Vendor Landscape: Cloud Backup Gateways

Combine on-site storage with off-site clouds for data protection and capital cost avoidance.

  • It’s hard to get the bearings of a market where most of the vendors have been around for just two or three years.
  • Cloud backup vendors have different definitions of what entails an enterprise-class cloud backup solution, further complicating the situation.
  • Info-Tech Research Group has developed a clear definition of business-class cloud backup gateways, and evaluated six leading vendors.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Direct-to-cloud backup solutions are not enterprise-ready. They provide no resiliency in the event your internet connection is not available.
  • Cloud backup startups come with impressive pedigrees, typically founded by people who have experience in storage, WAN optimization, and security.
  • Cloud backup is a rapidly maturing market heading for commoditization already, and vendors have already begun differentiating themselves by focusing on specific problems or niche markets.
