According to Gartner, "Public cloud IaaS continues to expand beyond basic infrastructure, with vendors distinguishing themselves based on the depth and breadth of their capabilities. I&O leaders should make both strategic and tactical provider selections based on their specific use cases."
Included in the Critical Capabilities for Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service:
According to Gartner, "Cloud IaaS is a standardized, highly automated offering in which compute resources, complemented by storage and networking capabilities, are owned by a service provider and offered to the customer on demand. The resources are scalable and elastic in near real time and are metered by use. Self-service interfaces are exposed directly to the customer, including a web-based UI and an API. In public cloud IaaS, the resources are multitenant and hosted in the service provider’s data centers."
