Datto’s Total Data Protection platform is increasingly being adopted by managed service providers (MSPs) around the world. In Q2 2015, Datto signed new distribution agreements across Europe, partnering with Portland in Benelux, Upstream in the Nordics, BeMSP in France and Achab in Italy. The Datto Cloud is also expanding globally with the addition of a new data centre in Australia.
With increasing demand in the UK, Datto held its first EMEA Datto Partner Conference in London this July to address the specific interests of its UK-based partners.
According to Paul Tomlinson, Managing Director of UK-based Mirus IT, “We evaluated a number of options and Datto came out on top when matched against all other providers. It is a channel-focused business that really cares about its partners.”
Datto was recognised in Computerworld’s “Best Places to Work in IT” list for the second year in a row. Additionally, CRN Magazine included Datto’s Christine Gassman and Samantha Ciaccia to its 2015 “Women of the Channel” list.
“Q2 was one of the biggest quarters in the history of our company,” said Austin McChord, founder and CEO of Datto. “The new product innovations released this quarter, and our continued international expansion, set the stage for even more good things to come.”
