3 for 3: Commvault Scored Highest in all Three Use Cases in 2021 Gartner® Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions

By Ranga Rajagopalan

Digital transformation is paramount for all companies right now, and data backup and recovery is a strategic component of any successful transformation. A reliable and future-proof data protection solution can mean the difference between fully recovering data after a ransomware attack or disaster, and losing the data – and more importantly, your reputation – forever.

As part of digital transformation, customers are on a journey that often spans across data center, cloud and edge and across multiple generations of workloads – so, in order to accelerate transformation, businesses need solutions that operate across all these environments. That’s why we’re thrilled to have received the highest scores across all use cases in the 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities Report for Backup and Recovery Software Solutions: datacenter environments (4.13/5.0), cloud environments (4.02/5.0), and edge environments (4.01/5.0). We’ve built up our support for cloud, core and edge to help ensure our customers can protect and reliably recover their data anytime, anywhere.

We believe that the Critical Capabilities report is where customers can easily understand the real facts – in terms of technical strengths, product features and overall quality and effectiveness. Our broad portfolio of Intelligent Data Services is, we believe, uniquely positioned to solve the most complicated data challenges of protection, security, compliance and more across cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments. With unparalleled choice of Commvault Complete Data Protection software, HyperScale X appliance or Metallic SaaS, we provide customers flexibility of choice when it comes to deployment models. Essentially this means that we enable our customers to protect their data the way they want, no matter where it lives. From my perspective, it also means meeting our customers where they are now and anticipating where they’ll be in a year, two years, five years, and giving them the technology they need to get there. It means continuously innovating not only to stay at the top of the market, but to stay ahead of customer needs. And it means anticipating how the shifts in technology will impact digital transformation today and tomorrow.

So, while we’re enjoying being named a Leader in 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions for the 10th time in a row, we’re not taking anything for granted. We’re continuing to innovate every day – hand-in-hand with our trusted partners and valued customers.
