Cloud Adoption And Spending Trends Around AWS, Azure And Google Cloud
As Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud continue to battle for public cloud supremacy, a new report is shining light on where enterprises and SMBs are placing their bets on this year regarding the world’s three largest cloud providers.
Flexera’s new 2022 State of the Cloud report includes over 750 respondents made up of mostly directors and managers in the Unites States, providing great insight on where these cloud decision makers are placing their cloud bets.
“Cloud adoption was already expanding for several years—and has been accelerated by the pandemic—but as a post-pandemic world begins to take shape, new trends in cloud usage are coming into focus,” said Flexera in its new report.
Seattle-based AWS is the market share leader in the public cloud, followed by Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft and Mountain View, Calif.-based Google. However, according to Flexera’s new 2022 State of the Cloud report, Azure is gaining ground on AWS, while Google is currently being experimented by many for potential future plans.
AWS, Microsoft and Google are each spending billions annually on building and equipping new data centers to meet the skyrocketing demand for their cloud services. IT research firm Gartner predicts that public cloud services revenue will increase 22 percent globally in 2022 year over year, due to broad acceleration of cloud adoption.
Approximately 46 percent of Flexera survey respondents are from organizations containing 5,001 to more than 10,000 employees, while 33 percent are from businesses with 1,001 to 5,000 employees, and 21 percent are from companies with 1,000 employees or less.
