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.

Leader: Veeam

The gold medal for execution on Gartner’s backup and recovery software Magic Quadrant went to Veeam. The company, which is co-headquartered in Ohio and Switzerland, also ranks fourth in terms of vision on the quadrant. Veeam’s Availability Suite (VAS) is composed of Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE for backup monitoring and analytics. Backup for public cloud environments and disaster recovery (DR) orchestration is enabled through add-on products. Over the past 12 months, Veeam launched new tools for Azure and Google Cloud Platform backup and acquired Kasten to expand its portfolio to include container backup support.

Strength: Veeam offers instant recovery of Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware VMs, network attach storage (NAS) environments, and automated instant recovery of Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Databases. The company also provides transparent public cloud backup costs with customers reporting a high level of satisfaction with Veeam’s technical support, according to Gartner.

Weakness: Some customers report large-scale Veeam deployments are complex to manage because deployments typically include several components such as multiple backup servers, proxy servers, mount servers, agents and backup repositories. Gartner said Veeam also lacks global deduplication.
