Gartner has issued this report looking at Cloud Management Platforms that enable organizations to manage public, private and hybrid cloud services and resources. The report looks at offerings from the Big Four (BMC, CA, HP, IBM), as well as 10 others categorized as “emerging vendors,” including Convirture.
The report gives credit to those in the category of emerging vendors for their innovative approaches that typically are easy to implement. We certainly like to think of ourselves that way and have intentionally designed ConVirt to be very intuitive from installation through day-to-day use. We even get credit for being differentiated from the other emerging vendors.
It is well worth reading and includes recommendations to avoid technology silos and pay careful attention to support for different cloud technologies– all good stuff. There is a section, too, about Convirture and our ConVirt software for anyone who has access to Gartner research reports. It’s 27 pages chock full of information and definitely tops on our reading list. If you share our interest in cloud management, you’ll definitely want to take a look.
