Norwalk, CT (June 27, 2016) – Datto, a provider of comprehensive data protection and business continuity solutions, today announced the company has been included in Gartner’s annual Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service report. Datto was among twenty providers that met inclusion criteria for this year’s Magic Quadrant out of potentially 250 providers of disaster recovery services. Datto was recognised in the Visionaries quadrant within the report, which is used by companies evaluating the DRaaS providers in the market.

According to Gartner, “in recent years, IT disaster recovery (DR) as a whole and DRaaS specifically have gained momentum for small and midsize organisations due to improved affordability and functionality. Wider adoption of DRaaS can be largely attributed to the proven viability of cloud-based solutions. Today Gartner estimates the size of the DRaaS market to be approximately $1.7 billion, with a related compound annual growth rate of approximately 25%.  By 2018, Gartner estimates that the size of the DRaaS market will exceed that of the market for more traditional subscription-based DR services.” 1

Providing data protection and business continuity solutions for over 50,000 companies around the world, Datto ensures business data and infrastructure is both secure and accessible continuously, no matter where that data is stored, whether it’s on-site or in the cloud.

The Datto flagship product is the SIRIS 3 data protection platform, the only complete DRaaS solution available through multiple deployment options, including a purpose built Datto physical appliance, a virtualised environment, or imaged for use on existing hardware. Business data can be backed up to a local device and synchronised with the secure 200+ petabyte Datto Cloud.

“The DRaaS market is growing rapidly and evolving as companies of all shapes and sizes with varying data configurations are looking to ensure their businesses avoid downtime,” said Pete Rawlinson, Chief Marketing Officer, Datto. “We feel being acknowledged as a visionary in this increasingly crowded industry is a testament to Datto’s focus and drive to keep businesses running, no matter what happens.” 

During DattoCon 2016, Datto’s recent partner conference, Datto released several new product updates, including an all-flash drive DRaaS device, the SIRIS 3 X1.
