Hyper-Growth For Hyper-Scalers

Amazon wasn't the only hyper-scaler to see gains in 2018. Its closest two competitors, Microsoft and Google, also expanded their share of the market.

Microsoft, with its Azure public cloud, saw a jump of nearly 3 points, from 13 percent share in 2017 to 15 percent in 2018. And Google, offering Google Cloud Platform, ticked up from 6 to 7 percent.

The three largest hyper-scalers combined went from 52 to 56 percent share as they scaled faster than the already surging market average.

Only IBM ceded ground.

In 2017, Big Blue and Google were nearly tied, but IBM's share declined slightly—within a percentage point—last year. IBM is carving out a different niche, Dinsdale noted, and "it remains the strong leader in the hosted private cloud services segment of the market."

Alibaba also eked out global share, growing from 4 to 5 percent.

Those top five providers control more than three-quarters of the total market.
