Microsoft Is The Only Company That Is Positioned As A Leader In Four Cloud Related Gartner’s Magic Quadrants

Microsoft today highlighted in a blog post that they are the only company that is positioned as a Leader in four Gartner’s Magic Quadrants for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, x86 Server Virtualization, Enterprise Application Platform as a Service and Public Cloud Storage Services. You have Amazon, Google, IBM, Salesforce, VMWare and few others, but Microsoft has a unique set of capabilities to help enterprise customers provision and manage their infrastructure, whether it is on-premises, in a Microsoft datacenter, or delivered by a hosting service provider.

Only Microsoft has achieved recognition as a Leader across all four capability areas.

  • Cloud Infrastructure as a Service: We feel the pace of innovation in our cloud solutions led to much greater customer adoption in the past year, contributing to a very strong showing in the Cloud IaaS space.
  • x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure: Recognized as a leader for the fourth year in a row, Windows Server 2012 R2 with Hyper-V continues to deliver an enterprise-class datacenter that customers can depend on.
  • Enterprise Application Platform as a Service: Azure has added over 200 new services since last year, delivering a more complete portfolio and enabling customers to focus on creating the next generation of amazing apps without having to worry about managing the full stack.
  • Public Cloud Storage Services: One of two vendors listed as a leader in this area. We believe the integration of our server, management and cloud offerings was key to success.
