Infonetics: Cloud services to top $200 billion by 2018; Google, IBM, Amazon lead market

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - November 13, 2014) - Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its new Cloud Services for IT Infrastructure and Applications market size, market share, and forecasts report, which tracks the off-premises cloud services market and the vendors who play in this space. (Infonetics recently released a related study on North American enterprises' cloud service strategies.)

The new 18-page cloud services report provides detailed analysis of the off-premises cloud services market, which consists of applications and computing infrastructure delivered from a cloud service provider's (CSP) data center, including infrastructure as a service (IaaS), cloud as a service (CaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS). To buy the report, contact Infonetics.

CLOUD ANALYST NOTE
"We continue to see new tools to automate data centers and technology for developers appear in the market, driving innovation around cloud as a service (CaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS), the revenue growth engines for off-premises cloud services," notes Cliff Grossner, Ph.D., directing analyst for data center, cloud, and SDN at Infonetics Research.

Grossner adds: "The move to hybrid cloud architectures fuels the adoption of CaaS as enterprises migrate their on-premises data centers to a cloud architecture, where servers, storage, and networks are virtualized and applications are automatically deployed by data center orchestration software."

CLOUD SERVICES MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Infonetics forecasts the off-premises cloud services market to reach over $200 billion in 2018
  • Software as a service (SaaS) represents more than 2/5 of all off-premise cloud service revenue out to 2018
  • North America is where off-premise cloud services started, and it will remain the lead market through at least 2018
  • Google is the market share leader for CaaS and PaaS, IBM is #1 for SaaS, and Amazon is tops in IaaS
