Veeam named Magic Quadrant Leader for fourth year running

27 Jul 2020

Veeam Software has been positioned by Gartner in the Leaders quadrant of the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. 

Not only does this mark the fourth time Gartner has recognised Veeam as a category Leader, but it is the first time Veeam is positioned highest overall in ability to execute.

Veeam was also the only vendor to move higher in both ability to execute and in the completeness of vision categories. 

“To us, being named a Leader by Gartner for the fourth time cements our commitment to lead the industry with innovation, execution, and delivering the most simple, flexible and reliable solutions for Cloud Data Management,” says Veeam CTO and product strategy senior vice president Danny Allan. 

“With more than 375,000 customers and $1B in annual bookings, we continue to guide our customers through their digital transformation and Hybrid/Multi-cloud journeys at a time when data protection is paramount and leveraging data reuse for overall business value is critical.”

Veeam released Veeam Availability Suite (VAS) v10 earlier this year, delivering modern file data protection for Networked Attached Storage (NAS), Multi-VM Instant Recovery to automate disaster recovery (DR), and heightened ransomware protection. 

The report included an analysis of 11 data centre backup and recovery solutions vendors. 

Heightened concerns over ransomware, and complexities associated with backup and data management are forcing I&O leaders to re-architect their backup infrastructure and explore alternative solutions, a statement from Veeam says.

Supporting quotes provided by Veeam:

“Veeam is incredibly scalable, no matter what we throw at it. It’s simple to use and it always works, underpinning our business operations now and into the future. Veeam provides the best data protection on the market, offers the broadest integration with storage and lets us reliably retain data as long as we need in the cloud.” – WesCEF technology systems manager Adem Cahtarevic.

“Veeam will protect our critical data by creating and maintaining a chain of cloud-native snapshots of EC2 instances in case we need to recover from them in a disaster situation. We were familiar with Veeam Cloud Data Management when we replaced legacy backup, and now we understand even more why Veeam is the industry leader in data protection.” – Martiz infrastructure specialist Michael Masters.

“You can’t underestimate the importance of data protection to a company’s reputation and bottom line. Veeam provides continuous access to customer data so we can receive, process and deliver orders efficiently. We couldn’t provide the level of customer service we pledge on CORT.com without full confidence we can restore critical systems in a disaster.” – Cort enterprise systems administrator Adam Camphuysen.
