Network operator Interoute has been named a “Leader” in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Hybrid Cloud Hosting, Europe, for the fourth consecutive year. The annual report provides businesses with an impartial evaluation of vendors’ strengths and capabilities.

The citation stated, “Interoute continues to be a leader in the field for managed infrastructure platforms with a strong focus on automation, self service and application portability. Interoute’s unique Cloud Fabric simplifies the integration of public & private cloud, colocation and traditional hosting with its software-defined platform.”

Interoute offers its customers 13 cloud locations across Europe, in addition to resilient locations in Asia and the US. These allow applications to be distributed across major user locations, minimising latency and supporting data sovereignty requirements. Interoute has also integrated network capabilities into its VDC hosting platform and promotes free data-transfers between regions.

“Our combination of a robust, secure and high performance global cloud infrastructure means both digitally native and established enterprises, can improve performance and maintain compliance. The ability to integrate legacy, third party and digital environments on our platform also means they can build on their past while driving their digital transformation initiatives,” said Matthew Finnie, CTO at Interoute.

The report led by analyst Tiny Haynes, said: “Leaders have proved their technical competence and ability to deliver services to a wide range of customers. They address multiple use cases with stand-alone or integrated solutions. They also have a presence in multiple European locations to offer solutions around data sovereignty requirements.”
