Unitrends has announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, has positioned the company as a Visionary in its June 2016 Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service. According to the report “from 2016 through 2020, the use of either DRaaS or IaaS to support the failover of production applications will grow by more than 200%.”

The complete report, including the quadrant graphic, which was published on June 16, 2016, is available here. As a new entrant to Gartner's DRaaS Magic Quadrant, Unitrends was evaluated for its ability to execute as well as the completeness of vision.

“We believe that Unitrends’ recognition by Gartner as a Visionary in the DRaaS is a direct reflection of our solution’s ability to deliver end-to-end protection for virtual and physical assets, a guaranteed one-hour recovery SLA and automated disaster recovery testing,” said Josh Gray, CEO, Unitrends. “Unitrends’ award-winning Connected Continuity Platform solutions continue to be recognized for enabling organizations to protect against and quickly recover from unforeseen events and meet the complexities facing today’s modern business environments. We were thrilled to be recognized as a Visionary by Gartner in the DRaaS Magic Quadrant, and for being acknowledged in Gartner’s June 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Software given its change in focus to large enterprises.”
