GoGrid Recognized in Leading Analyst Firm’s Magic Quadrant Report

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

GoGrid on Thursday announced that it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the Challenger's quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Managed Hosting" report.

"For more than a decade, GoGrid has been challenging traditional hosting, introducing impactful innovations that have allowed business to embrace automation in provisioning and managing complex infrastructure," said Jeffrey Samuels, GoGrid's CMO. "Gartner's positioning of GoGrid reaffirms how our model is transforming the industry's view of the cloud. Instead of providing labor-intensive cookie-cutter options, our services let each customer automate and tailor a solution that's as unique as its business."

According to the report, "Managed hosting solutions can be offered on both physical and virtualized infrastructures, including cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Managed hosting bundles Internet data center facilities together with provider managed servers, network, storage, and computing services. The infrastructure components may be physical or virtual, and may be dedicated or shared. This Magic Quadrant is focused on the enterprise-class, managed hosting market, regardless of whether the hosting is done on physical servers or a virtualized infrastructure."
