AWS Leads A Rapidly Growing Field

    Why Read This Report

    For many I&O professionals, developing a cloud strategy is a top priority for 2011 and 2012. After strategically selecting certain workloads fit for public IaaS, it's now time for selecting your vendor. But what solutions are available today, and how can you differentiate between them? Forrester examines the public IaaS cloud space in a three-part series divided into: 1) overview of the current market state; 2) evaluation of current leading public cloud services; and 3) evaluation of cloud platforms. In this report we identify 10 key categories of differentiating capabilities for public IaaS clouds and who has what. But this is only just a start — the best offering for you will depend on your use case and business needs. If your enterprise is US-based with no plans to extend internationally, geographic reach won't be as important. Likewise, additional hosting capabilities are only applicable if you plan to use those options.
