Commvault Named Leader in Gartner for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions

Commvault has been positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions1. According to Gartner, Commvault has been evaluated for its ability to execute and completeness of vision.

This is the ninth consecutive time Commvault has been named a Leader in Gartner’s market evaluation for backup and recovery.

In addition, Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery software has received the highest scores across all use cases – physical, virtual and public cloud environments – in the Gartner Critical Capabilities for Backup and Recovery Solutions report, with a score of 4.15 out of 5 for the public cloud environments use case.

With the most robust data management portfolio in the market, Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery supports the broadest range of applications, databases, public cloud environments, OSs and hypervisors, NAS systems, and primary storage arrays of all of the vendors evaluated by Gartner.

According to Gartner, Commvault also protects more public cloud VM instances than any other vendor evaluated for the Magic Quadrant report. This leadership is critical as customers continue on their cloud journey and rely on Commvault to protect their workloads.

“Commvault believes Gartner’s recognition in both the Magic Quadrant and Critical Capabilities reports is validation of our ability to directly address the evolving data management needs facing enterprises today,” said Sanjay Mirchandani, President and CEO, Commvault. “We help customers solve complex problems with the industry’s most integrated product. With the broadest support for operating systems, hypervisors, databases, storage arrays, and cloud providers, we enable them to address their needs today and prepare them for the future.”

Gartner continued, “A fundamental sea change is occurring in the backup and recovery market. For vendors to have long-term success, they must plan to address the legacy requirements of traditional backup and recovery, while looking to expand their integration with and exploitation of emerging applications, hypervisors, snapshot and replication technologies, and public cloud capabilities. A cornerstone for Leaders is the ability to articulate how new requirements will be addressed as part of their vision for recovery management. As a group, Leaders can be expected to be considered part of most new-purchase proposals and to have high success rates in winning new business. This does not mean, however, that a large market share alone is a primary indicator of a Leader. Leaders are strategic vendors, well positioned for the future having established success in meeting the needs of upper-midsize and large data centers.”
