(The Hosting News) – GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure company, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the Challengers quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service”(IaaS) report published October 18, 2012.
“It’s second nature for GoGrid to challenge the concept of traditional hosting,” said Jeffrey Samuels, GoGrid’s CMO. “Over the last decade, our innovative approach has allowed companies to use automation to provision and manage complex infrastructure. Manual, one-size-fits-all solutions just don’t work in today’s business environment. Instead, our services let each customer tailor a solution that’s as unique as its business. We believe being positioned in the Challengers Quadrant affirms how our model is transforming the industry’s understanding of the cloud.”
According to the report, “Cloud compute infrastructure as a service (a virtual data center of compute, storage and network resources delivered as a service) is a still-maturing, rapidly evolving market. Each service provider has a unique offering, and the sourcing of these services must be done with care. …Only cloud compute IaaS is evaluated in this Magic Quadrant; it does not cover cloud storage providers, platform as a service (PaaS) providers, software as a service (SaaS) providers, cloud services brokerages or any other type of cloud service provider, nor should it be considered to be an evaluation of the broad, generalized cloud computing strategies of the vendors.”
