The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Worldwide, delivers an in-depth analysis of cloud (IaaS) use cases and specific vendor offerings. It features insights into bimodal sourcing criteria and evaluation patterns to help you decide where and how to deploy your applications and workloads to cloud IaaS.
CenturyLink’s platform strategy is rooted in the belief that our broader range of automated services across management, infrastructure, and network frees up a greater level of customer resources than would be achieved by purely focusing at the cloud computing layer. We feel this is a differentiated and unique approach compared to other service providers in the Gartner Magic Quadrant, and one we look forward to discussing with our customers seeking a digital transformation of their own.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) analyzes cloud IaaS providers and offerings for both public and private cloud. The goal is to offer insight into the cloud IaaS resources, the automated management of those resources, the management tools delivered as services, and the cloud software infrastructure services. When customers look for cloud IaaS, they generally fall into one of two IT sourcing patterns: Mode 1 and Mode 2. Mode 1 customers are looking for more traditional IT and place an emphasis on cost reduction, safety, and security. Mode 2 customers look to cloud IaaS for their agile IT structure, and emphasize developer productivity and business agility. While most cloud IaaS has traditionally been bought for Mode 2, there has been an increase in Mode 1.
CenturyLink's platform strategy is rooted in the ability to deliver the breadth of our capabilities in an API-accessible and composable fashion. Our managed services platform successfully blends the self-service and managed service models across a hybrid solution portfolio. In our Niche Player role for 2017, Gartner has recognized us for moving closer to "visionary" status. We are also seen as a provider that can meet the needs of both Mode 1 and Mode 2 buyers with our wide range of service models that can provide stability and agility for global enterprises, with a complete portfolio of "agile infrastructure" products and managed services. We continue to focus on digital transformation where security, geography, and connectivity matter: in the form of composable, documented, consistent service modules.
