Gartner’s AWS research focuses largely upon Amazon Redshift, the cloud-based storage service and its associated offerings. Gartner praised AWS for its “best-fit approach” which provides different services for different uses cases and its low-cost, pay as you go pricing. Gartner listed the “strengths” of AWS and then pointed out its “weaknesses.” These include no on-premises offerings as well as a changing Redshift architecture and integration complexity. Gartner stated that the cloud has become a Tier 1 platform to deploy DMSAs. “Pure-play cloud vendor AWS is back in the Leaders quadrant for the second year.

Qubole, Treasure Data, and Alibaba Cloud are all new entrants to Magic Quadrant. Each of these players offer pure-play cloud offerings.
