IBM has announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned IBM as a leader in the June 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) for the second consecutive year. This year, IBM was positioned the highest in ability to execute and the furthest in completeness of vision.

IBM offers one of the most comprehensive sets of related professional and managed services. In addition, IBM has a solid provider portal interface in place for configuring a virtual recover data center, recovering servers, and monitoring testing progress and completion, as well as one of the highest percentage of supported hybrid configurations.
