Cloud Infrastructure & Platforms Benchmark

As workloads become the most important driver of cloud adoption, TBR’s Cloud Infrastructure & Platforms Benchmark takes an in-depth look at the infrastructure (IaaS) and platforms (PaaS) markets. Though the IaaS space is quite consolidated, the ecosystem strategies driving growth for leading vendors have far reaching implications for developers, services, and alliance partners. PaaS is becoming a critical market for vendors to differentiate, catering to growing multivendor and delivery methods being utilized by end customers.

In this benchmark, we will analyze the strategies of the leading providers in the IaaS and PaaS markets, uncovering the common and differentiated strategies being used in products, resources and go-to-market tactics. Analysis will be segmented by IaaS, PaaS, public cloud, hosted private cloud and hybrid delivery methods as well as by geography.
