Culver City, California, August 27, 2009 - (mt) Media Temple Inc. (www.mediatemple.net), a privately held web hosting services company, announced today that Gartner, Inc., an IT research organization, has positioned Media Temple in their Magic Quadrant report along with global brands AT&T, IBM and Amazon for “Web Hosting and Hosted Cloud System Infrastructure Services (On Demand)”.
To appear in this Magic Quadrant, Media Temple was selected from a number of technology companies based on a mix of industry-specific criteria, including: on-demand hosting as a stand-alone service, 24/7 customer support, and a significant market presence (revenues of more than $20 million in sales).
According to Gartner, Web hosting is an evolving market that is being rapidly transformed by a shift to on-demand, pay-as-you-go products and services – often referred to as “the cloud.” As for Media Temple, however, this is a market shift they’ve predicted for some time. The company has provided components that are core to the cloud for over 10 years and is now uniquely positioned to service the growing demand of today’s hosting consumers.
When questioned about the report, Demian Sellfors, CEO of (mt) Media Temple, commented, “Cloud computing is nothing more than a new interpretation or method of accessing data center services. Given our background and track record with VPS, clustering, storage, and other high-scale technologies — (mt) remains well positioned to transform with the I.T. landscape.” Sellfors further indicated, “It’s an exciting time for our industry. We are pleased to be recognized as a Niche Player in Gartner’s newly re-formatted Magic Quadrant.”
