Berlin, Germany, 2014/01/15 - cloudControl, a leading PaaS provider, today announced it has been recognized by Gartner, Inc. in the inaugural edition of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform as a Service (aPaaS) - cloudControl.com.
The Magic Quadrant is a standardized assessment tool used by Gartner to evaluate leading vendors based on completeness of vision and ability to execute on a global basis.
According to Gartner’s assessment,“Enterprise IT users too are coming to the aPaaS market in increasing numbers.” “These initial engagements with SaaS or IaaS have opened the door to utilizing cloud resources more fully. aPaaS is engaged to customize and extend SaaS (and iPaaS to integrate it with other applications). It is also engaged by users that have become comfortable with the use of IaaS, and now wish to increase their productivity and to delegate more responsibility to the cloud services providers”.
“The aPaaS Magic Quadrant rates vendors on both their technological capabilities and their operational experience as cloud services providers,” says Philipp Strube, CEO of cloudControl. “We believe being recognized by Gartner as one of the leading players in this market will help potential white label partners see the benefits of working with cloudControl.”
cloudControl’s multi-language public PaaS is available as a fully managed white label solution to service providers. This allows IaaS providers to become full cloud stack providers offering IaaS and PaaS under their own brand. Key benefits of the revenue-share partnership are lower initial investment and faster time-to-market when compared to alternative models.
“In many conversations with infrastructure providers during the past year, the need to offer PaaS due to its ever-increasing importance has been a recurring topic,” says Strube. “I’m confident that cloudControl is uniquely positioned to help them do this.”
cloudControl (cloudcontrol.com) is Europe’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) pioneer, developing and running a leading multi-language PaaS since 2009. Designed for agility, efficiency and reliability, the cloudControl platform supercharges development of applications and business solutions by enabling rapid innovation cycles. cloudControl’s PaaS offering caters to developers, service providers, and enterprise clients with public and private cloud solutions.
