As per Gartner Worldwide Cloud IaaS Spending to Grow 32.8% in 2015. The new Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud IaaS report released on May 2015 places IaaS companies under the following categories:

  • Leaders: Amazon AWS and Microsoft 
  • Challengers: Unfortunately there are no challengers for Amazon/Microsoft as per the report. 
  • Visionaries: Google, VMWare, CenturyLink, IBM SoftLayer
  • Niche Players: Rackspace, CSC, Fujitsu, Verizon, Dimension Data etc.

Unfortunately HP’s Public Cloud is too small to be considered in the report. As HP already announced their exit from Cloud Computing.
