GoGrid Captures “Gold” (Champion) Second Year in a Row in Info-Tech Vendor Cloud IaaS Landscape Report

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012 by

Team GoGrid, for a second consecutive year, stands on the top of the podium after again being recognized as a “Champion” by Info-Tech Research Group. In the recently released Info-Tech report, “Vendor Landscape: Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service” —full version available here for download—GoGrid was listed among an elite set of cloud infrastructure providers that also includes Amazon, AT&T, HP, iland, Rackspace, and Terremark.

Over several months, the analysts and researchers at Info-Tech evaluated numerous cloud infrastructure providers via surveys, pricing scenarios, reference clients, briefings, and product demos, and then scored each vendor in eight categories: Features, Usability, Affordability, Architecture, Viability, Strategy, Reach, and Channel. The first four categories were grouped as “Product Evaluation Criteria” and the second set of four as “Vendor Evaluation Criteria.” Each category was weighted slightly differently, as you can see below:

After calculating scores based on the above 8 categories, each provider’s evaluated solution was then plotted on a 2×2 matrix broken into 4 “Zones” (as outlined in the “Methodology” section of the report):

  1. Champions: Both the product and the vendor receive scores that are above the average score for the evaluated group.
  2. Innovators: The product receives a score that is above the average score for the evaluated group, but the vendor receives a score that is below the average score for the evaluated group.
  3. Market Pillars: The product receives a score that is below the average score for the evaluated group, but the vendor receives a score that is above the average score for the evaluated group.
  4. Emerging Players: Both the product and the vendor receive scores that are below the average score for the evaluated group.

“We are the Champions” – GoGrid Spotlighted in Info-Tech Research Group’s Cloud IaaS Report

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011 by

At GoGrid, we pride ourselves on being the world’s largest pure-play Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider. We work tirelessly to innovate the top cloud infrastructure technology available, provide the best support solutions and offer the most comprehensive Service Level Agreement (SLA) in the industry. And when an independent research group recognizes our hard work, it’s extremely validating and a little hard not to share. ;-)

This past July, Info-Tech Research Group released an extensive report entitled “Vendor Landscape: Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)”. This report is designed to help companies understand the offerings of cloud infrastructure providers so they can select a partner with solutions that best meet their needs. Each cloud IaaS vendor was scored based on their product offering and company strengths. GoGrid was one of 3 companies placed in the highest quadrant, “Champion”, and had the highest “Value Index” of every company profiled.

GoGrid topped the charts because our services had the highest value and, as Info-Tech put it, was the biggest “bang for the buck” (e.g. features, usability, stability, etc.).

The research and findings of the Info-Tech Research Group are available for download. The report highlights the purpose and methodology behind Info-Tech’s research, complete industry results and detailed analysis of GoGrid as a cloud infrastructure provider.
