Gartner’s Top 13 Backup And Recovery Software Leaders

Mark Haranas

From Veeam, Rubrik and Commvault to Dell Technologies and IBM, here’s where the top 13 backup and recovery software leaders rank in Gartner’s new Magic Quadrant.

Challenger: Arcserve

Arcserve ranks among the middle of the pack for execution and near the bottom of the pack for vision on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant. It is key to note that Minneapolis, Minn.-based Arcserve merged with StorageCraft this year which expanded its portfolio to include scale-out storage and data protection capabilities such as SaaS backup. Arcserve offers its Unified Data Protection (UDP), Backup, Appliances, UDP Cloud Direct, Arcserve UDP Cloud Hybrid Secured by Sophos, and Arcserve Cloud Backup for Office 365. Arcserve recently unveiled its X series Appliances, an integrated backup, disaster recovery and security solution.

Strength: Gartner said Arcserve has one the lowest socket-based license prices among all vendors in the market. Additionally, Arcserve partners with Sophos to offer appliances with built-in malware detection capabilities.

Weakness: Arcserve UDP doesn’t integrate with public cloud snapshot APIs from Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Microsoft Azure VMs, or Google Compute Engine. It also doesn’t support backup of PaaS environments such as AWS, Amazon Relational Database Service, or Azure SQL.
