The Forrester Wave™: Hosted Private Cloud, Q1 2013
No Dominant Market Leaders Today, But Front-Runners Are CSC And Rackspace
January 17, 2013
Why Read This Report
Forrester's Forrsights Hardware Survey, Q3 2012 showed that 46% of enterprises are prioritizing investments in private clouds in 2013. While slightly more than half plan to build a private cloud in their own data center, more than 25% said they prefer to rent one. But which cloud hosting provider should you choose? Last year, we published two market overviews on the private and public cloud markets. This emerging market Forrester Wave™ report focuses on this hosted alternative that sits somewhere between the prior two options. In our 25-criteria evaluation of hosted private cloud vendors, we identified the eight most significant providers — CSC, GoGrid, Hexagrid Computing, Joyent, Rackspace, Savvis, SoftLayer Technologies, and Virtustream. This report details our findings on how well each vendor fulfills enterprise I&O customer requirements to help I&O pros select the right partner for their hosted private solution.
