Research and Markets: EMA Radar for Private Cloud Platforms: Q1 2013 Report

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "EMA Radar for Private Cloud Platforms: Q1 2013" report to their offering.

This ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES (EMA) Radar Report analyses the marketplace for private cloud technologies from a customer perspective. Therefore, the only vendors included in this report are the ones with a sizable number of production deployments. In the end, EMA reviewed and empirically compared the 13 leading private cloud vendors in terms of "Solution Impact" - features, architecture, and integration - and "Resource Efficiency" - time, effort, and cost. In order to ensure an "apples to apples" comparison, there are two Radar charts, one for solutions that focus on lightweight IaaS-centric private clouds (Abiquo, Citrix, Egenera, Embotics, Morphlabs, and Nimbula) and another for much more comprehensive, application-aware private cloud platforms (ASG, BMC, CA Technologies, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Microsoft, and VMware).
