Synergy estimates that quarterly cloud infrastructure service revenues (including IaaS, PaaS and private & hybrid cloud) are now approaching the $5 billion milestone, with trailing twelve-month revenues exceeding $16 billion. Total 2014 revenues grew by 48 percent from the previous year.

“The momentum that has been built up at AWS and Microsoft is particularly impressive. They have an ever-broadening portfolio of services and they are also benefitting from a slowdown in the super-aggressive price competition that was a feature of the first half of 2014,” John Dinsdale, chief analyst and research director at Synergy Research Group, said.
