European Infrastructure-as-a-Service Market, Forecast to 2021

This study aims to forecast and analyse the European Infrastructure-as-a-Service market outlook from 2016 to 2021.

Technological and economic benefits of using Infastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) continue to be the main factors driving enterprise migration to the cloud. The increased awareness of different types of cloud services (public, private, hybrid, managed) has led IT decision-makers to evaluate a hybrid IT strategy that helps them adopt the cloud configurations that best suit different application requirements. As a result, cloud service providers are aligning themselves to cater to the hybrid cloud/IT requirements of customers. Over the next 6 years, the European IaaS market is expected to grow rapidly at a CAGR (2016–2021) of 27.2% to reach 14.57 billion in 2021.
