Gartner announces latest Magic Quadrant for European Managed Hosting
Managed services provider Claranet has been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant in Gartner’s latest European Magic Quadrant for European Managed Hosting, published June 19, 2013 by Tiny Haynes et al.
Gartner stated that vendors in the Leaders Quadrant have proved they have staying power in this market, can frequently innovate on their existing products and can be relied on for enterprise-class needs. They have proved their technical competence and ability to deliver services to a wide range of customers. They address multiple use cases with stand-alone or integrated solutions.
Charles Nasser, CEO of Claranet, states that:
Claranet has a strong history of networking and hosting provision, which means that customers have a single line of accountability and that we have a broad understanding across our customers’ IT spectrum.
Secondly, as one of the few European-headquartered providers with a pan-European presence, Claranet is in a strong position as the market continues to mature. Our acquisitions of Star in the UK and Typhon in France have consolidated our position in Europe while maintaining our financial and corporate stability – both enormously important trust factors when storing data with a provider.”
The Gartner Magic Quadrant assessment offers snapshots of markets and their participants. It enables users to map vendor strengths against their current and future needs. Gartner evaluated Claranet’s hosting portfolio on both its completeness of vision and its ability to execute using 15 weighted criteria.
Our hosting and network solutions offer significant operational cost-savings, enhanced flexibility and scalability, and immediate return on investment (ROI) We believe it is this integrated portfolio, matched with our ability to operate across multiple borders, that has enabled us to enter this Magic Quadrant in the Leaders category at our first attempt. Claranet believes this to be a strong affirmation of our hosting solutions.”
