The Gartner Magic Quadrant is widely recognized as one of the most influential market analysis for enterprises seeking to evaluate cloud and hosting vendors. The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud IaaS and Web Hosting is a representation of the marketplace during a specific time period. It depicts Gartner’s analysis of how certain vendors measure against criteria for that marketplace, as defined by Gartner. This Magic Quadrant assessed the “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute” of 20 cloud infrastructure and web hosting providers.

According to Gartner, vendors listed in the leaders quadrant “have proved they have staying power in this market, can frequently innovate on their existing products and can be relied on for enterprise-class needs. They have proved their technical competence and ability to deliver services to a wide range of customers. They address multiple use cases well.”

“New managed hosting customers should sign two-year contracts with these companies. Satisfied customers renewing a contract with one of these firms should sign a three-year deal. Cloud IaaS customers should buy these services on demand, or in contracts of one year or less.”
