Datto plans to inspire business growth and honor its top partners through a new awards program that would surely get the approval of Eddie Vedder and Axl Rose.

The new Datto Partner Rockstar Awards are broken into quarterly and yearly award categories and are comprised of a combination of metric results and superlative awards. Written submissions for the superlative awards will be accepted quarterly and must be submitted via email to partnerawards@dattobackup.com.

“Our partners are a huge contributor to Datto’s success," said Datto CEO Austin McChord. “We felt it was time to start publicly recognizing partners that are dedicated to Datto and are accomplishing outstanding growth within their own businesses. The awards program is another way for us to strengthen relationships with our partners and encourage their success."

The Partner Rockstar Awards are broken into the following quarterly award categories: Revenue Rockstar (metric); Fastest Growing Partner (metric); New Rockstar on the Block (metric); Superior Service (superlative); and Business Continuity Champion (superlative). Yearly categories are: Partner of the Year (metric); Fastest Growing Partner of the Year (metric); Distributor of the Year (metric); Datto Academy Valedictorian (metric); and Datto Ambassadors (superlative).

All Datto Partners are automatically entered for the metric-based awards. The company will pull data from its internal systems to determine the winners in each category. Written submissions are required for the superlative awards and will be reviewed and judged by Datto’s management staff.

Datto is a provider of backup, disaster recovery (BDR) and intelligent business continuity (IBC) solutions. The company supports 5,000 channel partners throughout North America and Europe.
