Cloud Growth Reaches New Heights

By Mark Sullivan | January 12, 2018

There is no denying the importance cloud computing has played in the digitalization of organizations over the years. And as we enter 2018, the question is no longer when will the cloud take hold, but how big is the market going to get?

A new report from Synergy Research gives a glimpse into how much growth the cloud market has experience over the past couple of years, and how big the market is today. Based on cloud sales over 2017 and the end of 2016, including across services and infrastructure products, the market reached $180 billion. During that same period, businesses spent nearly $100 billion on services alone.

According to Synergy’s chief analyst John Dinsdale, “cloud has gone from becoming mainstream, to dominating IT segments, to being the new normal.”

At Markley, we’ve seen this transformation first-hand. Our clients have been at the forefront of adopting IaaS services across private, public and hybrid cloud, and our cloud experts are dedicated to understanding the latest platforms and technologies available.
