SingleHop Positioned in Gartner 2015 Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting, North America

In-Depth Evaluation From Leading IT Research and Analyst Firm Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute.

CHICAGO – August 3, 2015 – SingleHop, a leading provider of on-demand infrastructure and managed hosting, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting, North America.(1) SingleHop is one of 19 service  providers to be positioned in the report based on a stringent set of requirements, including completeness of vision and ability to execute.


“Our placement in the quadrant is a milestone that we believe is validation of SingleHop’s product innovation across our cloud hosting portfolio, ” said Zak Boca, CEO and co-founder of SingleHop. “Our unique approach to cloud-enabled managed hosting leverages both a high-degree of automation and a wealth of expert technologists empowering us to deliver more efficient, agile solutions to customers at an accelerated pace, with less human error and fewer unwanted consequences than our competitors could ever muster.”


SingleHop was founded on the principle that there was a better, more efficient and cost-effective way to deliver IT infrastructure and managed services. From its very inception, SingleHop has pioneered the use of automation for deploying and managing IT infrastructure, allowing  execution of tasks that have traditionally required intense manual intervention. “Having invested heavily in bringing the benefits of automation beyond infrastructure to managed services, SingleHop has developed a cache of tools to enable fast, seamless deployment of new services for customers,” continued Boca. “We view inclusion in the Gartner Magic Quadrant as recognition of these strengths by some of the most influential thinkers in the industry.”


In fact, it is the speed and precision generated by automation that enable SingleHop to offer one of the most rigorous SLAs in the industry. The company’s proactive self-monitoring SLA guarantees everything from ticket response time, deployment time for servers, and network uptime. The platform delivers an unprecedented level of transparency and control to customers for managing their workloads in the cloud. Learn more about SingleHop’s SLA here:


This evaluation by Gartner Inc. builds on SingleHop’s growing momentum. Earlier this year, the company announced two acquisitions driven by a deliberate strategy to expand its infrastructure, hosting and private cloud solutions to new market segments and geographic regions. Its acquisition of Microsoft expert and infrastructure provider Server Intellect extended SingleHop’s private cloud platform to address the Microsoft Windows ecosystem. The acquisition of infrastructure solutions provider Datagram brought a new portfolio of colocation solutions and data centers in New York and Connecticut.
