Gartner Magic Quadrant 2020
Recently published Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions shows to things. Obviously: challengers, niche players, leaders, and visionaries. But Gartner also describes what can be defined as “market expectations” in this area. They are about versatility, automation, and intelligent management:
- Back up and recover operating systems, files, databases, and applications in both physical and virtual environments in the data center.
- Assign backup and retention policies that align with the organization’s recovery objectives.
- Report success and failure of backup/recovery tasks.
It is encouraging when your solutions offer much more than that. The next step belongs to companies that are heading towards modernizing their data center. As Gartner says:
“The move toward public cloud, heightened concerns over ransomware, and complexities associated with backup and data management are forcing I&O leaders to rearchitect their backup infrastructure and explore alternative solutions.”
Everything has changed – we’ve never touched so many new workloads and applications in a variety of scenarios – cloud, edge, datacenter, SaaS applications. The winners in the coming years will be companies that choose a supplier who will help them secure all of the above workloads. Furthermore, Gartner predicts that “By 2022, 40% of organizations will completely replace or supplement their backup applications, compared with what they had deployed in 2018”.
