Infrastructure as a Service
Compute resources delivered as an ongoing cloud service. Services at this layer may include any combination of hosting and storage. At its simplest, IaaS is about providing pooled computing and storage services to users. IaaS Service Providers provide outsourced servers, OS, storage, datacenter space, network equipment, etc., via a virtualized environment paid for by end users on an on-demand basis.
Public Cloud IaaS will experience robust growth through 2018, driven by adoption of storage and compute services.
From 2015, revenue will continue to grow at a slower pace in South America, EMEA and North America due to continued growth in data storage and computing needs.
