Visionary: Virtustream

Virtustream focuses solely on cloud services and offers hypervisor-neutral public and private IaaS on its xStream platform, with managed services optional.

Strengths: The company has a strong consultative approach, as well as particular expertise in SAP. Its cloud focuses on production applications, but it targets both traditional enterprise workloads, including ERP applications, as well as cloud-native applications, Gartner said.

Caution: Virtustream supports a solid set of self-service features, but its primary focus is complex, mission-critical applications, "where it is likely that the customer will purchase professional services assistance for implementation, and managed services on an ongoing basis," Gartner said.
