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.
Leader: Veritas Technologies
Veritas Technologies ranks fourth for both execution and vision on the Magic Quadrant. The Santa, Clara, Calif.-based company’s backup portfolio consists of its NetBackup software, NetBackup Appliances, NetBackup CloudPoint, Flex Appliance and Backup Exec. Veritas has several customers that have deployed NetBackup to protect multiple petabytes and more than 10,000 virtual machines in a single environment. Last week, the company expanded its enterprise-focused NetBackup with the inclusion of new cloud capabilities previously requiring separate licenses, and significantly boosted its ability to counter ransomware.
Strength: NetBackup CloudPoint protects virtual instances deployed in AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform by integrating with the native snapshot capabilities of these public cloud offers.
Weakness: Veritas has external dependency for SaaS backup, with data protection requirements for Office 365, Salesforce and G Suite delivered via a third-party SaaS backup vendor.
