The ink is still hot off this announcement on Monday morning… Datto said that it will be going private with Kaseya for $6.2 billion. The deal was funded by a consortium led by private equity firm Insight Partners. 

Interestingly, we were just at our ChannelNEXT event a few days ago with DATTO and we had no indication. Just shows what can happen when you wake up on a Monday morning :o).

What will this mean for channel partners?  We will be digging into this over the coming weeks. Stay Tuned!
