We are very pleased to note that RankCloudz Online evaluation was used in a major report “WATERNOMICS : D.1.2. Inventory Technology, Standards and Policies” by the WATERNOMICS Consortium for the project “ICT for Water Resource Management” funded by the European Commission. The report presented a review of the state-of-the-art technologies relevant for “ICT for Water Resource Management” project, and an assessment of policies and standards that govern the implementation and use of available technologies by utilities and water users.
In Section 2.2.3 Cloud Infrastructure of the report “WATERNOMICS : D.1.2. Inventory Technology, Standards and Policies” the details from the in depth report created by RankCloudz Online evaluation were used to provide an insight into the performance and relative ranking of major IaaS providers based on the requirements of WATERNOMICS platform (pages 41-43), along with Gartner’s “Magic quadrant for cloud infrastructure as a service” published in 2014.
