Gartner’s Top 13 Backup And Recovery Software Leaders
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.
New to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant this year is Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Druva, which ranks among the middle of the pack for vision and in the bottom pack for execution. This year, Druva reached a $2 billion valuation along with a new $147 million funding round. The Druva Cloud Platform is a BaaS-based offering leveraging AWS infrastructure for storing and managing backup data. Its three products are Phoenix for server backup, inSync for SaaS applications and endpoint backup, and CloudRanger for cloud-native backup and DR. New capabilities over the past 12 months include a ransomware recovery service, Azure Active Directory integration, as well as the acquisition of sfApex to boost its Salesforce data protection capabilities.
Strength: Druva’s metadata pipeline and repository offers differentiated search and analytics capabilities that enable use cases such as e-discovery, ransomware detection and recovery, and storage optimization.
Weakness: The company has a limited enterprise data center presence. Druva’s support for non-AWS public cloud IaaS environments such as Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform is a work in progress, Gartner said.
