Gartner Magic Quadrant

Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Backup

When Gartner announced the 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice awards for Data Center Backup and Recovery products last week, the foresight and vision displayed by Acronis generated a surprise appearance. That’s because unlike the other six vendors recognized as a Customers’ Choice, Acronis was not covered in Gartner’s previous Magic Quadrants for Backup and Recovery.

Instead, Acronis earned the recognition as Peer Insights Customers’ Choice because actual product users submitted enough high-quality testimonials and scores to get the company added to the awards list.

Many of you may know that a couple of weeks ago Gartner published its first-ever magic quadrant report on Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). In case you missed it, Acronis is challenging the leaders in this space, and Gartner ranked us highest among the Challengers on our Ability to Execute.

But what does it really mean to you as a customer or future customer of Acronis?

All 14 players included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant are qualified vendors that have no doubt earned their placement in the report. With that said, each vendor offering differs in the way it approaches disaster recovery, the features it delivers, and the resources it allocates to the solution – all of which ultimately impact the actual solution delivered to customers.

So, the question is: How does Acronis differentiate, and where does Acronis fit in this landscape of disaster recovery solutions in the cloud?
