Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances

It’s an honor to be recognized by Gartner for four years in a row for our industry vision and our ability to execute in an increasingly competitive market. A lot has changed in our industry during that time. Commvault’s objective is to not only be the leader but remain the leader. We don’t rest on our laurels or take these types of accolades for granted. You can’t coast in the tech industry. Our mission is to improve our technology and services every day. Of course the real objective is to always create value for our customers. Four years in a row is great. Our goal now is to make it five.

The industry has continued to consolidate as it increasingly focuses on software-centric solutions (the so-called software defined data center). Virtualization is now a staple in the data center, and private, hybrid and public clouds are coming into their own, especially for archive and disaster recovery purposes. We see customers moving beyond traditional backup to embrace broader, modern data management technologies and solutions that help them better discover, protect, manage, access and gain insight from data. It’s exciting to be recognized as a leader but it’s even more thrilling to see customers benefitting from a better way to manage data -- It starts with a singular software platform, sophisticated data indexing and our technology-agnostic approach to help customers deal with agile, modern infrastructures.

That’s why we do what we do. Commvault has built a unique data management architecture that allows enterprises to create value from data. Simpana software delivers enterprise-class snapshot management, recovery, protection and space archive solution. Compliance, eDiscovery, selective (based on meta data and content) archiving solutions can be easily added…all with a single and consistent management interface and framework. With these powerful capabilities, organizations can increase the utility and informational value of data via analytics, collaboration, and cloud-based and mobile applications.

We’ve also continued to invest in our PartnerAdvantage program for technology, services and solutions for our worldwide partners, service providers and resellers. We’re focused on expanding our data management ecosystem to meet the challenges of our global customers, while offering new routes to market and increased revenue opportunities for our business partners.

It’s exciting to be named a Leader four years in a row and I’d like to thank all of our colleagues, customers and partners for their support. They are equally passionate about All Things Data, and we're humbled that they've chosen to join us on this journey; we appreciate their continued commitment and trust.
