Interoute recognised as leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting, Europe

London, 17 July - Interoute, owner operator of Europe's largest cloud services platform, today announced it has been positioned as a "Leader" in Gartner's Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting Magic Quadrant, Europe, July 9, 2014.

Interoute's CTO Matthew Finnie believes Interoute has received this recognition due to the unique capabilities it can offer customers thanks to the integration of Interoute's pan European fibre optic network with its compute platform across its global data centres. Network ownership, Software Defined Networking (SDN) capability and scale have enabled Interoute to offer customers the ability to move workloads and data between international data centres for free through Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC). Interoute's networked cloud platform also gives customers the ability to control exactly where data and applications are hosted, which is key for organisations that require strict compliance with data sovereignty regulations.

Matthew Finnie, Interoute CTO, commented: "We believe our recognition as a Leader in the Gartner Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting Magic Quadrant for Europe has stemmed from the network advantage we have built into our global cloud platform. We are providing customers with predictable computing performance on a vast scale and the confidence to securely host location sensitive data and applications in multiple global locations that suit their business requirements."

The Gartner report co-authored by analysts Tiny Haynes, Gianluca Tramacere, Lydia Leong, Gregor Petri, Douglas Toombs and Bob Gill says, "Leaders have proved they have staying power in this market, can frequently innovate on their existing products and can be relied on for enterprise-class needs. They have proved their technical competence and ability to deliver services to a wide range of customers."

This is the latest in a number of reports indicating Interoute's cloud hosting capability. In March 2014 Interoute received the highest rating, alongside Amazon, in the Gigaom Sector RoadMap: European cloud infrastructure market report[1]. The Sector RoadMap report, explores a number of the factors that must be borne in mind when selecting a cloud infrastructure provider in Europe.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
