Gartner’s Data Center Backup And Recovery Magic Quadrant Leaders

Mark Haranas

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.

Leader: Rubrik

Rubrik won the gold medal for vision on the Magic Quadrant and placed among the middle of the pack for execution. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company’s portfolio is the Rubik Cloud Data Management (RCDM) for core backup; SaaS-based Polaris platform for centralized management and ransomware remediation and data classification; and Mosaic for NoSQL workload protection. In March, Rubik tapped former ServiceNow chief marketing officer Dan Rogers as its first-ever president to lead its go-to-market operations. New RCDM innovation includes native continuous data protection capabilities for VMware and improved data tiering to Microsoft Azure.

Strength: Polaris Radar monitors the backup environment for anomalies by applying machine learning models that are continuously refined, while backup data is stored in an immutable format to increase resilience against ransomware.

Weakness: RCDM requires a four-node VM cluster to be deployed in the public cloud to support granular protection and recovery of applications and databases hosted in public cloud infrastructure, which increases the total cost of ownership of running backup in the public cloud.
