Inc. magazine ranked Datto number 38 on its 31st annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
Datto has grown exponentially since its launch in 2007, increasing its partner base to include more than 4,000 VAR, MSP and IT Service Providers across North America and Europe. Datto’s Founder and CEO, Austin McChord, credits Datto’s industry leading technology and a passionate staff for the company’s 5,554% revenue growth from 2008-2011.
Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
“Datto started in a basement in 2007 with the objective to develop a better backup solution. We’ve come a long way since then; our solution is now used across the globe by thousands of customers to ensure their critical business data is backed up,” said McChord. “We firmly believe we have something special here at Datto, and we are focused and committed to our mission to provide the world’s most reliable and advanced backup and disaster recovery solutions.“
The 2012 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 21 to November 15 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history.
