Commvault Recognized as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions for 8th Straight Time
Commvault, a recognized global enterprise software leader in the management of data for cloud and on-premises environments, today announced it was positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the recently released Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. Gartner positioned Commvault furthest for completeness of vision in the Leaders quadrant and highest for ability to execute in the entire Magic Quadrant. This is the eighth consecutive time Commvault has been named a Leader in this Gartner market evaluation for backup and recovery.

According to Gartner, "The data center backup and recovery market is rapidly changing as it addresses I&O leaders' needs for simpler, more agile and cost-optimized solutions. This research provides analyses of execution and vision of leading backup and recovery vendors and solutions."

"We're excited to celebrate our position as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant today at our annual customer event, Commvault GO, where Commvault will share its vision on how it intends to build on its backup and recovery innovation," said Sanjay Mirchandani, CEO and President, Commvault. "We feel this recognition by Gartner for the eighth time in a row validates our ability to consistently deliver innovative technology and world-class customer service and support, enabling our customers to be data ready and thrive in today's data centric world. I want to thank our employees, customers and partners for their passion and dedication, which we believe makes our ability to execute possible."

The report also states that "today, ease of deployment, instant recovery and, especially, a greater ease of daily administration are key requirements. The backup and recovery market is also consolidating many features like data replication, (cloud) disaster recovery automation and orchestration and intercloud data mobility on a single platform. In addition, backup vendors are adding data management functionality to their backup platforms to support analytics, test/dev and/or ransomware detection on cloud copies of backup data to deliver a higher return on the investment of data protection."
