Forrester has entered the conversation on AI infrastructure best practice with a guide to “The 13 Providers That Matter Most And How They Stack Up.” The highly anticipated Forrester Wave™: AI Infrastructure, Q4 2021 gives IT professionals and AI infrastructure buyers much-needed guidance on purchasing options for on-prem infrastructure, cloud services, or a mix of both.
The creation of the first AI Infrastructure Wave™ reflects increasing momentum in AI adoption, the demands of diverse AI workloads, and scaling IT infrastructure.
Forrester scored the AI infrastructure vendors using 25 different evaluation criteria. In order to appear in this Wave™, the thirteen vendors had to first meet Forrester’s high bar for inclusion: A comprehensive, differentiated AI infrastructure solution, at least ten enterprise customer references with proven revenue from the vendor’s solution, and significant market presence and/or Forrester client interest.
Run:AI, a leader in compute orchestration for AI workloads, received the highest possible scores against Forrester’s software and operations criteria. The report notes that “Run:AI’s sweet spot is enterprises that want complete flexibility in the hardware they choose to use and where they choose to run it.” To celebrate their recognition in the Forrester Wave™: AI Infrastructure, Q4 2021, Run:AI is offering free access to the report for a limited time.
