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?

Examples in Gartner’s report include:

“Claranet has reinvented itself in the last few years, adding professional services to its managed services and mixing hybrid cloud and security services, with strong capability in migrating and operating critical applications and infrastructure 24/7. Claranet is following the increasing appetite in Europe for public cloud on Azure. This is also driving it into larger deals and a hybrid demand (private and public).”

“References praise Claranet for its technical knowledge and relationship with cloud providers, its agility and ability to scale, and its pragmatism and quality of delivery. They also appreciate Claranet’s focus on quality of services from remote capabilities, its operational and tools expertise, and its flexible contract structure and account management.”

We fully appreciate what it takes to be one of only five companies in the world that has the highest audited MSP certifications from AWS, Google and Microsoft. This highlights the depth and breadth of our expertise that is instrumental in driving the growth of our hybrid cloud practice and getting superior results for our customers. Our customers have praised us for our technical knowledge, flexibility, pragmatism, and the relationships we have with cloud providers, all of which are essential in delivering a high standard of service.”
