New cloud category: “Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting”

To some extent Gartner has recognized that managed cloud is in its infancy and has named Rackspace in its 2014 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), a report that focuses on multi-tenant cloud infrastructure providers. At Rackspace, we’re looking forward to seeing the upcoming Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting, North America, which will focus more on the service layer on top of the infrastructure, rather than the infrastructure itself. That’s where our managed cloud focus squarely fits.

New cloud category: “Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting”

Dell is fond of greatly simplifying it’s strategy to a handful of phrases, or even just words. This is a nice slide from the Dell analyst summit going on covering the corporate strategy now: clearly, paying down the debt that financed going private, run things lean, grow existing businesses (and fix up GTM). While “come up with new stuff that people want to buy” isn’t there, in earlier Tom Sweet said that R&D spend had increased to 2.1% of revenue, up from 1.6% (before going private, I believe).
