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.

Gartner Methodology

To make Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions, vendors need to generate – excluding implementation or managed services -- greater than $50 million from backup and recovery sales or more than $25 million in subscription or license revenue over the past four quarters. Additionally, the vendor must have at least 100 full-time employees and serve an installed base of at least 1,000 customers.

The vendor’s qualifying backup and recovery solution must focus on protecting enterprise environments running in the data center, which can be either a traditional center or a colocation facility. Protection of cloud-based IaaS, PaaS and SaaS workloads and remote sites is seen as an extension to these core capabilities.

Vendors added to this year’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions are Druva, Micro Focus and Zerto. Actifio is the only vendor that made Gartner’s 2020 backup and recovery quadrant that failed to make Gartner’s 2021 quadrant.

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant ranks vendors on their ability to execute and completeness of vision and places them in four categories: Niche Players (low on vision and execution), Visionaries (good vision but low execution), Challengers (good execution but low vision) and Leaders (excelling in both vision and execution).
