Virtacore Positioned as Niche Player in Leading Analyst Firm Magic Quadrant for Public Infrastructure-as-a-Service

Virtacore Systems, Inc., an industry leader in hybrid cloud services, today announced their inclusion in the December 8, 2011 Gartner 'Magic Quadrant for Public Infrastructure as a Service,' written by Gartner analysts Lydia Leong and Ted Chamberlain.

"Virtacore is able to deliver secure and agile public cloud services utilizing the VMware vCloud architecture based on vCloud Director 1.5," stated Mathew Lodge, senior director, Cloud Services, VMware. "This architecture allows their cloud management portal to move workloads between all types of VMware-based clouds."

Virtacore is located in the Niche Players quadrant, which is defined by Gartner as, 'Niche Players are typically relatively new entrants to the market. They may be excellent providers for the use cases in which they specialize. Not all these providers have a well-established track record, and some of them have limited experience serving enterprise customers.' Virtacore believes this position supports its recent entry to the public cloud market and their vision to provide the SMB market with private and public cloud solutions, enabling them to build a custom hybrid cloud.

Hybrid clouds are any combination of different types of Infrastructure-as-a-Service clouds, maintained by both internal and external providers. They allow customers flexibility and freedom of choice when building a cloud infrastructure. Learn more at
