The cloud is a set of services and technologies that enable the delivery of computing services over the Internet in real time, allowing end-users instant access to data and applications from any device with Internet access. Although still in its infancy, gaining traction has not been a problem. New In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com) research forecasts that IaaS (infrastructure as a service) is set to grow to roughly $4 billion by 2015.
“Growth is expected in all public cloud service segments,” says Greg Potter, Analyst. “Many SaaS (software-as-a-service) applications have been around for a long time, but only now since the advent of entire platforms for applications, such as Google Apps and Force.com, are these applications gaining the necessary visibility among businesses to gain traction in the software market. Infrastructure-as-a-service is also gaining traction, especially in the small business market.”
