“This Magic Quadrant describes the evolution of backup, which incorporates new products, solutions and techniques for protecting, backing up and recovering physical server and virtual server files, applications, system images and remote offices and endpoint devices. These backup products provide features such as traditional backup to tape, backup to conventional disk or virtual tape library (VTL), data reduction, snapshot, heterogeneous replication, and continuous data protection (CDP),” said the report. “Because the backup/recovery software and integrated appliance market comprises tens, if not hundreds, of vendors, this research narrows it down to those that have a strong presence in midsize and large organization IT environments.” “The vendor profile on a Magic Quadrant is not product-specific, but rather represents the vendor's overall position in the enterprise backup/recovery software and integrated appliance market. This means that vendors that do not possess a heterogeneous backup application or that deliver only disk-based target appliances are not eligible for inclusion in this Magic

Quadrant,” added authors of the report. “Because the backup/recovery software and integrated appliance market comprises tens, if not hundreds, of vendors, this research narrows it down to those that have a strong presence in midsize and large organization IT environments.” Asigra Cloud Backup™ is an enterprise-class backup and recovery software solution that provides a single, integrated approach to data protection.
