Replicated Cool Vendor

Each year, Gartner recognizes innovative technology companies as Cool Vendors across various market segments. We are proud to announce that Replicated has been recognized as a November 2021 Gartner™ Cool Vendor in Cloud Computing.

Gartner’s Cool Vendor research is “designed to highlight interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services.” This Cool Vendors in Cloud Computing report (subscription required) includes key findings such as: 

  • Seventy-six percent of respondents to Gartner’s 2020 Cloud End-User Buying Behavior Survey that have adopted cloud infrastructure intend to operate in a multicloud environment. The primary reasons are to increase service availability, to leverage best-of-breed services across providers and to comply with compliance requirements across the globe.
  • Real-world multicloud implementations are mired with architectural complexity, unclear total cost of ownership (TCO) and uneven governance due to inadequate planning and lack of a deliberate strategy.
  • There is a new, emerging breed of startups with a cloud-first product mindset and multicloud product capabilities that are focused on easing multicloud adoption challenges.

This edition of the report summarizes, “As organizations pursue a multicloud strategy, ensuring effective governance, integration and cost optimization are becoming critical challenges. CIOs should assess these Cool Vendors that have built innovative multicloud products as they formulate their cloud adoption strategy.”

“We are thrilled to be named a Gartner Cool Vendor in Cloud Computing,” said Grant Miller, Co-Founder, and CEO of Replicated. “We started this company nearly seven years ago with the ambition to make folks rethink what on-prem software distribution and management could look like. Hopefully, with this designation, we’re a step closer to erasing the connotations of server racks, binaries, and bespoke operations and replacing them with ubiquitous Kubernetes-based, automated operations. In a word, maybe our efforts to modernize this distribution model have made on-prem software cool again.”
