This month Gartner launched its first ever Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) Magic Quadrant Report and we’re pleased to announce that Sungard AS has been positioned in the leaders’ quadrant.
When compiling this quadrant, Gartner evaluated 14 DRaaS providers on their ability to execute on various criteria including product/service, overall viability, sales execution/pricing, market responsiveness/record, marketing execution, customer experience and operations and completeness of vision. Within this leaders’ quadrant Sungard AS is positioned as the best for both completeness of vision and ability to execute.
In an age where All-timeTM availability is no longer a nice to have but an expectation, any amount of downtime could provide costly to businesses large or small. Not every organisation has the means to have traditional recovery infrastructure in place, which has given rise to Disaster Recovery as a Service.
The resilience of an organisation’s IT environment is crucial in ensuring results can be consistently delivered, even at time of test and disaster. Our DRaaS solutions are designed to be flexible enough to work with complex, hybrid IT production and recovery environments, and to scale up and down based on requirements driven by specific business results, addressing a full range of recovery time and recovery point objectives.
We offer a holistic approach to business resilience that continues to change the face of the DRaaS industry, which we believe further enhances our leadership position in the highly complex market for advanced recovery solutions.
For businesses considering adopting DRaaS we have compiled these top four tips:
As this service continues to grow and become more important to businesses it’s great that DRaaS is now a mature enough proposition to drive a Gartner Magic Quadrant, and we’re absolutely thrilled that Sungard AS has been recognised as an industry leader in this space.
