WAYNE, Pa., July 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Evolve IP, The Cloud Services Company™, today announced that it has been recognized in Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). As noted in the report, Gartner included just 20 firms in the Magic Quadrant of over 250 available providers. Evolve IP’s addition comes after a series of analyst interviews, service evaluations and customer references which confirmed the company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Disaster recovery is a rapidly growing cloud service. In fact, Gartner estimates that from 2016 through 2020, the use of either DRaaS or IaaS to support the failover of production applications will grow by more than 200%. Evolve IP’s exclusive research of 2,000+ IT professionals and executives concurs. Of those surveyed, less than half, 45.5%, felt they were “very prepared” to recover their assets in the event of a disaster and more than one third (34.5%) had suffered from an incident that required disaster recovery.

“We are very pleased to be included in Gartner’s DRaaS Magic Quadrant and for the feedback we received from the analysts and the customers they interviewed,” said Scott Kinka, Chief Technology and Product Officer and Founding Partner of Evolve IP. “Our DRaaS offering has been incredibly well received in the market and we expect it to continue to generate excitement and opportunities for growth along with our other cloud services. We are uniquely positioned in the market among DRaaS providers with the ability to provide multiple cloud computing and cloud communications services – a great benefit for businesses looking to work with a single cloud services provider.”
