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.
Niche Player: Arcserve
Arcserve ranks among the bottom of the pack for both execution and vision on the Magic Quadrant. Arcserve’s backup portfolio includes: Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP); Arcserve Backup for tape support; Arcserve Appliances Secured by Sophos; Arcserve Cloud Direct; and Arcserve UDP Cloud Hybrid Secured by Sophos for cloud-based backup, off-site retention and DR. It also includes Arcserve Cloud Backup for Office 365 Secured by Sophos for cloud-to-cloud protection of Microsoft Office 365 email, files and SharePoint sites. Arcserve recently launched Arcserve UDP 7.0 to provide support for Nutanix AHV and Microsoft OneDrive.
Strength: Gartner said arcserve offered the lowest socket-based license pricing among all vendors evaluated in the market in 2019.
Weakness: Arcserve UDP offers limited capabilities for detecting ransomware attacks on the backup copy and ransomware recovery and testing. Customers that require tape support must separately install Arcserve Backup alongside UDP.
