Acronis joins Gartner 2010 Enterprise Magic Quadrant

Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 porfolio has been included in the 2010 Magic Quadrant report for enterprise disk-based backup/recovery written by Gartner. According to the company, the number of enterprises using the Acronis software for backup and recovery in remote and branch offices has been increasing. “As an organisation that is focused on the SMB market and a relative newcomer to the enterprise market, we are gratified to be included in this enterprise-focused report. We believe the increasing number of enterprises using our technology warranted our inclusion, and this demonstrates that our advanced imaging technology and BMR capabilities can address an important component of an overall enterprise backup and disaster recovery plan,” said Acronis’ CEO Jason Donahue. Donahue added that the company’s main focus remains the SMB market. “We believe we can continue to meet the specific needs of our core SMB market even as we progress in addressing key aspects of the enterprise market around virtualisation, integrated application protection, and general disaster recovery and data protection,” he added. Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is a graphical representation of a marketplace at and for a specific time period. It depicts Gartner's analysis of how certain vendors measure against criteria for that marketplace, as defined by Gartner.
