Gartner names Microsoft Azure as a leader in cloud computing infrastructure

Gartner has named Microsoft Azure as a leader in its Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service for the third year in a row based on completeness of Microsoft’s vision and ability to execute.

“We are honored by this continued recognition as we are relentless about our commitment and rapid pace of innovation for infrastructure services,” writes Nicole Herskowitz, Cloud Platform director of product marketing.

While Azure is a world-class cloud platform for Windows, it’s also recognized for industry-leading support for Linux and other open source technologies, Herskowitz says. “Today, nearly one in three VMs deployed on Azure are Linux. Strong momentum for Linux and open source is driven by customers using Azure for business applications and modern application architectures, including containers and big data solutions.”
