PaaS services still remain relatively niche and are mainly used by developers and otherIT specialists. However, steady growth will ensure, with the proliferation of mobile devicesincreasing demand for small and interoperable applications. Interoperability with PC basedsoftware through HTML 5 and other programming languages will boost individual softwaredevelopers’ as much as large enterprises.Visiongain calculates the PaaS submarket will be worth $1.9 billion globally in 2013. Visiongaincalculates the CAGR for the period 2013-2018 to be 14.3%, with the market reaching $3.7 billionby 2018.

Leading Companies in the Cloud Computing EcosystemThe range of available cloud solutions and providers is vast and difficult to effectively quantify dueto the range and difference in offerings. Certain vendors have simply rebranded existing serviceswhile others offer cloud specific services. An overview of leading vendors dealing in solutions in anumber of different areas will serve to give a general impression of the types of services availableand the nature of the provider landscape.8.1 Cloud Software & Application VendorsThe majority of SaaS business software vendors have yet to deliver market specific businesssolutions for commonly recognised customer markets. For the most part, the industry is still in itsgrowth stages and many SaaS manufacturers view the global market as a single, heterogeneousentity.Early SaaS pioneers boasted the SaaS delivery model rather than the capabilities of their ownSaaS applications. More recently however, many start-ups are promoting credible SaaS solutionsthat replace the client/server and mega vendors’ solutions, thereby bringing new competition to theon-demand market place. Table 8.1 shows a brief overview of SaaS vendors which have met withrelative success.Table 8.1 Popular Cloud Software and Application VendorsAbiquoEnterprise cloud management software with unlimited physical and cloud resources in the private,public or hybrid cloud.AccelOpsIntegrated data centre and cloud services monitoring with software delivered as a virtual applianceor SaaS.AkamaiSecurity and storage capabilities with cloud optimisation offerings to improve performance, increaseavailability, and boost security of applications and data.AppDynamicsApp management for new application architectures including the cloud or in the data centre, tomonitor, troubleshoot, diagnose and scale production applications.ApprendaCloud middleware with SaaS Grid next-generation application server built for delivering business-critical applications on the Web.CloudOptixCloud virtualization software MeghaWare for launching multivendor public and private clouds andconnect and unify them into a custom hybrid cloud solution.CloudSwitchSoftware appliance acts as a gateway to the cloud to run apps while keeping applicationsintegrated with data centre tools and policies.
