Gartner Names Veeam as a Leader Once Again

Veeam has once again placed in the Leaders quadrant of the June 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Software.

The 2016 'Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Software' is a refocus and update to the 'Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances' that was last published in June 2015.

The renamed Magic Quadrant and updated market criteria are in response to Gartner client requests to focus more on backup and recovery software for the upper midsize to large enterprises that protect data center workloads managed by data center personnel.

As Ratmir Timashev, CEO for Veeam explained, "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."

"With the upcoming release of Veeam Availability Suite™ v9.5 later this year, Veeam will continue to innovate and provide its end-users and partners with very best availability solution to meet the needs of upper midsize and large data centers so they are not left behind in the current digital transformation” he added.

It is worth noting that First Distribution is an official distributor to every one of the companies falling within the Leaders quadrant for this particular market sector - Commvault, IBM, EMC, Veritas and Veeam.
