Technology Crossover Ventures. This new round will allow Datto to enter more regions faster as well as to increase the value of what Datto is able to deliver to partners.
-Datto welcomed some new board members, which will help Datto as we grow, putting even more smart, strategic people on our board.
-Datto won more than 60 of awards globally in 2015 including product awards, best in channel awards, presentation awards at industry events and more!
