Gartner® Positions Veeam in the Visionaries Quadrant of the 2015 Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances

Evaluation based on completeness of vision and ability to execute

Baar, Switzerland: June 30, 2015: Veeam Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center, today 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,” said 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, etc.) or devices that emulate the previous backup targets (e.g., virtual tape library [VTL]), data reduction (compression, deduplication, single instancing, etc.), snapshot, heterogeneous replication and continuous data protection (CDP).”

“Organizations are increasingly making their backup product selection from vendors that offer expanded protection capabilities and techniques in addition to traditional backup software, as organizations 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.

VeeamON 2015: The World’s Premier Data Center Availability Event, will take place October 26–29, 2015 at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. For the second consecutive year, Veeam will bring together industry-leading experts, Veeam customers and partners who will learn about enabling the Always-On Business. Pre-registration is now open.

About Veeam Software

Veeam recognizes the new challenges companies across the globe face in enabling the Always-On Business, a business that must operate 24/7/365.  To address this, Veeam has created a fundamentally new kind of solution and pioneered a new market of Availability for the Modern Data Center.  Unlike “Legacy Backup” solutions which provide recovery time (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) of hours or days, Veeam helps organizations meet recovery time and point objectives (RTPO) of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data.  This is achieved through a fundamentally new kind of solution that delivers high-speed recovery, data loss avoidance, verified protection, leveraged data and complete visibility. Veeam Availability Suite, which includes Veeam Backup & Replication, leverages virtualization, storage, and cloud technologies that enable the modern data center to help organizations save time, mitigate risks, and dramatically reduce capital and operational costs.
