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.

Niche Player: Unitrends

The Burlington, Mass.-based company offers the Unitrends Backup Software, Recovery Series Backup Appliance and Spanning Backup for SaaS application backup. Over the past year, Unitrends launched UniView, a platform that offers central management of multiple Recovery Series appliances and SaaS applications, and has continued to improve security and analytics capabilities on its software platform. Unitrends ranks near the bottom for both execution and vision on Gartner’s backup and recovery software Magic Quadrant.

Strength: Unitrends offers unlimited retention of backup data with no egress charges, and optional disaster recovery through its Unitrends Cloud data centers, at significantly lower costs when compared to public cloud providers, according to Gartner.

Weakness: The company doesn’t support backup of Oracle RAC Database instances, and offers limited capabilities for backing up SAP HANA and NoSQL databases like MongoDB and Cassandra. Additionally, Unitrends does not integrate with snapshot APIs provided by AWS EC2, Azure VMs or Google Cloud.
