Hosted private cloud is revitalizing the hosting infrastructure services market, which will grow 7.1% CAGR between 2014 and 2019 in Western Europe. However, hosting is more than cloud — traditional hosting, particularly colocation, are still important market segments. This study outlines the dynamics of and interplay between these segments of the hosting market and forecasts the European market for each subsegment to 2019.
"Cloud has made hosting an interesting and vibrant marketplace once more," said Jamie Snowdon, vice president, IDC European Services. "Enterprises seeking the flexibility of cloud and the security of traditional hosting are choosing private cloud solutions for core areas of their IT, which in turn is driving growth in other areas of the market."
