We're pleased to say we've been positioned by Gartner in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant of its Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service for the third year in a row.
Gartner evaluated 24 Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) providers for this year's Magic Quadrant. Service providers were evaluated against their ‘ability to execute’ - to provide a DRaaS offering that meets customer requirements with a high level of service and customer support - and a ‘completeness of vision’ - the ability to understand customer needs and translate them into products and services that shape or enhance the market.
According to Gartner, the firms in the Leaders quadrant of the DRaaS Magic Quadrant have "large, mature DRaaS practices. These players have significant industry experience, global capabilities, a focus on DRaaS as a standalone offering, and industry-leading vision with respect to meeting the needs of its intended target customer segments."
With nearly four decades’ experience in delivering recovery solutions that apply to all facets of customers' production environments, Sungard AS understands that IT must deliver business results. Looking beyond just protecting data, Sungard AS’ DRaaS solutions deliver a holistic approach to business resiliency. Our comprehensive DRaaS solutions are designed to be flexible enough to work with complex, bi-modal production and recovery environments, scaling up and down according to specific business requirements, and meeting a full range of recovery time and recovery point objectives (RTOs/RPOs). Sungard AS’ DRaaS solutions can be integrated with the full range of Sungard AS disaster recovery and business continuity services, including Managed Recovery services.
“With the increasing digitisation of key business functions, there is more at stake than ever before for organisations, which can no longer afford to rely on cheap or simple disaster recovery,” said Josh Crowe, Chief Technology Officer for Sungard AS. “Today’s business threats demand a more holistic and fluid business resiliency and recovery approach that evolve with an organisation. We designed our DRaaS offering to respond to our global customers’ needs, and we will continue to shape our DRaaS vision for future scenarios. We take great pride in being named by Gartner as a leader in Disaster Recovery as a Service for the third consecutive year and we will continue to identify and react to new market needs.”
