Virtustream and Datapipe lead the latest Forrester Wave evaluation of hosted private cloud solutions, topping 14 other providers — AT&T, Blue Box, Canopy, CenturyLink, Computer Sciences Corp. (CSC), Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Joyent, Orange Business Services, Rackspace, Verizon, VMware, and VooServers — based on current offering, strategy, and market presence.

“Simply put, hosted private cloud is an emerging market with a recent influx of new providers,” writes Analyst Lauren Nelson. “Direct comparisons with the public and internal private cloud market quickly show that these offerings aren’t quite finalized and neatly packaged. There is a clear division between vendors that see this market as a hosted version of private cloud and those that see it as a dedicated public cloud solution.”
