Commvault named Magic Quadrant leader for 9th consecutive time

30 Jul 2020

Commvault has been named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. The company says this is the ninth consecutive time that it has been named as a leader in the quadrant.

According to the Gartner report, Commvault protects ‘more public cloud VM instances than any other vendor’ evaluated for the Magic Quadrant report. 

Commvault adds that this is critical as customers continue on their cloud journey and rely on Commvault to protect their workloads.

Furthermore, Commvault states that its 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.

Commvault president and CEO Sanjay Mirchandani says the recognition validates Commvault’s ability to directly address the evolving data management needs facing enterprises.

“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,” adds Mirchandani.

The Gartner report continues, “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.”

Magic Quadrant Leaders must be able to explain how they will address new requirements as part of their recovery management mission.

“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.”
