The Forrester Wave™: Private Cloud Solutions, Q4 2013

Three Vendors Rise To The Top Of The Private Cloud Market

    Why Read This Report

    In Forrester's 61-criteria evaluation of private cloud solution vendors, we identified the 10 most significant software providers — ASG Software Solutions, BMC Software, CA Technologies, Cisco Systems, Citrix Systems, Eucalyptus Systems, HP, IBM, Microsoft, and VMware — in the category and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills the breadth and depth of our criteria and where each stands out to help infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals select the most full-featured private cloud solution. I&O pros can also customize criteria weightings to align with their own private cloud initiative. This report focuses on commercial-software-only private infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud solutions and serves as a refresh to Forrester's "Market Overview: Private Cloud Solutions, Q2 2011" report.
