Christine Burns from NetworkWorld assembled a list of the 10 most powerful IaaS companies. Burns created this list with help from analysts at Cloud Technology Partners, Current Analysis, Enterprise Strategy Group, Gartner, IDC, and Neovise.
The group was polled to name the companies they believed to have “the most influence in drawing enterprise customers into the realm of public cloud infrastructure.” Companies that made the top ten included, Amazon Web Services, IBM, VMware, and Bluelock.
Burns points to Bluelock’s “strong portal that includes many tools that allow customers to understand how much and which cloud-based services are costing them the most money.”
In addition to this NetworkWorld designation, Charles Babcock from Information Week showcased top IaaS providers from the IDC report, U.S. IT Buyer Survey Shows Outsourcers Bring Strength to Cloud. The findings from the report emphasized cloud vendors that survey respondents believed could provide Infrastructure-as-a-Service, for private and/or public, most effectively.
Diving deeper into the cloud, Burns identifies four must-have features of a successful private cloud in a separate Network World article, saying that there must be a self-service catalog of standard computing offerings available to users across the company.
With knowledgeable insight on how to build a private cloud, Bluelock CTO, Pat O’Day, weighs in, “True cloud means the users, and not IT, get to control the performance of their applications based on the resources they allocate to them.”
