Peak 10 Positioned in the 2017 Gartner Disaster Recovery as a Service, North America Magic Quadrant

Peak 10 has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Niche quadrant of the company’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service – North America [1]. To meet the evolving needs of its customers, Peak 10 continues to improve its DRaaS solutions. Although not in time for inclusion in this Magic Quadrant, the company recently launched:

  • Extended Journaling, a new failback expansion feature of the Recovery Cloud, which gives customers the ability to expand DR testing capabilities and recover data quickly to previous points in time up to 14 days earlier, significantly lowering an organization’s operational risk and potential for data loss in the event of a disaster.
  • Three tiers of cost-effective, flexible and secure disaster recovery – Recovery Cloud Premium, Recovery Cloud Prime and Recovery Cloud Essentials – that ensure rapid recovery of mission-critical applications and minimal data loss in the event of a failure.

These updates provide Peak 10 customers with broad support of disaster testing strategies, including multi-day exercises; reduces the risk of data loss through self-service control of data replication journaling; automates recovery of complex applications to precise point-in-time and increases disaster preparedness.

2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant Disaster Recovery as a Service chart

Gartner defines Disaster Recovery as a Service as a service offering which includes replication of server workloads and recovery of such workloads, as needed, to a cloud with which the provider ultimately has fiscal responsibility. The service may be fully-managed or self-service; replication and recovery may be high-touch or automated via software; and the target location and cloud infrastructure with which the workloads are replicated and recovered may be owned by the provider or a third party such as a hyperscale public cloud provider.

A Magic Quadrant can serve as a first step in evaluating potential vendors within a specific market. By seeing how some of the key service providers in a market compare to one another — and how well they are executing on their stated visions — you can create a short-list of those you’d like to consider.
