Confused About Data Backup Choices? Let Gartner’s Research Help

May 28, 2021, 14:30 PM by Becky Cook

If your organisation is like most, the 2020 lockdowns added new urgency to plans that were probably already on your IT team’s roadmap—initiatives such as “cloud backup,” “protect Office 365 data,” “disaster recovery,” etc. But if you’ve started researching cloud data management partners, you might be feeling overwhelmed with the sheer volume of choices. How do you know which services, and which companies, will be right for you?

 

Here is a simple, three-step strategy finding the right solutions for your organisation—and the right partner to support them.

 

The easy solution: tune out everything but the industry’s experts 

 

If you want to quickly cut through the noise and hype in an industry as competitive as cloud data management, you can start by listening to the most respected analysts, researchers, and advisors in the field. When it comes to enterprise IT solutions, that means Gartner.

 

STEP 1:

Read what Gartner, the world’s top IT advisory, says about data backup providers

 

In 2020, Gartner named Veeam a “Leader” in its Magic Quadrant for “Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions.” 

 

In fact, this was the fourth time Veeam’s cloud data management applications had earned Gartner’s Leader designation.

 

STEP 2:

Listen to what IT professionals around the world say about backup providers

 

If you have any concern that Gartner’s analysts lack real-world experience using these products, this next data point is for you. Far from developing their Magic Quadrant in a vacuum, Gartner’s team compiles and analyses feedback from IT customers all over the world.

 

In 2020, Veeam was also named a Customers’ Choice for Data Center Backup and Recovery in Gartner’s annual Peer Insights report.

 

In fact, Veeam topped even the list of highest-ranked backup and recovery providers—with more than 850 verified-customer reviews and an overall star rating of 4.7 out of 5. And whatever your organisation’s cloud data management needs, you’ll find a solution among Veeam’s wide-ranging suite, which includes:

 

  • Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Veeam Availability Suite

  • Veeam Cloud Connect

  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

  • Veeam Backup for AWS

  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure

  • Veeam Backup for Google Cloud

  

STEP 3:

Learn which technology partner the most respected backup provider recommends

 

With a four-time “Leader” designation for cloud backup and recovery, and more positive reviews from IT customers than any other provider, Veeam has established itself as the clear choice for your data management software solution. 

 

So, here’s the final question: Which technology vendor can you trust to help you customise, build, implement, and oversee your Veeam data backup and recovery environment—around the clock?

 

Veeam names KeepItSafe a Global Platinum Partner

 

Here, the simplest approach is to let Veeam itself tell you which resellers the company trusts with its best customers.

 

The answer you’ll reach is KeepItSafe—one of only a small number of cloud providers in the world to have earned Global Veeam Platinum Partner status.

 

KeepItSafe, you’ll be signing on with more than a mere reseller of Veeam’s software solutions. You’ll be tapping into decades of combined experience and expertise overseeing thousands of Veeam environments around the world.


In fact, you can enhance the benefits of your organisation’s Veeam solutions with KeepItSafe’s value-added services, including:

 

  • KeepItSafe’s award-winning portal for Office 365

  • Aggressive recovery times

  • Customisable Veeam architecture
