– Provider named a Niche Player in 2016 Magic Quadrant for DRaaS –London-based provider Databarracks has been recognised in Gartner’s June 2016 Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service.

Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, has positioned Databarracks in the Niche Players quadrant for a second consecutive year.
Peter Groucutt, managing director at Databarracks, commented on the announcement:“We’re thrilled to be included in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service for a second year. We believe that to be recognised as a niche player in the global market is a testament to our success over the past 12 months.
“We provide flexible management processes and rapid failover times. Providing a service that meets each of our customers’ requirements is something that we pride ourselves on. We’re not a one-size-fits-all operation, we build personal relationships with our clients to really understand their needs.
“We were early to the cloud disaster recovery market and coined the term Virtual Disaster Recovery.
In the last few years there has been a surge in interest in cloud based DR.

DRaaS is so significant because organisations can reduce their costs and improve their recovery compared with traditional disaster recovery services.
“Organisations don’t want the expense of running secondary data centres purely for disaster recovery. With DRaaS, they get the flexibility of cloud computing combined with recovery experts they can rely on to get them up and running again in the event of a disaster.
“We’ve worked very hard over the last year, developing our services and educating the market on recovery best practice. We introduced a suite of tools to allow organisations to track and measure their risk, benchmark their resilience and map their technology dependencies to the systems that support their business. We developed a DR testing simulator and have recently launched The Business Continuity Podcast to show organisations without dedicated BCP practitioners how the experts do it.
“We have also been investing in developing the next generation of disaster recovery services which we will be launching in the coming months.”
Gartner evaluates providers based on their ability to execute and their completeness of vision.

Groucutt is especially proud of his organisation’s position due to its relative size within the market:“Compared to a lot of our competitors in the disaster recovery area, we’re considered a fairly small organisation.

As a UK-only provider, we were ecstatic to be recognised in a report that is so globally revered.

To be recognised alongside such big, global providers and to be edging ever-closer toward the “visionaries” quadrant, we believe is proof that our hard work is paying off.”
