This IDC study examines the worldwide data protection and recovery software market for the period from 2012 to 2017.
"The worldwide data protection and recovery software market in 2012 experienced continued growth as a result of a broad-based economic recovery. In addition, the worldwide data protection and recovery software market posted significant gains because of the greater adoption of storage optimization technologies such as data deduplication and the growth of customers needing to extend their protection schema to their rapidly growing virtualized protection environments," said Robert Amatruda, research director for Data Protection and Recovery at IDC. "However, we have discovered incumbent vendors are vulnerable when customers reevaluate their data protection solutions, especially when customers are experiencing pain points associated with unabated data growth, the inability to meet aggressive SLAs, and a growing need to protect virtual machines (VMs)."
