Gartner Lists AWS part of leaders on Cloud Infrastructure

The 2019 Magic Quadrant report named Amazon Web Services (AWS) as one of the top leading providers for cloud Infrastructure as a Services (IaaS).

“The market views both AWS and Microsoft as being general-purpose providers capable of supporting a broad range of workloads,” pulled from the Gartner 2019 report published last week. “Google is making steady progress in terms of enterprise adoption, but it remains in a distant third place in terms of overall annual revenue and interest among Gartner’s enterprise clients. All other vendors in this market are forced to focus on regional dominance or niche workloads given the momentum of AWS and Microsoft, and the scale at which they operate.”

Gartner listed AWS strengths as including:

  • Enterprises make larger annual financial commitments and deploy more mission-critical workloads on AWS than with any other hyper-scale provider.
  • AWS has a broader range of customer profiles, ranging from startups and small and midsize businesses (SMBs) to large enterprises, than any other provider in this market.
  • AWS is the most mature, enterprise-ready provider, with the strongest track record of customer success and the most useful partner ecosystem.
