We believe this shows that Gartner recognizes Huawei Cloud’s full stack Cloud Infrastructure capability.

The Gartner MG report has extensive influence in the industry and is an important reference for the infrastructure & operation leader to select cloud infrastructure vendors.

Gartner MG report mentioned that " Hyperscale cloud IaaS providers in China are building or extending their cloud IaaS offerings across the four cloud types (cloud-enabling, cloud-inspired, pure cloud and cloud-enhanced), while smaller providers typically focus on competing in two or three of these areas.”
