Gartner has recently published its 2019 Market Share: All Software Markets, Worldwide research, and with sustained multiyear revenue gains, Veeam has increased in market share to become the 3rd largest provider of backup and recovery software.1 Veeam grew its revenue 25.9 percent year-over-year (YoY) in a market that Gartner states grew at 2.5 percent, meaning that Veeam’s growth was over 10 times that of the overall market for backup software.
As is implied by the naming, the Storage Management market sub segment of Backup and Recovery Software examines vendor market share (new license revenue + renewals and maintenance) for software only. This means that hardware-specific revenue associated with from the server, storage and networking infrastructure in deduplication or converged secondary storage appliances is excluded.
Looking back in time, in 2015 Veeam was the 5th largest vendor in market, behind Veritas Technologies, EMC, IBM and Commvault. In 2016 Veeam increased its market share to become the 4th largest provider of backup and recovery software, behind only Veritas Technologies, Dell EMC, and IBM. As Veeam accelerated its growth in 2017 and over the next two years, Veeam finished 2019 with an increased market share position again, becoming the 3rd largest provider of backup and recovery software, behind only Veritas Technologies and Dell EMC.
