According to the report, “Backup is among the oldest, most performed tasks in IT. The industry continues to undergo significant change as organizations embrace new technologies and techniques and show a propensity to augment or switch legacy vendors and backup techniques… As the backup/recovery software market comprises several dozens, if not hundreds, of vendors, this report narrows it down to those that have strong presence in large-enterprise environments, in part measured by Gartner search analytics and Gartner end-user inquiry.”
