About the report
“Scoring for this Critical Capabilities report was derived from recent independent Gartner research on the cloud IaaS market. Each vendor responded in detail to an extensive primary-research questionnaire covering the business and the technical features of their cloud IaaS offerings. Gartner analysts tested services, reviewed service documentation, corresponded with the vendors on the details of certain offerings and conducted reference checks with end users. Gartner also conducted thousands of client inquiries with prospective and current customers of public cloud IaaS during 2016 and 2017, and it currently conducts more than 1,000 such inquiries each quarter.”
