Veeam Software has announced that, for the third consecutive year, Veeam has been included in the Visionaries quadrant of the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances. 
“We consider our advancement along both completeness of vision and ability to execute axes in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant as a testament to Veeam’s continued innovation and increased market share,” says Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam.

“As Gartner states, ‘the backup/recovery software and integrated appliance market comprises dozens, if not hundreds, of vendors, this report narrows it down to those that have strong presence worldwide in the upper-end midmarket and large-enterprise environments.’ With the upcoming general availability of the new Veeam Availability Suite v9 later this year, we will continue to strengthen Veeam’s presence in the enterprise by providing Availability for the Modern Data Center. With more than 100 new features, v9 will enable the Always-On BusinessTM to 145 500 current Veeam customers, and the 3 500 new customers we continue to add each month.”

According to Gartner, this Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances “describes the evolution of enterprise backup, which incorporates new products, solutions and techniques for protecting, backing up and recovering physical server and virtual server files, applications, system images, and endpoint devices.

“These backup products provide features such as traditional backup to tape, backup to random-access media (disk, flash and so on) or devices that emulate the previous backup targets (such as virtual tape library [VTL]), data reduction (compression, deduplication, single instancing and so on), snapshot, heterogeneous replication and continuous data protection (CDP).”

“Organisations are increasingly making their backup product selection from vendors that offer expanded protection capabilities and techniques in addition to traditional backup software, as organisations have come to understand the value of backing up critical data via multiple methods, techniques and destinations,” writes Dave Russell, vice-president and distinguished analyst, Pushan Rinnen, Research Director, and Robert Rhame, research director, in this year’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances.
