Nordcloud positioned in Gartner´s Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Professional and Managed Services, Worldwide

This Is The Third Year In A Row Nordcloud Has Been Included In This Report

2019 Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure, Professional and Managed Services, Worldwide report evaluated 19 different vendors.

Nordcloud achieves highest placement for its ability to execute in the Niche Players’ quadrant.

According to Gartner, “this Magic Quadrant is focused on MSPs that have deep technical expertise with hyperscale providers, effective cloud management platforms (CMPs), and managed services that leverage automation, where possible. The MSPs must also possess the ability to deliver cloud-optimized solutions, regardless of whether a customer is deploying new cloud-native applications or migrating legacy workloads from an existing traditional data center. This depth of expertise and technical integration, including exploiting the API-enabled automation of hyperscale providers, distinguishes these MSPs from data center outsourcing (DCO) providers. Traditional DCO providers usually offer solutions that largely treat hyperscale providers as if they were simply virtualization platforms.”

According to Gartner, “by 2024, more than 50% of cloud service deals will include both application development services and cloud infrastructure professional and managed services, up from 10% in 2019.”

“We believe Nordcloud has landed in the Magic Quadrant for a third year in a row because we combine cloud infrastructure and cloud application development in order to provide full-service cloud transformations to our customers. This is expected to be a key feature in the majority of deals within the next five years” says Jan Kritz, CEO, Nordcloud.

“Our hyperscale focused MSP strategy and European market focus ensures our customers get local access to the capabilities to drive success on their digital transformation while reducing IT costs.”

Nordcloud Recognized Also By Financial Times

The Magic Quadrant recognition is the latest acknowledgement Nordcloud has received. Previously, The Financial Times positioned Nordcloud in their 1000 fastest growing companies in Europe (FT1000) listing in March 2019.

Nordcloud is a rare company worldwide to have audited partner certifications with all three leading hyperscalers: Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. Nordcloud operates in 10 European countries and employs over 420 cloud experts.

The Gartner DBMS Magic Quadrant

CATEGORIES

BlogInsights

The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a report published by Gartner, a US-based research and advisory firm, the aim being to provide an unbiased analysis into a market and its direction, maturity and participants. These analyses are focused on the technology industry and are updated every 1-2 years in order to reflect the current landscape. The Magic Quadrant is aimed at CIOs, CTOs, infrastructure managers, database and application architects, database administrators and IT purchasing managers across organisations of all sizes.

On 12th October 2015 Gartner published an updated Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems (DBMS). The DBMS world – which has been stagnant for years with the big players having the lion’s share of the market – is now enjoying a dynamic resurgence, in part due to the innovations being made in Cloud computing that is seeing these established leaders being seriously challenged for the first time by new entrants into the market. For the purposes of this Magic Quadrant, Gartner has defined a DBMS as, “a complete system used to define, create, manage, update and query a database”. Relational (RDBMS) and non-relational (NoSQL) databases are included and there is no stipulation that the DBMS must be a closed-source product. Additionally, all vendor’s products are treated as a set, in the case of Oracle they are included once in the Magic Quadrant and the rating is based on their entire product set – Oracle Database, Oracle TimesTen, Oracle Berkeley DB, Oracle NoSQL Database and MySQL.

What is most interesting about the October 2015 Magic Quadrant is the inclusion of Amazon Web Services (AWS) straight into the Leaders quadrant. The fact that AWS was not included in the 2013 DBMS Magic Quadrant makes this all the more impressive. Gartner rates vendors upon two criteria: completeness of vision and ability to execute. Leaders are said to score highly on both criteria. From this, we can confidently state that for running DBMS solutions, AWS is now recognised as a key player alongside such well-established industry giants as Oracle, Microsoft and IBM. Drilling deeper into the report, Gartner has assessed AWS on their Relational Database Service (RDS) and Amazon DynamoDB offerings. RDS is currently available for Amazon Aurora, MariaDB, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle and PostgreSQL databases. It should be noted that running a traditional, non-RDS database installation on an EC2 instance is not part of the assessment. The key AWS strengths identified are:

  • Diverse product capabilities: AWS provides a wide range of product capabilities, spanning relational and NoSQL technologies. It continues to release new products to meet or exceed the market’s demands.
  • Geographic availability: Based on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), AWS supports 30 availability zones spanning 19 countries and five continents. While all services are not available in all zones, AWS’s cloud infrastructure is one of the largest, most diverse and stable.
  • Ease of doing business: AWS scored high in the survey of reference customers for ease of doing business. Three-quarters of them plan to purchase additional services from AWS within the next 12 months.

Here at Nordcloud we are passionate about all things Cloud and the associated benefits that customers can gain from a well designed, highly available, secure, scalable infrastructure that can be provisioned and deployed quickly and easily. Our team of Cloud Architects includes database technologists who have worked extensively for years across all major DBMS platforms in a diverse range of industries such as finance, media, telecoms and education. We understand that data is the most critical part of any business and that any loss or breach can cause severe reputational damage and financial impact. We have the knowledge, skills and experience to migrate your data securely and successfully to the Cloud, and our work delivering this for customers over a range of successful projects is a testament to this. We are also able to assist you in migrating your data from older database platforms, many which have severely prohibitive licensing arrangements, to newer pay as you go RDS technologies such as AWS Aurora.

If you are interested in migrating your data to the Cloud, or simply understanding more about how your DBMS can run in AWS then please let us know, we would love to hear from you.
