The report is based on a pool of more than 130 products in DCIG's Backup Appliance Body of Research. DCIG analysts ranked hybrid cloud backup appliances based on an evaluation of more than 100 different features.  Using an eight-step process to rank its tested products, the DCIG Buyer's Guide provides an objective, third-party evaluation of backup appliances that evaluates features from an end user's viewpoint.

According to the DCIG research, the purpose-built backup appliance market is growing as part of an ongoing shift toward pre-integrated appliance-based solutions that can be rapidly deployed and ever-increasing data volumes, which strain corporate backup abilities and create a need for new solutions. While other backup and data optimization technologies offer some relief, PBBA's have become the go to solution.
