Updated MQ Status

This is a convenient status-update page for those service providers participating in the Cloud IaaS Magic Quadrant.

Last update: Monday, January 5th, 2015

We really encourage you to look at our Recommended Reading!

The last “Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service” was published on May 28th, 2014. (If you’re not a client, see the free reprint.)

In 2015, we will be doing four Magic Quadrants: Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Worldwide; Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Japan; and three regional Magic Quadrants for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting (North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific).

Cloud IaaS, Worldwide MQ

The “Magic Quadrant for Cloud IaaS, Worldwide” continues the 9-month update cycle for the Magic Quadrant for Cloud IaaS. (This cycle has been delayed slightly in order to avoid the winter holidays.) We are aiming for publication at the beginning of April.

Like the previous Cloud IaaS MQ, it will be focused on true cloud IaaS — self-service, highly-automated, and on-demand, targeted at IT organizations that want to obtain virtual data center resources and manage the operations themselves, whether those resources are multi-tenant or single-tenant, hosted by the service provider or on-premises. (It is strictly a service provider evaluation, focused on highly-standardized offerings, and even though private cloud IaaS will be part of the evaluation, providers must have a public cloud IaaS offering to qualify.)

The MQ is expected to proceed according to the following approximate timeline:

  • December 17th: Confirmation of contacts.
  • January 7th: Send out the survey.
  • January 23rd:Deadline for returning the survey.
  • January 30th: Inclusion notices sent out.
  • February 13th: Deadline for briefings for included vendors.
  • February 20th: Deadline for supplemental data.
  • Mid-to-late March: Draft for vendor review.

Like all Magic Quadrant timelines, this one is subject to change.
