Internap Positioned in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting, North America

Hybrid IT infrastructure provider delivers platform for high-performance workloads

ATLANTA – August 3, 2015 – Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Niche” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting, North America.”i

Gartner defines Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting as a market that “deals in standardized, productized hosting offerings that combine a cloud-enabled system infrastructure (CESI) platform – comprising compute, network and storage hardware owned and operated by a service provider – with cloud management platform software to facilitate self-service and rapid provisioning with managed services.” The report evaluated 19 providers for their completeness of vision and ability to execute, based on criteria such as market understanding, innovation, product/service offering and customer experience.

“Organizations that seek to compete with a technology-based differentiation are increasingly relying on managed services delivered over high-performance bare-metal and public cloud platforms as the proven way to rapidly scale their applications and business,” said Satish Hemachandran, senior vice president and general manager, cloud and hosting, at Internap. “We believe our recognition as a niche player in the Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting validates our unique ability to provide a full range of standards-based, hybrid infrastructure services that can address our customers’ performance and compliance needs.”

Internap delivers a portfolio of public, bare-metal and private cloud services that help technology-centric businesses realize optimal application performance and meet diverse workload requirements. An early leader and innovator in bare-metal cloud, Internap’s automated, bare-metal server platform combines high throughput and CPU power with on-demand scalability to meet the specific needs of big data and cloud-native applications. Customers gain maximum flexibility for their scale-out workloads with the ability to rapidly provision Internap’s AgileCLOUD service, one of the industry’s largest OpenStack-based public cloud deployments. Internap’s private cloud offers additional levels of customization and control for mission-critical, enterprise workloads. Internap provides standard 24×7 monitoring, 100% uptime SLA and complete management capabilities for its cloud-enabled managed hosting services.
