Wake up! The private cloud fantasy is over
FEBRUARY 16, 2016
The private cloud's market size is about $7 billion , according to the analysts at Wikibon. That's a quarter the size of the public cloud market, which Wikibon estimates as about $25 billion. Indeed, the value of Amazon Web Services (AWS) alone is larger than the entire private cloud market -- AWS's market share came in at $7.9 billion in 2015. Other surveys show that the private cloud is still growing, but it won’t overtake public clouds.
