Veritas a leader for data center backup and recovery solutions

October 2019 IT infrastructure

Veritas Technologies announced that it has been positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s 2019 ‘Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions’. This marks the 14th consecutive time that Veritas has been recognised as a leader in the report.

Gartner’s evaluation criteria for vendors includes completeness of vision and ability to execute. As the backup and recovery market has hundreds of vendors, this report “provides analyses of execution and vision of leading backup and recovery vendors and solutions.”

“Ninety-nine percent of the Fortune 100 trust Veritas to protect their data, simplify how they manage it, and ensure the continuity of their business through our data protection and availability solutions,” said Deepak Mohan, executive vice president, Enterprise Data Protection and Compliance, Veritas.

According to the report, “Veritas NetBackup is a matured product that is proven in the most demanding environments, thus it is favoured by large organisations with a complex mix of legacy, traditional and modern workloads.”

Key innovations that differentiate NetBackup include:

• Scalable data protection – proven scale in the most demanding environments, with several customers deploying multiple petabytes and more than one thousand clients in a single environment. Scalable data protection gives organisations the confidence of recovering large environments in the face of ransomware, data loss or other threats to modern enterprises.

• Automated, multi-cloud integration – supports a broad range of operating systems, hypervisors and relational databases, providing organisations with unified data protection regardless of where they are on their cloud journey.

• Extensive storage options – integrates with a wide range of storage arrays, object storage, public cloud targets and tape device vendors, ensuring seamless integration into heterogenous environments.

According to Gartner, “leaders have the highest combined measures of ability to execute and completeness of vision. They have the most comprehensive and scalable product portfolios. They have a proven track record of established market presence and financial performance. For vision, they are perceived in the industry as thought leaders, and have well-articulated plans for enhancing recovery capabilities, improving ease of deployment and administration, and increasing their scalability and product breadth.

“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. A cornerstone for leaders is the ability to articulate how new requirements will be addressed as part of their vision for recovery management. 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.”
