Here's Who Made Gartner's 2018 Magic Quadrant For Cloud IaaS

Joseph Tsidulko

Methodology

The Gartner Magic Quadrant ranks cloud vendors on two criteria: Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.

Execution is represented on the Y-axis of Gartner's chart; vision on the X-axis. That lands competitors into one of four quadrants: Niche Players (low in both criteria), Visionaries (complete vision but lacking execution), Challengers (good execution but lacking vision), and Leaders (excelling in both vision and execution).

Among the six providers evaluated this year, three landed in the Leaders Quadrant (Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform), and the three others were relegated to Niche Player status (Oracle, Alibaba, and IBM).
