TINTON FALLS, N.J.: Commvault, a provider of data management lifecycle solutions, announces being positioned as a leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant 2016 for data center backup and recovery software.

Commvault is positioned as the highest on execution and furthest on completeness of vision in the Magic Quadrant, marking the company as a leader for the sixth consecutive year in the Magic Quadrant.

As the landscape of the backup and recovery market continues to change, customer requirements are also changing. It is estimated that by 2020, 30% of organizations will leverage backup for more than just operational recovery, an increases from less than 10% at the beginning of 2016. Also estimating by 2018, the number of enterprises using the cloud as a backup destination will double, up from 11% at the beginning of 2016.

Commvault provides solutions that empower enterprises by delivering workload and data portability offerings that enable enterprises to extend the traditional data center to the cloud. Leveraging its single code base it provides customers with solutions that can scale from small Virtual Machine (VM) backup projects and other solution-specific bundles to full enterprise-wide data backup and recovery.

Commvault caters to the broadest level of support in the industry for physical, virtual and cloud technologies, expanding customer choice, eliminating vendor lock-in and empowering customers to move their workloads to any infrastructure they want. These solutions also offer flexible pricing models that keep costs down, while still continuing to ensure its customers’ success with industry-leading support and services.

The solutions from Commvault adopt a modern, flexible disaster recovery approach that fits customer needs in prioritizing application recovery, ensuring manageable plans for IT resources, and providing thoughtful, workable approaches that fulfill the objectives of business continuity in the most seamless way possible. It also protects applications both on premises and in the cloud.

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant

The 2016 Magic Quadrant by Gartner measured 15 comprehensive criteria to rate vendors based on their strengths in the market. The Magic Quadrant comprises of four Quadrants: Leaders, Challengers, Niche Players and Visionaries.

The vertical axis of the quadrant measures the vendor's ability to execute. Criteria such as product or service, overall viability, sales execution/pricing, market responsiveness/record, marketing execution, customer experience and operations are included in the evaluation.

The horizontal axis of the quadrant measures the vendor's completeness of vision. It includes criteria such as market understanding, market strategy, sales strategy, offering (product) strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy, innovation and geographic strategy.

Commvault is positioned as a leader and is the highest on execution and furthest on completeness of vision for Gartner’s Magic Quadrant 2016 for data center backup and recovery software.

Quadrant Composition

Niche Players

 These companies focus successfully on a small segment, or are unfocused and do not out-innovate or outperform others.

“For Commvault, it has always been all about the data, and the new Magic Quadrant validates our strategy to help companies manage and protect their data, and to flexibly adopt new technologies, in particular the cloud,” says N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO, Commvault. “Commvault is a clear leader in the data center backup and recovery software – so say our customers and our partners.
