Data is stored in Datto’s secure, purpose-built cloud, now with more than 200 petabytes. 

Expanding Datto’s Solutions

Datto added several noteworthy features to its solutions in the first few months of 2016. Expanding Datto’s protection for data across SaaS applications, Datto’s Microsoft Office 365 backup solution now includes backup capabilities for OneDrive. Backup for SharePoint will be released in Q2, 2016.

Increasing the flexibility and scalability of Datto’s popular SIRIS, the company recently introduced agentless backup.
