According to the Gartner report, “The disaster-recovery-as-a-service market consists of hundreds of providers, all with different approaches and capabilities. This diversity creates immense complexity around vendor selection. Infrastructure and operations leaders should use this Magic Quadrant to help evaluate providers of DRaaS.”

This is Flexential’s first time to be named in the report under its new brand, following the combination of Peak 10 and ViaWest in August 2017. Previously, Peak 10 was included in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service from 2015-2017.

“It is a great honor to be included in this Magic Quadrant report, and we believe it is evidence of how we continue to innovate to support the growing needs of our customers,” said Mike Fuhrman, Chief Product Officer, Flexential. “We feel that our ability to support managed recovery use cases through providing tiered service levels, in combination with our highly secure interconnected backbone, allows us to meet the varying needs of business continuity and disaster recovery leaders who require the highest dependability.”

In March 2019, Flexential announced two new DRaaS locations in Denver and Portland, Ore., bringing Flexential’s total disaster recovery footprint to seven facilities, located in metropolitan areas including Atlanta, Charlotte, Louisville, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia.
