The adoption of cloud computing has become a major driving force for businesses. Today, applications to drive innovation, reduce costs and increase agility have gone beyond non-premises data centres.
Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) is a model where third-party providers host and maintain basic infrastructure on behalf of the customer, including hardware, software, servers, and storage.
The cloud service provider in USA and India, typically involves hosting applications in a highly scalable environment, where customers are only charged for their infrastructure.
Early concerns about security and data sovereignty have been largely addressed by the ‘big three’ public cloud vendors – Amazon Web Services (AWS), Micro Azure services and the Google Cloud services– to be cautious when it comes to only highly regulated businesses in USA and India to adopt cloud services.
According to the latest figures from research firm Gartner, this will boost the IaaS market, valued at $ 33.2 billion in 2021.
When it comes to AWS vs Microsoft Azure cloud, AWS had dominated for over a year when it entered the segment in 2006.
Now, AWS is the clear market leader globally, accounting for 33% of public IaaS and PaaS market share in Synergy Research Group’s data for the third quarter of 2019. Microsoft follows it at 16 percent and Google at 8 percent.
