Gartner’s Data Center Backup And Recovery Magic Quadrant Leaders
CRN breaks down the 11 market leaders, including Commvault, Dell Technologies, Rubrik and Veeam, who made Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions.
Gartner elevated Acronis from a ‘Niche Player’ in 2019 to a ‘Visionary’ in its 2020 Magic Quadrant. The Switzerland-based company ranks among the middle of the pack for vision on the Magic Quadrant and near the bottom for execution. Its Cyber Backup platform provides an integrated data protection and security solution that covers on-premises, cloud and edge environments. Acronis offers a disaster-recovery-as-a-service offering as a part of the Acronis Cyber Cloud for Enterprise. In July, Acronis acquired DeviceLock to enforce privacy at the device level and prevent threat actors from accessing data on an organizations system.
Strength: Acronis’ products and documentation are localized in 25 languages, the highest number among all vendors on the Magic Quadrant, according to Gartner.
Weakness: Acronis trails its competitors in providing comprehensive data protection capabilities for public cloud, hyperconverged infrastructure and network-attached storage (NAS) environments.
