Cloud Backup And Recovery
Last year’s Cloud Applications technology category has been refined into several more specific technologies. Here Hewlett-Packard came out on top in the crowded cloud backup and recovery technology category, beating industry heavyweights such as Microsoft, IBM and CA, and challengers such as Mozy (owned by EMC) and Carbonite. HP outscored its competitors in technical, support and financial satisfaction. While the established companies also scored well in partner support, survey newcomers Mozy and Carbonite did better on the technical side. If those companies improve their channel game, watch out.
