Updated MQ Status

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

Last update: Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

We really encourage you to look at our Recommended Reading!

The last “Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service” was published on May 18th, 2015. (If you’re not a client, see the free reprint.)

We will be refreshing this Magic Quadrant in May of 2016, keeping this MQ on a 12-month update cycle.

 

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 infrastructure-related capabilities and manage the operations themselves, whether those resources are multi-tenant or single-tenant, hosted by the service provider or on-premises. This evaluation contains significant PaaS infrastructure elements as well, owing to the increasing convergence and integration of the IaaS and PaaS markets.

(This 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 14th: Confirmation of contacts.
  • December 16th: Send out pre-qualification survey.
  • January 15th:Deadline for returning the pre-qualification survey.
  • January 20th: Inclusion notices sent out.

The timeline for included vendors will be (approximately) as follows:

  • February 5th: Deadline for service detail data.
  • February 5th: Deadline for briefings and documentation.
  • February 26th: Deadline for supplemental information.
  • Mid-March: Draft for vendor review.

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