The Gartner Magic Quadrant is widely recognized as one of the most
influential market analyses for enterprises seeking to evaluate cloud and
hosting vendors. Its evaluation is based on vendors' completeness of vision,
including market understanding, product strategy and innovation, among other
criteria. The Magic Quadrant also assesses ability to execute, which includes
operations and overall viability.
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."
