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.

Let us admit AWS and Azure rocks..
