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.
Rubrik won the gold medal for vision on Gartner’s backup and recovery software Magic Quadrant, while also ranking fourth in execution. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company’s portfolio consists of its core backup software platform Rubrik Cloud Data Management (RCDM); Polaris, a SaaS-based platform for centralized visibility and management that leverages metadata to provide ransomware assessment, recovery and data classification; and Mosaic for NoSQL workload protection. Over the past year, RCDM added backup support for AWS RDS, Microsoft Office 365 OneDrive, SAP HANA on Google Cloud Platform and VMware Cloud on AWS. Rubrik also acquired Igneous, which provides scale-out NAS data management for cloud-based archival and recovery.
Strength: Gartner customer reviews show Rubrik offers an intuitive UI that is easy to operate and scale. Additionally, RCDM provides comprehensive support for all major relational databases and NoSQL databases.
Weakness: Rubrik doesn’t support backup of Salesforce and Google Workspace environments. RCDM requires a four-node VM cluster to be deployed in the public cloud to support protection and recovery of applications and databases hosted in public cloud IaaS, which increases computing costs.
