Linode is one of the most trusted providers of cloud hosting services, according to a study by independent research company, Gartner. The company was ranked fifth in the report, which looked at providers of public, private, and hybrid clouds.
“The Linode public cloud platform delivers an easy-to-use, cost-effective platform that enables customers to quickly create and launch applications on the cloud,” said Rajiv Sinha, vice president and general manager, Platforms and Solutions at Linode. “We are pleased to be recognized as one of the leading providers of cloud hosting services and to contribute to the growth of the public cloud market.”
Gartner’s study found that cloud computing is becoming an essential component of enterprise IT deployments. Public cloud services are especially important because they allow organizations to quickly create and deploy applications.
The report noted that public clouds are becoming more reliable and available, and that their pricing models are becoming more flexible.
“As the cloud computing market matures, we are seeing more providers entering the market and offering more flexible pricing models,” said Ranjit Chakravarty, research vice president at Gartner. “The growth of the public cloud market is being driven by the need for organizations to take advantage of the agility and elasticity of cloud services to address new business opportunities.”
While Linode is one of the most trusted providers of cloud hosting services, it is not the only provider of cloud services. Other providers of cloud services include Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.
