Hosting. com Positioned in Leading Analyst Firm’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and Web Hosting

Annual Evaluation Is Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 24, 2011

Hosting. com, the leading provider of Always On infrastructure services for mission-critical applications, today announced its inclusion in the Gartner 2010 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and Web Hosting.

Gartner Inc., the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, published the 2010 Magic Quadrant as a comprehensive assessment of 20 industry-leading service providers. Gartner’s primary target audience for its research is the large number of enterprises that use their consulting services to help identify how they can integrate technology advances, limitations and opportunities into their strategic planning.

“We believe Hosting. com’s inclusion in the Gartner report reinforces that the organizational changes and rapid solution enhancements we made have quickly evolved to service the needs of enterprises leveraging cloud and hosting solutions,” said Art Zeile, CEO of Hosting. com. Zeile continued, “We feel Gartner’s recognition of Hosting. com as a Niche Player of cloud-based disaster recovery closely aligns with our mission to provide cost-effective, Always On solutions for our clients.”

In the December 22, 2010 report, Gartner analysts, Lydia Leong and Ted Chamberlin, analyze new opportunities for cost savings and business agility from cloud infrastructure deployments. As stated in the report, “Cloud IaaS is the future of outsourced hosting. Every company that offers Web hosting — including carriers, outsourcers and independent Web hosters — is being forced to evolve its business. …The bulk of IaaS will be delivered on virtualized fabrics, but it will continue to be common to have hybrid architectures that combine virtualized resources for scale-out tiers with dedicated servers for resource-intensive needs such as databases.”

Hosting. com has emerged as a leader in the cloud hosting marketplace over the last three years by creating three Cloud Supersites that are geographically-dispersed and connected; providing expansive migration and cloud management services; and by deploying PCI compliant public and private cloud combinations. In addition, Hosting. com’s cloud offers distinct high availability and recovery solutions for companies using VMware technologies. View our Customer Case Studies for further details.
