Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Worldwide was released today, evaluating 10 different vendors for ‘completeness of vision’ and ‘ability to execute.’ Although AWS continues to face more competition, we know it remains a market share leader in the industry. Gartner has placed AWS as having both the furthest completeness of vision and the highest ability to execute.
Because the market for cloud IaaS is in a state of upheaval, with many service providers shifting their strategies after failing to gain enough market traction, 2nd Watch recommends utilizing Gartner’s Magic Quadrant to help eliminate the confusion around the various providers in the Infrastructure as a Service sector.
