HOSTING is Once Again Recognized in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting
Friday, August 14, 2015
HOSTING is proud to be recognized once again in Gartner Inc.’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting in North America. This is the fourth year running that HOSTING has been included in the prestigious industry report from the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Hosting is the equivalent of the Oscars for the managed cloud services industry, with only a select few companies taking home the honor. This year, only 19 companies made the cut. Gartner evaluation criteria are centered on a provider’s ability to execute, as well as a provider’s completeness of vision. In recognizing our broad range of cloud-based solutions, Gartner highlighted the following HOSTING solutions and services that separate us from the field.
- Our commitment to serving organizations that face stringent compliance requirements as prescribed by HIPAA and PCI DSS. HOSTING is one of the few compliant cloud hosting providers with a dedicated team of certified information security and compliance experts led by an in-house Chief Information Security Officer. Fluent in the complexities of compliant cloud hosting, they provide custom Compliance-as-a-Service to help organizations successfully meet security and compliance obligations. HOSTING also sets the bar by offering 100% Audit Assurance.
- Gartner also calls out HOSTING for bringing “innovative disaster recovery management capabilities into its customer portal, providing customers real-time views on the status of data replication an current recovery point objectives.”
- Finally, Gartner recognizes HOSTING as one of the few providers that go beyond the norm to offer one of the industry’s tightest, most customer-friendly service level agreements.
Ignoring the standard, “one-size-fits-all” approach to cloud solutions, HOSTING continues to set the standard in delivering secure, compliant managed cloud services and open technologies that empower organizations to transform their businesses and lead their industries. As Gartner mentioned in its Magic Quadrant, “HOSTING has a forward-looking vision” in providing a complete unified cloud solution on the AWS, Azure and OpenStack cloud platforms. The HOSTING Unified Cloud™ provides customers with unprecedented flexibility to develop, run and manage custom applications in the cloud without the burden of vendor lock-in.
Based on our experience serving 200 healthcare customers, HOSTING has also led the industry in introducing the HOSTING Healthcare Cloud™ – a secure, fully managed cloud solution that meets and exceeds compliance requirements for HIPAA, PCI and SOX.
At HOSTING, our mission is simple – to provide the best customer experience for companies running mission-critical applications in the cloud, supported by the industry’s best team. While recognition in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the fourth year running is certainly gratifying, the opportunity to serve and guide our 3,000+ customers in their business journeys is our most important reward.
