"The use of public cloud IaaS by enterprises has rapidly increased in the past two years, creating new demands and new expectations of services," said Deepak Mohan, research director, Cloud Infrastructure Services at IDC. "Cloud providers have been quick to respond, with partnerships, service expansions, and easier onboarding, to better enable workload onboarding and digital transformation for enterprises. The effectiveness of each provider's response, and the ability to continue addressing new demands from enterprises, is emerging as a critical determinant of success in this market."
