AWS continues to dominate the cloud infrastructure services market, achieving a worldwide market share of over 31 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015, said Synergy Research Group.
Microsoft and Google have the highest growth rates among the market leaders but are making little impact on AWS.
IBM continues to lead within the private and hybrid services segment.
The quarterly cloud infrastructure service revenues (including IaaS, PaaS and private & hybrid cloud) are now approaching the $7 billion milestone, with trailing twelve-month revenues exceeding $23 billion.
The growth in cloud infrastructure service market in 2015 was 52 percent.
John Dinsdale, chief analyst and research director at Synergy Research Group, said the second tier of operators are either niche players, generalist IT service providers, or companies lacking the scale, focus and investment capabilities required to truly challenge the top four hyperscale cloud providers.
Second tier operators in cloud infrastructure service market include Salesforce, Rackspace, Oracle, NTT, Fujitsu, Alibaba and HPE.
