Datto, Inc., an award-winning provider of hardware-based on- and off-site backup, disaster recovery (BDR), and intelligent business continuity (IBC) solutions, announced today that it has won the ASCII Boston Success Summit’s ‘Best New Product’ Award for Datto ALTO, a new hybrid cloud BDR solution designed specifically for small businesses.
The award, presented to the technology company deemed to have the best new product for the IT industry, is voted on by the event’s attendees – both IT vendors and solution providers focused on the small to midsize business (SMB) market – and is presented on the final day of the event.
Launched on April 16, 2013, Datto ALTO is a cost-effective and scalable BDR solution that provides companies with as few as one employee with a hybrid cloud platform for Hybrid Virtualization of servers and workstations. By utilizing both on- and off-site backup, end users have a way to ensure their data is recoverable regardless of any disaster scenario.
“I was truly blown away by the channel’s response to Datto ALTO at ASCII Boston,” says Austin McChord, founder and CEO of Datto. “It is incredibly exciting to see Partners expressing so much enthusiasm for something we have all worked so hard to bring to the market. This is only just the beginning; we cannot wait to see what partners do once they get Datto ALTO in their hands.”
The award reinforces that SMBs generate more data than ever, and because the value of that data is increasing, so are the risks of data loss. With fewer resources to manage and protect data, Datto ALTO launched to address a largely underserved market by allowing MSPs to make the BDR investment fiscally manageable for SMBs.
