Date: 2015-07-02

US-based research and advisory firm, Gartner MQ has reported that by 2016, 20% of organisations currently using traditional back up and recovery techniques today will be using only snapshot and replication for the majority of their data; by 2017, the number of organisations using cloud as a backup destination will double from the 12% today. By 2019, it is expected that there will be a 60% increase in the number of large enterprises eliminating tape for operational recovery.
