The recent health, economic and social watershed events of 2020 bring into stark reality how the fabric of our lives can change in an instant.Despite these dizzying changes, one thing has not changed – the criticality of data. In fact, data has never been more critical than it is right now. That’s why we are humbled to be recognized by Gartner as a Leader in the 2020 Data Center Backup & Recovery Solutions Magic Quadrant – a distinction we have earned in every Gartner Magic Quadrant for data center backup and recovery solutions since 1999.¹Our 21-year position as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant is, we believe, a continuing affirmation of the trust our customers place in us, not merely as just a provider of leading data protection solutions, but as a partner committed to their long-term success.That commitment begins with taking a customer-first approach in everything we do – from investing in our people, to investing in our communities, to investing in innovation.And it all begins with data. Unlocking the next great discovery begins with creating, curating, protecting and securing the vast amounts of data being born across core, edge and multi-cloud computing environments.Therefore, safeguarding data to ensure it is highly available, efficiently protected and secure from cyber threats wherever it lives, is a mission we are deeply committed to.For example, three key areas where we are helping our customers today are:Cloud Data Protection – delivering solutions to protect any workload across any cloud while providing the lowest cost to protect in the cloud. Today, we have over 1,000 customers protecting over 2.7 Exabytes of data in the cloud.²VMware data protection – delivering deep integration with VMware to simplify and automate data protection for virtual and containerized workloads for increased agility.Cyber Recovery – secure infrastructure that optimizes cyber resiliency to ensure rapid recovery from destructive cyberattacks.
