Gartner just published its 2013 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup/Recovery Software, and, for the third year in a row, CommVault was named to the Leaders Quadrant. You can see where the top 4 vendors are placed and where CommVault landed in the chart below. You can also download the full Gartner report from our site.
We're extremely honored to be recognized for our industry vision, innovation, partnerships and customer services and support. But this achievement would not have been possible without our more than 1,700 employees, 18,000 customers and growing network of PartnerAdvantage OEM, reseller and distribution partners. They are equally passionate about all things data, and we're humbled that they've chosen to take a leap forward with us.
These modern thinkers are recognizing that the old ways to back up and manage data are costly, counter-productive and cumbersome. They want more knowledge, even wisdom, about their business and to share information throughout their enterprise in order to react faster to changing market conditions. For these data-driven organizations, we believe the introduction of Simpana 10 with ContentStore will transform the way they conduct their business.
Simpana 10 delivers game-changing technology that goes far beyond technology-based, IT-centric functions of backup, archive, replication, snapshot management to address much broader business needs. With Simpana, all the current and historical data created by an organization, from servers to laptops, in the data center and the cloud, is now available through a singular software platform for self-service access, compliance search, data mining and reporting. Simpana 10 facilitates instant information access by just about everybody, from the CEO to the compliance officer and everyone in between, for improved productivity and smarter decision making. In the years to come, you'll see CommVault continuing to push the envelope on unlocking access to data and helping customers increase the business value of the information they're already managing. And the market is embracing this vision.
It's exciting to be recognized for three consecutive years as a leader in our competitive industry. I'd like to thank all of our colleagues, customers and partners for their support along this journey.
