Veeam won the gold medal for execution on Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions thanks to the Veeam Availability Suite, which includes Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE for backup monitoring and analytics. The company, who ranks fifth for vision on the Magic Quadrant, provides additional add-on products to the suite including Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, Veeam Backup for AWS and Veeam Availability Orchestrator. Veeam was acquired by private equity firm Insight Partners in March for $5 billion. At its VeeamON 2020 conference in June, the company also launched a slew of new AWS, Microsoft Teams and NetApp products.
Strength: Veeam Universal License allows customers to repurpose the same licenses when they switch hypervisors, migrate from physical to virtual or cloud environment, or from on-premise to cloud.
Weakness: Gartner said some customers report large-scale Veeam deployments are complex to manage due to the deployment typically comprising of multiple backup servers, proxy servers, mount servers, agents and backup repositories.
