We’re proud to announce that REAN Cloud has been recognized in Gartner’s March, 2017 Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Service Providers (MSP), Worldwide report. We more than held our own when evaluated along with 19 other MSPs and were positioned furthest to the right for the completeness of vision and highest for ability to execute out of all the other Niche Players.
This graphic was published by Gartner, Inc. as part of a larger research document and should be evaluated in the context of the entire document. The Gartner document is available upon request from REAN Cloud.
The report, the first to cover this category, assessed 20 infrastructure MSPs worldwide that offer managed and professional services related to infrastructure and platform operations for one or more hyperscale integrated IaaS and PaaS providers – specifically, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
We believe that we are poised to be counted in the Leader quadrant in the next report.
Among others, we think some of our greatest strengths include our ease of integration, flexible pricing model and our ability to assist customers in achieving DevOps agility. Not to mention our stellar enterprise customer base itself.
At REAN Cloud we use a set of integrated tools to deliver the entire service life cycle for our customers. This toolset includes cloud management platform (CMP) functionality as well as more general IT operations management (ITOM) capabilities and we use both commercial software and internally developed software so we can flexibly integrate the customer’s CI/CD pipeline, and provide automated support for day-to-day infrastructure maintenance activities. The tools we use also provide a well-structured, automation-supported set of capabilities for security, regulatory compliance, performance and availability.
“Cloud IaaS adoption is bimodal; consequently, the adoption of public cloud infrastructure MSPs is also bimodal. Mode 1 safety-and-efficiency-oriented customers have different requirements from Mode 2 agility-oriented customers, although MSPs can leverage their CMP capabilities and automation and technical expertise across both types of customers.” Gartner Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Service Providers, Worldwide; Lydia Leong, Gregor Petri, Michael Warrilow, Mike Dorosh, Ron Blair; March 2, 2017.
REAN Cloud supports both modes equally. We believe our customers shouldn’t have to sacrifice support on either mode especially during an already-challenging transformation.
“Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is focused on MSPs that have:
- Deep technical expertise with hyperscale providers
- Capable cloud management platforms
- Managed services that leverage automation where possible and
- The ability to deliver cloud-optimized solutions regardless of whether a customer is deploying new cloud-native applications or migrating legacy workloads from an existing traditional data center”
“This depth of expertise and technical integration, including exploiting the API-enabled automation of hyperscale providers, distinguishes these MSPs from the legion of data center outsourcing (DCO) providers that offer solutions that largely treat hyperscale providers as if they were simply virtualization platforms.” Gartner Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Service Providers, Worldwide; Lydia Leong, Gregor Petri, Michael Warrilow, Mike Dorosh, Ron Blair; March 2, 2017.
At REAN Cloud we help accelerate business by increasing the frequency of innovation and reducing the burden and complexity of cloud migration and continued managed services for our customers. We help business to implement a next-generation managed services platform that includes continuous compliance, DevOps pipelines and auto-healing services.
