For the second year in a row, Cohesity has held the title of being a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for enterprise backup and recovery software solutions.

Cohesity, who focuses on providing a comprehensive backup solution for on-premise and cloud environments, was yet again named a leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for the ability to execute and completeness of vision for enterprise backup and recovery software solutions.

To be named a leader in the ability to execute and completeness of vision, organisations need to ensure that they not only have a strong and proven track record of established market presence and financial performance but also have the most comprehensive and scalable product portfolio.  According to Gartner, some of the criteria that establish a business as a leader are their “well-articulated plans for enhancing recovery capabilities, improving ease of deployment and administration, and increasing their scalability and product breadth”.

Additionally, Gartner explains that each leader has to take into consideration transformational technologies and deliver on the needs of end users by:

  • Backing up and recovering operating systems, files, databases, and applications in the on-premises data centre.
  • Creating a backup copy in the same physical location as the production environment for fast operational recovery.
  • Assigning multiple backup and retention policies that align with the organisation’s recovery objectives.
  • Reporting success and failure of backup/recovery tasks.

Positioned as a leader, Cohesity dutifully meets these criteria, most recently evident in their successful delivery of next gen data management. This focuses on helping organisations protect their data while ensuring rapid recovery from ransomware attacks. Lynn Lucas, Cohesity’s chief marketing officer, says: “Couple that with the ability to easily back up, recover, and manage data across a host of use cases – in the data centre, edge, cloud, or through as a service, all on one platform – that is radical simplicity at its best.”

Cohesity’s strength lies in their operational simplicity (scalability and ease of use), ecosystem support (through integration and broad range of data reuse capabilities), and unified management (leveraging of their SaaS-based platform, Helios).
