Dimension Data positioned in the Challengers Quadrant of Gartner’s 2013 Magic Quadrant for Managed Hosting, North America

We’re proud to have been positioned by Gartner in the Challengers quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Managed Hosting, North America, 2013 report which, this year, examined 15 vendors across North America based on their ‘ability to execute’ and ‘completeness of vision’.

An important recognition
Dimension Data believes the Managed Hosting Magic Quadrant for North America and its placement in this report reflect the state of this market as well as the organisation’s traction. Our excellent set of services, solid track record, strong roadmap for the future and people who can make great things happen is a winning combination for our clients. We believe this placement is an achievement which illustrates the following:

  • Our global footprint: we’ve rolled out eight public Managed Cloud Platforms (MCPs): one each in the Netherlands, South Africa, Australia, Hong Kong and two in the US, and we have two service provider MCPs located in India and Indonesia. Our Tokyo MCP is expected to come online in the coming months. This provides us with the ability to optimally manage workloads across multiple geographies.
  • Our differentiated cloud technology and ability to offer managed hosting on dedicated servers as well as public and private cloud: we’ve integrated our managed hosting platform with our cloud platform to allow ‘bursting’ of workloads into the public cloud. Additionally, clients are able to deploy their own on-premise private instance of our managed cloud platform.
  • We offer some of the highest service level agreements (SLAs) of any provider: including high SLAs for selected enterprise applications – testimony to our client-centric approach.
