Commvault Named A February 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice For Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions

By Jason Knadler

Last week, Commvault was named a February 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions for the third time. This distinction recognizes only the highest-rated vendors and products as evaluated by customers. 

In its announcement, Gartner explains, “The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is a recognition of vendors in this market by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings.”

To ensure fair evaluation, Gartner maintains rigorous criteria for recognizing vendors with a high customer satisfaction rate.

This recognition is particularly gratifying for Commvault because it “focuses on direct peer experiences of implementing and operating a solution.”

In other words, it is based on the experiences of our customers as they use our solutions to solve the various data challenges they face on a daily basis.

Here are some excerpts from customers who contributed to the distinction:
