MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – May 5, 2015. Geminare, the #1 ranked leader in Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) enablement, today announced a significant accomplishment for its partners, NTT Communications (NTT Com) and Cable & Wireless Communication’s Columbus Business Solutions (Columbus), with both partners securing prominent positions within the Disaster Recovery as a Service Gartner Magic Quadrant.

Gartner Magic Quadrants, recognized globally and published annually, represent the gold standard for technology evaluation and service provider rankings.  In its inaugural Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Gartner evaluated top DRaaS providers, assessing their capabilities in communication services, DR/BC recovery services, hosting and infrastructure as a service, and direct cloud recovery.

NTT Com, the information and communications technology (ICT) solutions business within NTT Group(NYSE: NTT), secured an extremely strong position within the DRaaS Leadership quadrant, reflecting its emergence as a global powerhouse in the rapidly accelerating market.

Columbus Business Solutions, a leading ICT provider to Latin American markets, was named as a prominent Challenger, clearly reflecting its dominant position within the DRaaS market.

Both NTT Com and Columbus Business Solutions utilize Geminare’s Cloud Management Platform (CMP) to deliver DRaaS.  The patented CMP is the cornerstone technology underlying Gartner’s recognition of Geminare as a “Gartner Cool Vendor in Business Continuity and IT Disaster Recovery Management.” The designation acknowledges the robust management infrastructure as one of the most mature, proven offerings in the market today.

Joshua Geist, Geminare’s President and CEO, commented on their success, stating, “I’m delighted that the Gartner Magic Quadrant has identified both NTT Com and Columbus as top-tier DRaaS providers. Being positioned within the Leadership quadrant is confirmation that NTT Com is not only succeeding but leading in one of the fastest growing service areas within the Cloud.  Equally impressive is Columbus’ designation as a strong Challenger within the Magic Quadrant given its positioning as a regional player servicing Latin and Central America.”  Geist added, “The entire Geminare organization could not be more proud of the work that our partners are doing, the success they are achieving, and the recognition that is following.”
