 Leader: Amazon Web Services

More than 13 years since it pioneered the IaaS market, Amazon Web Services is highest on Gartner's Magic Quadrant in both vision and execution.

Still far-and-away the largest cloud infrastructure provider, AWS appeals to customers with traditional legacy apps and those looking for agile, cloud-native operations.

"AWS is the provider most commonly chosen for strategic, organizationwide adoption," Gartner said.

But the analyst noted cloud transformation projects on AWS are best done in conjunction with a systems integrator.

Strengths:

Customers, from startups to SMBs to large enterprises, spend more, and deploy more mission-critical workloads, on AWS than any of its hyper-scale competitors.

"This speaks to how enterprises perceive AWS as a strategic provider of cloud infrastructure and platform services relative to other providers in the market.

In short, "AWS is the most mature, enterprise-ready provider, with the strongest track record of customer success and the most useful partner ecosystem."

Cautions:

Gartner warned customers to be wary of the "frequent proclamations" of price reductions. They are not applicable to AWS services in a broad sense.

Also, because AWS prioritizes being first to market with new capabilities, it's willing to launch feature-poor services, or those without deep cross-platform integrations.

Gartner also warned AWS partners that Amazon's aggressive pushes into new markets often threatens existing vendors in those verticals, and their boards often direct IT to avoid AWS if possible.
