Who made the cut: Gartner’s Magic Quadrant 2016
June 21, 2016
Actifio has been named Sole Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Data Centre Backup and Recovery Software report. The company unlocks and virtualises data for meaningful organisational changes through its Copy Data Virtualisation platform, and has had uptake by 1200 enterprise in 37 countries worldwide.
Gartner’s report states that “By 2020, 30% of organisations will leverage backup for more than just operational recovery (e.g., disaster recovery, test/development, DevOps, etc.), up from less than 10% at the beginning of 2016.”
“We are proud to be included in this new Magic Quadrant for Data Centre Backup and Recovery Software, and to have been recognised as the lone Visionary in the space by Gartner. Data is the lifeblood of the modern enterprise, and our technology enables our customers not only to protect their critical data, but to leverage it as an asset for testing and development as they embrace next-generation hybrid cloud architectures. We believe our inclusion in the Magic Quadrant once again validates our vision that enterprise backup data should not be seen as a siloed and stagnant part of an organisation, but an asset enabling our customers to become more agile, resilient and cloud-ready,” says Ash Ashutosh, Actifio Founder and CEO.”
