Quorum Reveals Predictions for the 2013 Disaster Recovery Market
M&A Activity and Increase in Weather-Related Disasters Among Top Five Influencers

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- Quorum®, the leading provider of one-click backup, recovery and continuity for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced five predictions for the disaster recovery market next year. From mergers and acquisitions to climate change to the explosion of hybrid cloud solutions, these predictions serve as a reliable roadmap as we anticipate what 2013 holds for disaster recovery.

Prediction 1: Small to mid-sized businesses will pioneer the use of hybrid cloud disaster recovery.
Now hailed by industry research behemoths like Gartner, the hybrid cloud is moving from buzz to business, as small to mid-sized businesses have found great benefit in applying it to disaster recovery. Crippled by the inherent drawbacks of tape and disk backup solutions, small to mid-sized businesses will in the coming year increasingly embrace hybrid cloud disaster recovery, which blends on-site with cloud-based recovery. Using this approach, these businesses will eliminate the need for a secondary disaster recovery site, as well as the costs and complexities associated with maintaining and managing it.

Prediction 2: M&A activity will mean consolidation of disaster recovery solutions.
The disaster recovery market in 2012 has seen an uptick in M&As, with larger brands intent on expanding their disaster recovery offerings via acquisition. For example, this year, Carbonite acquired Zmanda and Microsoft acquired StorSimple. This trend will continue next year, with companies like eVault and Symantec, which have struggled to maintain leadership positions in the market, purchasing smaller providers in order to expand their portfolios and offer increasingly popular hybrid cloud disaster recovery solutions.

Prediction 3: More emphasis will be placed on recovery, as opposed to backup.
For small to mid-sized businesses, the disaster recovery issue is not necessarily about backup; rather, it's about how fast they're back up. Certainly, the ability to quickly recover data, applications and systems after downtime is a major indicator of whether a company can bounce back unscathed from a disaster. We were reminded of this yet again after Superstorm Sandy, when downtime forced thousands of businesses to close their doors. Whether these businesses will reopen anytime soon remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: For those that relied only on solutions focusing on backup rather than recovery, the financial toll will be significant.

Prediction 4: An increase in the number of weather-related disasters will necessitate hybrid cloud disaster recovery.
The only thing predictable about Mother Nature is her unpredictability, and it seems as though we'll see a lot more of it in the years to come. Indeed, thanks to climate change, the number of so-called "hundred-year storms" will occur with much more frequency, leaving in their wake destruction and chaos. (Before labeling climate change as a political issue, consider this: Even non-partisan insurance companies recognize its impact, raising their rates to reflect the increase in weather-related disasters caused by global warming.) With this in mind, small to mid-sized businesses will turn to simple and cost-effective hybrid cloud disaster recovery to make business continuity a reality.

Prediction 5: Availability of automated disaster recovery testing will spur a shift in focus from machines to people.
With the virtualization and automation of disaster recovery testing tasks, IT professionals will be able to reduce the time they spend performing technical procedures like tape restoration, and instead focus on involving end users themselves in disaster drills. Indeed, small to mid-sized businesses currently automating these tasks have found that involving end users in disaster drills translates to successful recovery when the real thing strikes.

"Whether economic, technological or environmental, several elements have combined to ensure 2013 is the year of recovery and the hybrid cloud," said Larry Lang, CEO, Quorum. "With its one-click backup, recovery and continuity solution, Quorum will continue to figure prominently in the disaster recovery discussion next year and in the years to come."
