The Top 12 Leader Data Center Backup And Recovery Vendors
The data center backup and recovery market is rapidly changing as customers are demanding simpler, more agile and cost-optimized solutions, according to Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions.
By 2022, 40 percent of organizations will replace their backup applications from what they deployed as early as 2018, according to the IT research firm. Larger vendors are no longer viewed as being safe choices, said Gartner, as customers are willing to deploy multiple backup solutions to best match the needs of what is being protected.
With the massive growth in data, new applications and deployment models are growing. Ease of deployment, instant recovery and greater ease for administrators are key requirements in the market today. The backup and recovery market is consolidating features such as data replication, cloud disaster recovery automation and orchestration, and intercloud data mobility into a single platform.
Here are the 12 market-leading vendors in the space that made Gartner’s 2019 Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions Magic Quadrant, along with assessments of each company’s strengths and weaknesses in the space.
