Channel-only Datto, the provider of hybrid cloud-based backup, disaster recovery (BDR) and business-continuity solutions, has honored a handful of partners and vendors with awards.
The honors were handed out at its recently held 2014 Datto Partner Conference in Las Vegas.
Awarded in seven categories, Datto partners were evaluated based on both metrics and superlative performance. The Datto Hall of Fame, also a new addition, honors the company’s earliest and longest standing partners since inception in 2007.
“Datto is channel-only, so it’s critical that our partners have success using our solution, which means our partners come first in everything we do," said Rob Rae, Datto’s vice president of business development. “Our success is directly attributed to our partners so being able to recognize them and our conference sponsors is a great way to honor their achievements and dedication to focus more on business continuity."

(innovator of the year); River Run Computers (community partner of the year); Mirazon and Hilltop Consultants (co-winners, partner of the year); Liptak Dental (largest Datto fleet); Flexible Systems (breakout partner of the year); Results Technology (fastest growing partner); and Complete I.T. (fastest growing EMEA partner).
