According to Gartner, "The Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup/Recovery Software presents the next step in the evolution of backup, which incorporates new products, solutions and techniques for protecting, backing up and recovering desktop, laptop, physical server and virtual server files, applications and system images. These backup products provide features such as traditional backup to tape, backup to conventional disk, backup to the cloud, data reduction (compression and deduplication), snapshot, heterogeneous replication, continuous data protection (CDP) and/or virtual tape library (VTL) support, among other capabilities."

According to the report, "between 2012 and 2016, one-third of organizations will change backup vendors due to frustration over cost, complexity and/or capability."
