Commvault - a leader in the Magic Quadrant for enterprise backup & recovery

15 Aug 17

Commvault, a provider of cloud data management solutions, has a portfolio made up of data protection, backup and recovery solutions.

The company offers an integrated, automated data protection platform that provides a single, complete view of enterprise data.

The data backup company has been positioned by Gartner in the Leaders division of the Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions.

Gartner positioned Commvault furthest for completeness of vision in the Leaders quadrant.

This is the seventh consecutive year Commvault has been named a leader in Gartner's market evaluation for backup and disaster recovery.

According to the report, "Gartner provides analysis and evaluation of the leading data center backup solution vendors that offer a range of traditional to innovative availability capabilities."

"We feel this recognition by Gartner is a validation of our innovation and unparalleled customer service for the seventh straight year and is great news for Commvault and for our customers and partners," comments N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO, Commvault.

"We believe our much simpler, easier-to-use solutions enabled by our new, comprehensive UX, and our competitive, flexible pricing models built on the powerful Commvault Data Platform, are driving our building market momentum and leadership.”

“We believe our industry leading automation, data portability and unparalleled functionality in the cloud have established Commvault as the leader as enterprises journey to the cloud.”

“I want to thank our employees, partners and customers for their passion, innovation and execution, which has allowed us to realise our vision of delivering solutions not only for classic recovery use cases but also as an effective weapon battling ransomware, GDPR, and for broad data management."

Moreover, the report states that "many companies are willing to adopt new technologies and products from new vendors, and they have shown an increased willingness to augment or even completely switch backup and recovery providers to better meet their increasing service-level needs, overall cost requirements and ease of management needs."

Commvault explains that as data becomes increasingly central to a business’s success in today’s digital economy, enterprise data backup and recovery requirements continue to rapidly evolve. As a result, ransomware attacks are growing in volume and complexity, which means enterprises are accelerating their move to the cloud, the report claims.  

For example, according to Gartner:

  • By 2021, 50% of organisations will augment or replace their current backup application with another solution, compared to what they deployed at the beginning of 2017.
  • By 2020, 30% of large enterprises will leverage snapshots and backup for more than just operational recovery (e.g., disaster recovery, test/development, DevOps, etc.), up from less than 15% at the beginning of 2017.
  • By 2020, the number of enterprises using the cloud as a backup target will double, up from 10% at the beginning of 2017.
  • By 2019, despite increasing effectiveness of countermeasures, successful ransomware attacks will double in frequency year over year, up from two to three million in 2016.
