Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (Worldwide) (2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012…)


In the context of this Magic Quadrant, cloud compute IaaS (hereafter referred to simply as “cloud IaaS” or “IaaS”) is defined as a standardized, highly automated offering, where compute resources, complemented by storage and networking capabilities, are owned by a service provider and offered to the customer on demand. The resources are scalable and elastic in near real time, and metered by use. Self-service interfaces are exposed directly to the customer, including a web-based UI and an API. The resources…

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 )


According to Gartner, Network performance monitoring and diagnostics (NPMD) enable network professionals to understand the impact of network behavior on application and infrastructure performance, and conversely, via network instrumentation. Other users and use cases exist, especially because these tools provide insight into the quality of the end-user experience. The fast-growing network performance monitoring and diagnostics market is helping businesses support more complex environments and services through network visibility, performance issue detection and root cause analysis. Leaders in this industry are innovating…

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers (2016, 2015,2014,2013,2012,2010)


Application delivery controllers (ADCs) are generally deployed in the data center and provide functions that optimize delivery of enterprise applications across the network. ADCs provide functionality for both user-to-application and application-to-application traffic. The ADC effectively bridges the gap between the application and underlying protocols and the traditional packet-based networks. The market evolved from load-balancing systems that were developed in the latter half of the 1990s to ensure the availability and scalability of websites. Enterprises use ADCs today to improve the…
