Worldwide Competitive Public Cloud Platform as a Service Market Shares, 2017: Microservices and Serverless Offerings Drive Continued Growth
This IDC study reports on the two prior years as the market measurements have matured. It also provides a competitive analysis of the worldwide public cloud platform-as-a-service market and the associated submarkets in calendar year 2017.
"Cloud service providers are adapting their offerings to deliver unique benefits to developers by automating and abstracting the complexity of the complete development life cycle. Open source cloud-native initiatives are gaining adoption across the spectrum, displacing traditional platform-as-a-service offerings. The preference of containers for workload delivery is driving growth in demand for container management and security solutions to manage on-premise platform implementations, while public cloud service providers are increasingly packaging entire container stacks, giving developers complete abstraction of the application development and delivery process." — Larry Carvalho, research director for PaaS
