Pax8 announced a strategic partnership with Datto Inc. Through the new partnership, Pax8 will provide the full suite of Datto’s business continuity solutions worldwide, including backup and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) offerings, managed networking solutions, and cloud-to-cloud (C2C) backup services.

“We are excited to offer MSPs a one-stop destination for all three of Datto’s business lines through our new strategic alignment,” said Ryan Walsh, senior vice president of Partner Solutions at Pax8. “The partnership with Datto will provide MSPs worldwide with enablement, support, and access to our dedicated Cloud Solutions Advisors, billing, and provisioning.
