The data protection landscape

Jason Buffington,
VP, Solutions Strategy


Published date: February 13, 2019

For the next few weeks, two former industry analysts (who are now Veeam execs) discuss the trends that are shaping the data protection industry and IT landscape:

Dave Russell @BackupDave, former VP and Distinguished Analyst at Gartner, lead analyst for the Backup MQ

Jason Buffington @JBuff, former Principal Analyst for Data Protection at ESG

This week, we’re talking about the landscape of data protection vendors, without the “quadrants”:

  • Discussing legacy vendors and noisy startups
  • What multi-cloud really should mean from a data protection strategy
  • What does the future of data protection look like (buyers and sellers)


Dave and Jason are now both VPs working on various aspects of Veeam’s strategy.  If either of them, or Veeam, can help you, please let us know.

We’ll see you back here next week – thanks for watching.
