Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Cloud Services Market Shares, 1H15

Author: Chris Morris Vice President, IDC Asia/Pacific
Abstract

With this 1H15 release of IDC's Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) Public Cloud Services Tracker, we have increased the coverage of APEJ vendors from 130 to 180, allowing us for the first time to publish market share data for the major markets.

No one should be surprised that Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the overall market leader, with its massive share of the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) market, overcoming its less dominant position in the platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS) markets. However, what is of note is the very large market share held by the "Others" category, and the very high growth rates shown by Microsoft Azure and Aliyun. They now hold the third and fourth market share positions, respectively, on all cloud services (after AWS and Others) and lead in growth rates across all categories.

As such, they have been the growth leaders in the region and are beginning to provide a highly competitive alternative to AWS from their differing positions of strength.

"This document is the inaugural of market shares of public cloud service providers in the APEJ region. The leading vendors in each cloud category are ranked, and a description of the market conditions and major changes in the rankings is included. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the overall market leader, with its massive share of the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) market, in contrast to its less dominant position in the platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS) markets. However, what is of note is the very large market share held by the "Others" group in all categories, and the very high growth rates shown by Microsoft Azure and Aliyun. They now hold the third and fourth market share positions, respectively, on all cloud services (after AWS and Others) and lead in growth rates across all categories," says Chris Morris, Vice President, IT Services and Cloud Services Research for Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan).
