Datto, a provider of IT solutions delivered through managed service providers (MSPs), has made several announcements at DattoCon 2019.
Datto announced the availability of 20 products and enhancements at DattoCon19 on June 17-19 in San Diego, California. The largest open-ecosystem MSP-centric event in the world, in its seventh year, has attracted more than 2,900 attendees.
Research agency Gartner predicts that the overall external IT spend of small-to-medium business (SMB) will reach $1.1 trillion by 2020 and that SMBs invest a higher proportion of IT spend on external IT solutions and services than large enterprises.
Emily Glass, chief product officer of Datto, said: “These additions help MSPs address critical IT issues for clients while creating margin opportunities for partners to grow their managed services.”
Cloud Continuity for PCs
Cloud Continuity for PCs is an image-based, business continuity solution for PCs that utilizes Datto’s patent-pending technology. MSPs can now recover individual files or an entire PC image without the need for a local appliance, access backups of PC data, and virtualize backup images in the Datto Cloud.
SIRIS 4, a reliable BCDR solution, is optimized for MSP efficiency with improved backup resiliency and verification, enhanced virtualization performance, and increased device durability.
SIRIS 4 can virtualize 50 percent faster than previous devices and virtualize more agents per device.
