This report examines the overall state of the marketplace, profiling the major providers of cloud services in Europe. It includes a leaderboard of cloud infrastructure players, and takes a detailed look at various local markets.

  2. 2. REPORT SNAPSHOTTITLE State of the European Cloud Provider MarketANALYSTS Daniel Beazer, Senior Analyst – European Hosting, Cloud, and Data Centre Doug Toombs, Research Manager – Hosting and Managed ServicesRELEASE DATE February 2012LENGTH 37 pagesABOUT THIS REPORTTech’s favourite buzzword went mainstream in Europe in 2011. ‘Cloud’ enteredeveryday language, and newspapers and TV devoted much space and airtime to thenew phenomenon; surely time, the cynic might think, to declare the trend over-hyped.However, cloud computing in Europe, at least in its new Internet-based form, has hardlybegun. Millions if not hundreds of millions of dollars, euros and pounds have beenspent developing cloud products and services, but so far the revenue stream is littlemore than a trickle.Nevertheless, there are many reasons to be cheerful about the European cloud market.Most carriers and hosters have delivered on promises made over the last few years todeliver a cloud portfolio, however rudimentary. Many are seeing cloud products withrevenue growth of nearly 20% or more. A flurry of investments in the space shows thatcapital is available and forthcoming for the industry. Finally, there are some genuinelyinteresting and innovative start-ups appearing across the region. Small at the moment,they are all seeing the kind of growth that shows there is a genuine appetite for cloudservices in the region, across the whole enterprise spectrum. Despite the gloomyeconomic climate, they inspire confidence that Europe companies can play a role in theunfolding cloud drama.451 RESEARCH: HOSTING © 2012 451 RESEARCH, LLC AND/OR ITS AFFILIATES.
