April 2018 Brand Leader Survey 4 Infrastructure-as-a-Service Brand Leader Survey Methodology • Brand Leader reports are designed to measure the pulse of brand leadership in specific product categories using results from independent, non-sponsored surveys with at least 200 respondents. • The IaaS Brand Leader Survey was conducted in April, 2018. – Respondents were solicited from over 1,000,000 members of 100+ online IT groups, and from the IT Brand Pulse database of 150,000 IT professionals. – Two hundred and two IT Pros responded to this survey. – Responses were collected using an online survey engine. • In each part, respondents were provided with a product category description, randomly-listed vendor choices (plus an “Other” answer choice to add a vendor, if applicable), and were asked six questions: 1. Who do you perceive as the <product category> market leader? 2. Who do you perceive as the <product category> price leader? 3. Who do you perceive as the <product category> performance leader? 4. Who do you perceive as the <product category> reliability leader? 5. Who do you perceive as the <product category> service & support leader? 6.

  10. 10. April 2018 Brand Leader Survey Brand Leader Definitions 10
  11. 11. April 2018 Brand Leader Survey 11 Product Category Definitions • Auto Scaling-as-a-Service: Lets you automatically change the number of instances providing a particular compute workload. You set defined metric and thresholds that determine if the platform adds or removes instances. • Backup & Restore-as-a-Service: Backup and archival solutions allow files and folders to be backed up and recovered from the cloud, and provide off-site protection against data loss. There are two components of backup—the software service that orchestrates backup/retrieval and the underlying backup storage infrastructure. • Batch Computing-as-a-Service: Run large-scale parallel and high-performance computing applications efficiently in the cloud. • Block Storage-as-a-Service: Data stored in volumes and blocks, where files are split into evenly sized blocks. Each block has its own address, but unlike objects they do not have metadata. • Bulk Data Transfer-as-a-Service: A data transport solution that uses secure disks and appliances to transfer large amounts of data. Also offers data protection during transit. • Cold Storage-as-a-Service: Cold storage is a lower cost tier for storing data that is infrequently accessed and long-lived. • Containers-as-a-Service: Quickly deploy a production ready Kubernetes, DC/OS, or Docker Swarm cluster. • Dedicated Servers-as-a-Service: Instances that run on hardware that's dedicated to a single customer. • Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service: Automates protection and replication of virtual machines. Offers health monitoring, recovery plans, and recovery plan testing. • File Storage-as-a-Service: Provides a simple interface to create and configure file systems quickly, and share common files. It’s shared file storage without the need for a supporting virtual machine, and can be used with traditional protocols that access files over a network. • Object Storage-as-a-Service: Object storage service, for use cases including cloud applications, content distribution, backup, archiving, disaster recovery, and big data analytics. • Serverless-as-a-Service: Integrate systems and run back end processes in response to events or schedules without provisioning or managing servers. • SSD-as-a-Service: High performance SSD storage. • Virtual Servers-as-a-Service: Virtual servers allow users to deploy, manage, and maintain OS and server software. Instance types provide combinations of CPU/RAM. Users pay for what they use with the flexibility to change sizes. 11
