Scalr Named a Leader in Hybrid Cloud Management by Independent Research Firm

San Francisco, CA – June 6, 2018 Scalr, a global pioneer in complex hybrid cloud management, announced it is named a Leader in “The Forrester WaveTM: Hybrid Cloud Management, Q2 2018. Scalr was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in this Forrester Wave evaluation. The company received the top score in the automation and orchestration criterion, the second-highest score in the cloud service administration and governance criterion, and among the highest scores in the integrations and APIs, execution roadmap, and market approach criteria.

“Our unique ability to help businesses both control and unleash the power of multi-cloud environments is making Scalr the CMP of choice for dynamic, large-scale operations,” said Sebastian Stadil, CEO and Founder of Scalr. “We believe that Forrester has recognized the strong value Scalr provides enterprises who want to leverage the cloud’s transformative capabilities.”

According to the Forrester Wave report, “Scalr Enterprise delivers a clean solution purpose-built for actionable optimization, powered with analytics and automation… Scalr allows enterprises to provision new resources through Scalr’s GUI or directly through a native cloud platform. Scalr can deny a request in a native platform, based on set policies established in its management portal, whereas other solutions can only alert or send remediation recommendations. Scalr is also a composable solution, providing native ability to complete tasks or use third-party templates and tools through its Cloud Service Gateway.”

According to Scalr,  these capabilities are in line with key market needs noted in the Forrester Wave report:

  • I&O Pros Are Looking For Cost Optimization, Governance Policies, And Ease Of UseI&O professionals seek simple tools that help optimize costs and help govern cloud usage across various platforms. Market growth stems from increasing multi-cloud usage, complexity, and rates of change. I&O pros increasingly trust hybrid cloud management solutions to educate them on platform best practices and act as fully automated, optimization solutions.
  • Optimization, Automated Operations, And Delivering Knowledge Are Key Differentiators
    Role-based access, integration with multiple directories, and support of major public cloud platforms are commodities in this market. Vendors that can provide deep analytics and integration into leading continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) tools and offer in-portal best practice updates position themselves to successfully support the future of hybrid cloud managers.
