This IDC study presents an updated five-year forecast for the worldwide public cloud enabling IT infrastructure market. IDC estimates this market totaled $9.2 billion in 2012 and will increase to more than $20.1 billion in 2017. This is the first time IDC has published this study.
"The market for public cloud enabling IT infrastructure is expected to demonstrate double-digit growth for the next several years as cloud service providers continue to build on large-scale datacenter environments to host and deliver a wide range of cloud services," explains Mary Johnston Turner, IDC research vice president, Enterprise Systems Management Software. "Although the market has been anchored by demand in North America in its early days, IDC expects growth rates around the world will be strong as the market for public cloud services expands globally."
