Increased Volumes Drive Lower Costs, Datto Passes Savings Along to its Partners

Norwalk, Conn. (January 6, 2016) – Datto, an innovative provider of comprehensive data backup, recovery and business continuity solutions, today announced significant reductions on hardware prices for the entire flagship SIRIS suite. The price reductions reflect Datto’s success scaling the business in 2015, driving economies of scale and reduced component costs. These reduced costs are being passed along to Datto’s partners to provide greater value and drive higher volumes in 2016 and beyond. Datto is also taking this opportunity to introduce additional discounts linked to longer-term services commitments, reflecting the company’s increasing emphasis on services.

“Our partners have helped us grow to a size where we are now gaining significant economies of scale on the hardware production front,” said Austin McChord, Datto founder and CEO. “Our focus is on the bigger picture of helping our partners continue to grow and succeed, so we want to pass these savings along to help them be even more competitive. 

“We want to make it as easy as possible for our partners to offer Datto to their customers,” McChord continued, “so rather than offer limited-time promotional discounts throughout the year, we’ve decided to offer consistently lower pricing across the board on our flagship product line.”

According to Colin Blumenthal, Managing Director at Complete IT: “Datto’s new hardware pricing ensures that our clients gain an award winning technology, at an even more attractive price point. Whilst a number of other factors are usually considered before pricing, we believe that Datto’s new hardware pricing will further support growth of our clients protected by Datto’s technology.”

Datto’s family of appliances, software, and its purpose-built 160+ PB cloud provide end-to-end data protection everywhere business data lives – on premises in physical or virtual servers, in the cloud, or in SaaS applications such as Google Docs and Microsoft Office 365. The web-based management portal was built for managed service providers needing easy multi-tenant management, and US- and UK-based customer support is available 24/7/365.

“This is a game changer for ThinkGard and its clients,” said Paul Franks, Co-Founder and CEO at ThinkGard, a long time Datto partner.
