Cloud Computing: Blistering Growth Projected for IaaS in 2013

By Dick Weisinger

The global public cloud computing market will grow 18.5% in 2013 to $131 billion, up from $111 billion in 2012, according to Gartner analysts. So cloud computing is hot, and some sectors of the market are boiling.  Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), including cloud compute, storage and printing, are expected to grow at rates that exceed 47 percent.

Gartner breaks down the public cloud marketing market into the following segments:

48 percent – Cloud advertising
28 percent – Business process as a service (BPaaS)
14.7 percent – Software as a Service (SaaS)
5.5 percent – Cloud systems infrastructure (IaaS)
2.8 percent – Cloud management, security and automation
1 percent – Application development/Platform as a Service (PaaS)

Ed Anderson, research director at Gartner, said that “The continued growth of the cloud services market will result from the adoption of cloud services for production systems and workloads, in addition to the development and testing scenarios that have led as the most prominent use case for public cloud services to date. ¬†Evidence of this growth is found in the increasing demand for cloud services from end-user organizations, met by an increased supply of cloud services from suppliers.”
