Datto's Statement on ownCloud
Regarding ownCloud's recent news:
Datto was disappointed to see ownCloud, a long-standing technology partner, cease US operations last week. However, the status of ownCloud has no bearing on Datto nor the ongoing development of Datto Drive, our File Sync and Share service built upon the open source and enterprise versions of ownCloud 9.0. Datto has comprehensive rights to the use, development and distribution of the ownCloud source code and continues to invest significantly in the ongoing development of Datto Drive to target the specific file sharing requirements of small and mid-sized businesses across the globe.
Since launching Datto Drive in early May, Datto has already enrolled thousands of Datto Drive instances and continues to see a growing interest in an affordable, easy to use, and feature-rich service. Datto continues to offer the first terabyte for free for the first year for unlimited users. Going forward, Datto anticipates a continued strong relationship with the entire ownCloud community, and our partners and customers can rest assured in the ongoing evolution of Datto Drive as a leading file sharing service for small and mid-sized business.
