a leader in managed cloud services for the enterprise, today announced
it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. as a Visionary in the 2017
Magic Quadrant for Managed Hybrid Cloud Hosting, Asia/Pacific. This
report is the company’s most recent recognition; it was also recognized
as a Leader in the June 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Hybrid
Cloud Hosting, Europe.
“Datapipe has long set itself apart with its ability to navigate the
complexities of the Asia/Pacific market,” said Robb Allen, CEO and
Founder, Datapipe. “We believe that Datapipe’s inclusion in these Magic
Quadrant reports is a testament to our ability to provide expert
services for organizations of all sizes spread across the globe. We also
feel that our recognition in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed
Hybrid Cloud Hosting, Asia/Pacific for the fifth year in a row is a
testament to our status as a truly global organization.”*
Datapipe believes its recognition in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for Managed
Hybrid Cloud Hosting, Asia/Pacific, is a result of Datapipe’s deep
experience providing managed hybrid cloud hosting services for the
enterprise; with the company among the first to support AWS,
Azure, and Alibaba
Cloud with both infrastructure and managed services. Since opening
its Hong Kong office in 2005, Datapipe has leveraged its extensive
hybrid cloud hosting expertise to enable global organizations to expand
their footprints in the Asia/Pacific market, as well as Asia/Pacific
organizations venturing abroad.
Recently, BMJ, a global healthcare knowledge provider, tapped
Datapipe for its global expertise to launch its hybrid multi-cloud
environment and enter the Chinese market using Alibaba Cloud. BMJ began
working with Datapipe last year to move to a new, agile way of working
through fully virtualizing its infrastructure and automating its release
cycle using Datapipe’s private cloud environment. Through partnering
with Datapipe, BMJ has implemented a hybrid multi-cloud solution using
both AWS and Alibaba Cloud, and has transitioned from traditional print
media to becoming a premier global digital publisher and educator.
Sharon Cooper, BMJ’s Chief Digital Officer says, “We see the People’s
Republic of China as a key part of our growing international network.
Therefore, we needed the technical expertise to be able to expand our
services into China, and a partner to help us navigate the complex
frameworks required to build services there. Datapipe, with its
on-the-ground support in China and knowledge of the market has delivered
local public-cloud infrastructure utilizing Alibaba Cloud.”
