DCIG 2016-17 Deduplicating Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide Editions Now Available

DCIG is pleased to announce the availability of the following DCIG 2016-17 Deduplicating Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide Editions developed from the backup appliance body of research. Other Buyer’s Guide Editions based on this body of research will be published in the coming weeks and months, including the 2016-17 Integrated Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide and 2016-17 Hybrid Cloud Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide Editions.

Buyer’s Guide Editions being released on September 20, 2016:

  • DCIG 2016-17 Sub-$100K Deduplicating Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guid
  • DCIG 2016-17 Sub-$75K Deduplicating Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide
  • DCIG 2016-17 Sub-$50K Deduplicating Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide
  • DCIG 2016-17 US Enterprise Deduplicating Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide

DCIG 2016-17 Deduplicating Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide Edition had to meet the following criteria:

  • Be intended for the deduplication of backup data, primarily target-based deduplication
  • Includes an NAS (network attached storage) interface
  • Supports CIFS (Common Internet File System) or NFS (Network File System) protocols
  • Supports a minimum of two (2) hard disk drives and/or a minimum raw capacity of eight terabytes
  • Be formally announced or generally available for purchase on July 1, 2016

The various Deduplicating Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide Editions are based on at least one additional criterion, whether list price (Sub-$100K, Sub-$75K and Sub-$50K) or being from a US-based provider.

By using the DCIG Analysis Portal and applying these criteria to its body of research into backup appliances, DCIG analysts were able to quickly create a short list of products that meet these requirements which was then, in turn, used to create Buyer’s Guide Editions to publish and release. DCIG plans to use this same process to create future Buyer’s Guide Editions that examine hybrid cloud and integrated backup appliances among others.

End users registering to access any of these reports via the DCIG Analysis Portal also gain access to the DCIG Interactive Buyer’s Guide (IBG). The IBG enables organizations take the next step in the product selection process by generating custom reports, including comprehensive side-by- side feature comparisons of the products in which the organization is most interested.

Additional information about each buyer’s guide edition, including a download link, is available on the DCIG Buyer’s Guides page.
