Look Who Made Gartner's Cloud Magic Quadrant


Challenger: GoGrid

GoGrid, according to Gartner, is a small cloud IaaS-focused provider with fixed-size, paid-by-the-VM, Xen-virtualized IaaS as a public cloud and private cloud, with optional managed services.

Strengths: GoGrid is among the top five public cloud IaaS providers in the use of VMs and is one of the few providers that has a standard architecture across its public and private cloud offerings, according to Gartner.

Caution: The company develops its software entirely in-house, which allows it to keep costs down but also results in long-term challenges in competing with providers that can allocate significant resources to R&D, Gartner said.
