  • In its Forecast: Platform as a Service, Worldwide, 2010-2015, 3Q11 Update” report, Gartner also finds that the market will experience consistent growth with worldwide PaaS revenue, totaling $1.8 billion in 2015
  • Initial PaaS products primarily supported application server capability, but the market has since expanded to encompass other middleware capabilities as a service, such as integration, process management, and portal and managed file transfers (MFTs). PaaS offerings are increasingly set to take market share from the low end of the portal, application server and business process management (BPM) markets, however, as the technology matures, PaaS offerings will also challenge the upper layers of the market, added the analyst firm.
  • Gartner analysts said PaaS offerings are likely to expand the application integration and middleware (AIM) market by bringing in a new range of organizations that otherwise would have been packaged application and office software users.

  • Worldwide revenue from vendors selling external disk storage subsystems for cloud-based systems will grow from $267.4 million this year to $1.45 billion in 2015, according to Gartner.
  • In a recently released research report, Gartner said companies selling private and/or public cloud storage have seen annual revenue grow some 56% to date this year compared to 2010. As external cloud computing emerges as a new segment of the storage market, competition is increasing with leading commercial ECB (external controller-based) disk storage vendors developing or acquiring technologies that will serve as a good fit for external cloud deployments,” said Gartner analyst Sid Deshpande in a statement.
  • According to Gartner, the term “external cloud” refers to any public, private or hybrid cloud that serves multiple customers. “Internal clouds” are those deployed within a corporate data centers to serve the company’s internal clients. External clouds currently represent only 1.4% of the overall external array-based disk storage subsystem revenue last year, Gartner said, noting that the market is still in an early build-out stage.
  • Additionally, while small, midsize and large companies are utilizing software-as-a-service technologies (SaaS) today, the primary consumers of infrastructure as a service (IaaS) are still mostly smaller organizations at this point, the report stated. SaaS and IaaS provider segments will continue to constitute the bulk of revenue for ECB disk storage sales through 2015, Gartner predicted.
