Oracle Named A Visionary In New Gartner IaaS Magic Quadrant

Today at Oracle Dyn, we are incredibly proud to promote the inclusion of Oracle in Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). To be included in the Visionary quadrant of a key piece of research only nine months after publicly announcing its IaaS offering is, in our minds, a huge win.

The piece calls out just a few of the things we are most proud of here: our people, our technology, and our roadmap. On our IaaS offering, the analysts say, “It is being built by a highly experienced engineering team recruited primarily from hyperscale cloud providers. It has well-designed hyperscale cloud architecture, and a thoughtful selection of current and future features.”

It isn’t just analysts who are excited about what we’re building. Customers, like Congizant, who have long yearned for a cloud without compromise are realizing that Oracle allows them the performance they hoped for in the cloud without giving up the control to which they’ve become accustomed. This is truly a cloud for the enterprise who to date as been weary of the solutions in the market.

It’s incredibly exciting to see the success of the work this team has put in over such a short timeline. In October, Oracle announced the public launch of our cloud IaaS offering. In November, Oracle announced the acquisition of Dyn. April 1 marked our first day as Oracle employees. And, now, we’ve been included in a Magic Quadrant. We said we were excited to join Oracle; this is why.

We believe that much of our vision for the cloud will come from best-of-breed edge services. We fought for years for Gartner to create a DNS-specific magic quadrant, so we’ll take some satisfaction in this win. The enterprise edge is the point where the enterprise has the most control over user access to services. The closer the enterprise can make the edge to the user, the more control and choices they have. An edge that covers all assets has ultimate control over security, availability and performance choices. We’re proud to be a critical piece of the future of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).

We’ve shown that we have the expertise and the vision to build a next-gen IaaS offering that enterprises can count on — now it’s time to continue executing and become a leader in the next Gartner Magic Quadrant for IaaS.
