Data protection vendor Datto has appointed 30-year IT industry veteran Robert Petrocelli as chief technology officer.

Petrocelli – who joins Datto from Oracle where he served as a senior software architect, has previous experience which includes founding two successful businesses in the data storage and information management space.

Prior to Oracle, Petrocelli was the founder and CTO of GreenBytes, a company that provided inline deduplication data storage applications and cloud-scale IO-Offload systems. Oracle purchased GreenBytes in 2014.

And Petrocelli began his career as co-founder and CEO for Heartlab, a cardiac image and information management company that was purchased by AGFA in 2005.

Datto says Petrocelli will be be responsible for communicating the company’s technology vision and aligning strategy with its business goals to ensure the company continues to meet the evolving needs of the MSP market.

Datto currently serves more than 500,000 small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in more than 130 countries through partnerships with more than 15,000 MSPs.

Petrocelli will oversee and accelerate Datto’s ongoing product development.

“Datto finds its inspiration by exploring new and different approaches to solving the biggest challenges facing both MSPs and SMBs today, and Bob shares that same curiosity and drive,” says Tim Weller, CEO, Datto.

“Throughout his career, he has immersed himself in several different technologies and is fueled by the desire to learn and challenge the status quo. As an engineer by trade, Bob brings a unique balance of technology and business expertise to set a vision that will guide and protect Datto and its partners as the ecosystem matures.”

“When I was seeking my next opportunity, I wanted to be able to apply my technical knowledge along with my entrepreneurial experience to help an organisation and individuals achieve their goals. Datto is an organisation that continuously focuses on both people and improving its product portfolio in an effort to ensure partners are successful,” Petrocelli said.

“My vision is to lead Datto’s technical team as we continue to innovate, but also lead in data stewardship as the ecosystem grows as we must be more prepared for the technological challenges ahead.”
