Gartner positions Bluelock in the Challengers Quadrant
Cloud computing is revolutionizing how enterprises consume information technology. Disruptive cloud technologies have created new efficiencies and opportunities for enterprises. Cloud services have enabled enterprises to better compete in changing markets, be more agile, and optimize resource utilization.
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service defines “cloud IaaS” as a standardized, highly automated offering, where compute resources, complemented by storage and networking capabilities, are owned by a service provider and offered to the customer on demand.

What is the Magic Quadrant?
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.
Research for the “Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service” evaluated cloud IaaS providers in the context of the fastest-growing use case among Gartner clients: the desire to have a “datacenter in the cloud,” where the customer retains most of the IT operations responsibility. According to Gartner, Challengers are well-positioned to serve current market needs. They deliver a good service that is targeted at a particular set of use cases, and they have a track record of successful delivery and many referenceable customers. They typically have a road map that is well focused on the customer segments that they serve, but it is not broadly ambitious, although they are making significant investments in the business.
Why is Bluelock’s inclusion important?
Cloud compute infrastructure as a service (a virtual datacenter of compute, storage and network resources delivered as a network) 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. Reviewing the report will provide perspective in today’s competitive cloud landscape.
