At AWS, we strive to provide you a technology platform that allows for agile development, rapid deployment, and unlimited scale, so that you can free up your resources to focus on innovation for your customers. It’s greatly rewarding to see our efforts recognized not just by our customers, but also by leading analysts.
This year, Gartner announced a new Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Services (CIPS). This is an evolution of their Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for which AWS has been named as a Leader for nine consecutive years.
Customers are using the cloud in broad ways, beyond foundational compute, networking and storage services. We believe for this reason, Gartner is expanding the scope to include additional platform as a service (PaaS) capabilities, and is extending coverage for areas such as managed database services, serverless computing, and developer tools.
Today, I am happy to share that AWS has been named as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Services, and placed highest in Ability to Execute and furthest in Completeness of Vision.
