Why Read This Report

As the focus of computing infrastructure moves to cloud computing, the managed infrastructure services industry is also shifting. Managed cloud services have become the focus of a new class of suppliers spawned by Amazon Web Services (AWS), which has extended managed services into its public cloud with runaway success. Managed cloud isn't the province of one set of suppliers or type of services but rather a broad phenomenon encompassing multiple vendors. All have potential to assist in furthering client cloud strategies, but buyers must choose carefully. This report guides infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals' managed cloud choices.
