In this report, Gartner analysts note that, "The interest in archiving data using cloud or software as a service (SaaS) solutions has intensified,” noting further than, "This deployment model is rapidly evolving, and organizations now have solid options for on-premises and SaaS or hybrid solutions. Hybrid solutions consist of some component (usually an appliance) that resides on-premises that can provide additional processing prior to sending data to the cloud, such as bandwidth throttling, encryption or data reduction. In addition, hybrid solutions can provide tight integration with Active Directory or the email system.”

Email Archiving: About Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving

Gartner, Inc.'s Magic Quadrant positions vendors in a particular market segment based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute.

According to the report, "EIA is the next step in the evolution of archiving that incorporates new products and solutions for archiving user files (email and files on file shares) and, optionally, other content types such as instant messages, SharePoint, structured data and social media content. These products provide features such as data deduplication across content types, retention management, content indexing and at least basic tools for e-discovery, such as search and legal hold. Due to the complexity associated with managing multiple data types within an archive, EIA may more broadly encompass capabilities like federated archive repository management, while delivering common policy management for migration, retention and discovery."
