Gartner Magic Quadrant for Disk-Based Backup and Recovery

Gartner Statement about Magic Quadrant and ExaGrid by Dave Russell, Vice President, Gartner Research

The “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Disk-Based Backup/Recovery” report published on January 28, 2011, replaces the “MarketScope for Enterprise Backup/Recovery Software” retired in July 2010. To be included in this Magic Quadrant, a vendor has to offer a software application that captures data itself (i.e., backup software). Therefore, the Magic Quadrant does not include vendors that offer VTL or disk-based backup appliances with deduplication unless they also offer a backup software application.

Based on these criteria, ExaGrid and several other disk-based backup vendors were not included in this Magic Quadrant. However, in no way should this beinterpreted as a reason to exclude ExaGrid from consideration as a provider of disk-based backup with deduplication appliance that augment or replace a tape library behind the backup software application.

If you are a Gartner client, I encourage you to contact Gartner directly with questions about the report or for our views on ExaGrid’s products, technology and standing as a disk-based backup appliance with data deduplication vendor.

Best Regards,

Dave Russell
Gartner Research
Vice President, Storage Technologies and
Strategies

When we were evaluating solutions, we wanted something that would scale as our organization and data requirements grew.  ExaGrid gives us that ability to scale in the future while continuing to leverage our current investment.
