Forrester publishes report on disaster recovery as a service providers

In 'The Forrester Wave: Disaster-Recovery-As-A-Service Providers, Q1 2014' Rachel Dines overviews the current global market and ranks the key players.

The report says that there has been significant growth and adoption of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) across all sectors 'as I&O professionals are looking for ways to improve their recovery objectives without increasing spend'. The results of the latest Forrsights Hardware Survey show that 19 percent of 438 surveyed companies have implemented DRaaS already and a further 13 percent are planning to implement it during 2014.

Seventeen criteria are used by Forrester to provide an evaluation of DRaaS vendors. Using these, 12 companies were identified as 'the most significant service providers' : Axcient, Barracuda Networks, CenturyLink Technology Solutions, EVault, HP, IBM, iland, nScaled, Persistent Systems, Quorum, SunGard, and Verizon Terremark. Of these Forrester states that 'Iland and SunGard lead in a tight race of strong competitors' followed closely by IBM, nScaled, Verizon Terremark, and EVault.

The report is available from Forrester for a charge here. Alternatively it is currently available for no charge after registration at http://nScaled.com/ForresterWave
