We are proud to be recognised in this latest Gartner Magic Quadrant alongside so many other global players, which we believe is a positive reflection of the work we have done to enhance our expertise in the migration of applications to both public and private cloud platforms, and the management of critical applications and infrastructure 24/7."

What is the Magic Quadrant?

This Magic Quadrant evaluates leading service providers' ability to deliver a complex set of data centre capabilities and services that are increasingly based on managed virtual
private cloud services plus hyperscale public cloud services.

Why is Claranet included?

Example in Gartner’s report include:

“Claranet's use of onshore staff to deliver services is a substantial differentiator to competitors. As a premier partner of AWS and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and a Microsoft Gold partner, it has created a dedicated cloud migration practice and has trained more than 1,200 staff members with technical cloud skills.”

“… customer references praise Claranet for its expertise, adaptability, innovation, loyalty and responsibility. They also appreciate Claranet's focus on negotiation flexibility, cloud migration and workload optimization, and value for money.”

Our status as holders of the highest accreditations in all of the ‘Big Three’ public cloud providers – AWS, Google and Microsoft – has also been instrumental in driving the growth of our dedicated cloud migration practice. In addition, we have continued to make investments in automation of cloud infrastructure, which we believe will help our customers reach new levels of IT performance and efficiency.”
