Actifio

Actifio Enterprise is a great tool to use for data protection and disaster recovery at the enterprise level. It can create one master copy of your data and then replicate that data out via snapshots to local or cloud-based targets. I don't think this product would be a good fit to small to medium sized companies because it is on the expensive side.

IBM

I think that larger environments with a higher percentage of physical systems that require backup along side the virutalization environment sticking with a single backup/archive solution such as Spectrum Protect with Spectrum Protect for VE is still the most efficient use of administrators' time and energy. For small shops that are looking for ease of use - this is a perfect fit.
