Amazon Cloud, AWS, Bigger Than Its Four Main Competitors Combined?

Cloud Infrastructure Services Revenue Growth

Above: Q1 2015 data from Synergy Research Group indicated that Amazon Web Services (AWS) remained larger than its four main competitors combined in the cloud infrastructure service market. While Microsoft claimed the highest revenue growth rate and IBM claimed the private and hybrid services segment, AWS grew faster than the market as a whole and its market share increased up to 29% in Q1 2015. Google, while gaining market share, remained just half the size of Microsoft's Cloud market share. Salesforce, a leader in PaaS, rounded out the top five ranked Cloud companies, in Q1 2015. It will be interesting to compare Q1 2016 data, when it becomes available.
