The cloud infrastructure market has been led by the usual suspects for nearly a decade now, including industry giants Amazon Web Services, IBM and Microsoft. But the hybrid cloud trend has turned the market on its ear, and it's leaving room for players such as VMware and Virtustream to enter the fray.

Cloud infrastructure today doesn’t just mean servers. It also includes network, storage, virtualization and management services, which is opening the door for niche providers to get into the game. The global cloud infrastructure market is projected to exceed $206 billion by the end of 2020.

And that’s a trend that's only creating more opportunity for cloud service providers—especially of the channel-friendly variety.
