Gartner Names EMC a Leader in Two Backup Magic Quadrants

Today, I’m thrilled to share that EMC has been positioned as a Leader in the new Magic Quadrant for Deduplication Backup Target Appliances with EMC’s Data Domain deduplication storage systems. First Quadrant

With over a decade of customer adoption, we are increasingly proud of how deeply our customers trust Data Domain systems to protect their environments.  We believe there are a few key reasons that these systems continue to be a customer favorite:

  • Open – Data Domain systems integrate seamlessly with leading backup, archiving and enterprise applications.  This openness is key to ensuring customers have a choice in their protection infrastructure – using Data Domain does not require changing anything in their existing environment.
  • Reliable – The Data Domain Operating System is time (and customer) tested to be the gold standardin reliability.  After 11 years in the market and thousands of customers across numerous industries, Data Domain has set the benchmark for protection storage systems.
  • Fast – With advanced integration with backup and enterprise applications (via EMC Data Domain Boost) as well as new integration with primary storage (via EMC ProtectPoint), Data Domain provides the fastest backup and recovery for any customer environment.

As the world’s largest data protection company, EMC is focused on providing a continuum of data protection solutions from continuous availability to archive.  Our EMC Data Protection Suite, for example, enables customers to unlock the full power of their Data Domain systems. That’s why I’m equally thrilled to share that Gartner also positioned EMC as a Leader in the updated Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances. Second Quadrant The rapid adoption we are seeing with our Data Protection Suite is proof that customers value a more complete range of data protection solutions. It’s rewarding to see that more and more companies trust EMC to protect their data. And that is not something we take for granted. This is why you will continue to see us redefine and raise the bar in data protection – to both maintain our customers’ trust, as well as help them transform their businesses.
