OpenStack has seen tremendous growth over the last four years in terms of investment and community expansion," said Al Sadowski, Research Director. "The open-source platform is increasingly a consideration for private cloud deployments.

The OpenStack technology market, which is still in its nascent stage, will grow from $883 million in revenue in 2014 to $3.3 billion in 2018, as enterprises and vendors increasingly adopt the open-source platform for developing and deploying cloud services. That represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 40% for the six years ending in 2018.

This forecast is based on 451 Research’s new OpenStack Market Monitor & Forecast service, which presents data generated via a bottom-up analysis of more than 60 vendors that support OpenStack or base their products or services on the OpenStack framework. 451 Research's OpenStack Market Monitor & Forecast focuses on the key public and private vendors that directly provide OpenStack offerings – including products, services and turnkey offerings around OpenStack deployment and management; various distributions of OpenStack; training and other OpenStack-related services; DevOps tools; and PaaS on OpenStack. The market-sizing analysis excludes hardware-centric revenue, as well as revenue from indirect third-party vendors, such as those in storage or software-defined networking.

While current OpenStack revenue overwhelmingly comes from the 30 vendors in the service-provider space, 451 Research analysts expect an uptick in revenue from all segments, especially from the companies in the OpenStack products, distributions and management space, which are primarily targeting enterprises.
