Gartner names Microsoft Azure a leader in its IaaS Magic Quadrant for a third year in a row
Ozyucel: "The cloud remains a powerful tool for business and public-sector innovation and we are always focused on bringing the very best technologies to bear, so that our customers can get creative without having to consider the unwieldy logistics of growing their network or upgrading hardware and software."

Market intelligence firm Gartner has identified Microsoft Azure as a leader in the analyst firm’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). This marks the third year in a row that the company’s platform was recognised in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant analysis series.

                                       

Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform allows users to create virtual networks and supports multitenant storage and object storage, as well as robust content delivery network for the company and its vendor’s solutions.

 

Necip Ozyucel, cloud and enterprise business solutions lead, Microsoft Gulf, said: “We are, of course, thrilled and honoured that Microsoft Azure named a Gartner Magic Quadrant leader for the third year in a row.

 

“The cloud remains a powerful tool for business and public-sector innovation and we are always focused on bringing the very best technologies to bear, so that our customers can get creative without having to consider the unwieldy logistics of growing their network or upgrading hardware and software. Microsoft Azure is open, flexible and enterprise platform that we believe strong enabler for businesses growth and competitiveness”

 

Gartner’s analysts also cited Microsoft’s “deep investments” in engineering and “innovative roadmap” as crucial factors in the company’s current IaaS market standing.
