AWS leads Public Cloud Storage Services
AWS has been named ‘Leader’ in the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Storage Services.
AWS leads Microsoft and Google as the only three vendors in the Leader quadrant.
The Public Cloud Storage Services market is growing rapidly, with 60% of global companies expected to store customer-sensitive data in the public cloud by the end of 2016, up from less than 20% in 2014.

Public cloud storage is infrastructure as a service (IaaS), providing object storage services through a REST API using Internet protocols. It is stand-alone, with no additional managed services required; vendors supply their core storage services off-premises and include on-demand, elastic storage capabilities in a self-service model. Stored data exists in a multitenant environment, accessible through the Internet or dedicated network connectivity.
Gartner’s 2015 Public Cloud Storage Services Report evaluates the capabilities of service providers across their broad suite of storage services — object, block, file and archiving tiers.
Gartner recognised AWS as an innovative and agile cloud storage provider with a steady cadence of new products and functionalities, which helps it sustain market leadership.
AWS’s storage portfolio continues to evolve to meet growing customer needs across a wide set of use cases. Hundreds of customers operate at petabyte (PB) scale with a few customers even exceeding 100 PBs: testament to its scale and customers’ trust in its operational prowess.
AWS has built an impressive marketplace ecosystem of SaaS partners that allows customers to more easily manage, analyze and protect the data that sits in the underlying storage tiers.
