Veeam Positioned in the “Visionaries” Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances
Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
“Organizations worldwide are seeking ways to easily, quickly and cost-effectively ensure that their data is appropriately protected”
Veeam® Software, innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™, today announced that the company has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the June 16, 2014, Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances.
“We consider our positioning in the 'Visionaries' quadrant by Gartner confirmation of our ability to provide data center availability solutions that enable customers to access data 24/7 from anywhere,” said Ratmir Timashev, president and CEO of Veeam. “With the upcoming launch of the Veeam Availability Suite™ v8 later this year, IT organizations will be able deploy a new enabling technology that transforms the Always-On Business™ from a capability reserved for only a few operations at the world’s largest organizations into a reality for everyone.”
According to Gartner, the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances “describes the evolution of backup, which incorporates new products, solutions and techniques for protecting, backing up and recovering physical server and virtual server files, applications, system images and remote offices and endpoint devices. These backup products provide features such as traditional backup to tape, backup to conventional disk or virtual tape library (VTL), data reduction, snapshot, heterogeneous replication, and continuous data protection (CDP). These solutions may be provided as software only, or as an integrated appliance that contains all or substantial components of the backup application, such as backup management server or a media server.”
“Organizations worldwide are seeking ways to easily, quickly and cost-effectively ensure that their data is appropriately protected,” writes Dave Russell, Vice President and Distinguished Analyst, and Pushan Rinnen, Research Director, in this year’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances. “Organizations are also voicing the opinion that backup needs to improve a lot, not just a little. The rising frustration with backup implies that the data protection approaches of the past may no longer suffice in meeting current — much less future — recovery requirements.”
Veeam will showcase its availability solutions at VeeamON: The World’s Premier Data Center Availability Event, taking place October 6–9, 2014, at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, NV. Veeam will bring together industry-leading experts, Veeam customers and partners who will learn about enabling the Always-On Business. Registration is now open.
