Microsoft Azure IaaS from a visionary to a leader in less than a year on Gartner.
Microsoft has announced the general availability of Azure Infrastructure Services a little over a year ago. And from that time, features and enhancements have been pouring over that cloud offering and at a very quick rate. Addressing customer and partner feedback with features that Azure users have been asking for. Back then, specifically in August 2013, Microsoft was named a visionary in the Infrastructure as a Service front in the Gartner Report.
Moving forward, in less than a year, all that hard work and efforts have paid off and this week Gartner has named Microsoft as a Leader in its 2014 Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Magic Quadrant report.
This comes after a short after Gartner recognized Microsoft as a Leader in the Enterprise Application Platform as a Service (aPaaS) market in its 2014 Enterprise aPaaS Magic Quadrant.
This new announcement makes Microsoft the only public cloud vendor to be named a Leader for both PaaS and IaaS.
I am personal fan of Azure, so I thought I would share the good news.

And remember cloud is the future.
