The Cloud Infrastructure Market Looks Bright With AWS

AWS

The massive and much sought after cloud infrastructure market continues to be the AWS cup of tea, this quarter reveals. The businesses of Microsoft, Google, Alibaba and other big players continue to grow at an exponential rate. Despite this, however, these companies have not created a significant dent on AWS' firm hold of the cloud infrastructure market.

In fact, Amazon's cloud computing arm seems to have cut its teeth on 35% of the cloud infrastructure market despite relentless competition from the big guys. For example, Microsoft has a USD $20 billion run rate. But that is mainly from software instead of the cloud infrastructure market.

That's why it's so important to compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges. And when all is said and done, that AWS spell on the cloud infrastructure market remains stronger than ever. This scenario has led Synergy to declare that the Amazon company is on a league of its own.
