TORONTO, March 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – SoftwareReviews, a leading source for insights on the software provider landscape, has published its 2023 Data Quadrant Report on the top cloud infrastructure solutions. The comprehensive report is ready for download from the firm’s website, which is updated in real time to reflect new reviews and ratings. Three providers have been identified as Gold Medalists.
Cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms offer a wide array of “hosting” features in varying degrees and can be thought of as “data centers in the cloud.” However, unlike traditional data center infrastructure, Cloud IaaS allows for compute, storage, and networking resource consumption via a utility cost model that enables resources to be scaled up or down as required to balance performance against cost effectiveness.
“At this point, many organizations have achieved a reasonable level of maturity for adopting and operating cloud services and understand that the cloud isn’t a magic answer to every problem,” says Nabeel Sherif, Principal Advisory Director at Info-Tech Research Group and SoftwareReviews. “The focus is now on being ‘cloud smart’; that is, making sure you have the right visibility and tooling to understand and keep control of a more diverse IT footprint and costs while still realizing the speed and agility that brought companies to the cloud in the first place.”
The top cloud infrastructure software providers of the year have been identified by SoftwareReviews based on verified survey data collected from 837 end users. These providers have received high scores on SoftwareReviews’ Data Quadrant.
Providers are ranked by a composite satisfaction score, called a Composite Score (CS). The CS is the average of four different areas of evaluation: Net Emotional Footprint, Vendor Capabilities, Product Features, and Likeliness to Recommend.
The 2023 Cloud Infrastructure Software Gold Medalists are as follows:
- Google Cloud, 8.8 CS, ranked high for analytics and reporting.
- Amazon EC2, 8.7 CS, ranked high for cloud integrations.
- Microsoft Azure, 8.7 CS, ranked high for its quality of features.
