January 7, 2011 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Datapipe
, a leading provider of managed services and infrastructure for IT and cloud computing, today announced it has been positioned as a Challenger in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and Web Hosting. The Magic Quadrant represents Gartner's evaluation of 20 service providers based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.
"We believe Gartner's analysis points to our unique value as single provider solution with unusually strong capabilities for cloud, traditional and hybrid services," said Robb Allen, CEO of Datapipe.
According to the Gartner report, "The market for traditional Web hosting services, especially for Internet and intranet Web content and applications, continues to grow. However, during the past two years, the introduction of cloud computing offerings has radically accelerated innovation in the hosting market." In 2010, Datapipe significantly expanded its portfolio of cloud computing services with Datapipe Managed Cloud, a complete managed services offering designed for Amazon Web Services (AWS) which includes the ability to hybridize Amazon solutions with Datapipe solutions. "We offer solutions that provide improved automation and governance while delivering enterprise performance and reliability," said Ed Laczynski, vice-president of cloud strategy and architecture at Datapipe.
Datapipe offers a single provider solution for managing and securing mission-critical IT services, including cloud computing, hosted servers and storage, colocation and data centers. Datapipe delivers those services from the world's most influential technical and financial markets including New York metro, Silicon Valley, London, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
