Learn from Gartner what the Critical Capabilities for Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service were for 2014. Gartner evaluates 15 public cloud IaaS service providers, listed in the 2014 Magic Quadrant, against eight critical capabilities and for four common use cases your enterprise manages today.
Gartner takes an in-depth look at the critical capabilities for:
- Application Development – for the needs of large teams of developers building new applications
- Batch Computing – including high-performance computing (HPC), data analytics and other one-time (but potentially recurring), short-term, large-scale, scale-out workloads
- Cloud Native Applications – for applications at any scale, which have been written with the strengths and weaknesses of public cloud IaaS in mind
- General Business Applications – for applications not designed with the cloud in mind, but that can run comfortably in virtualized environments
