Infrastructure as a Service Market in Latin America, Forecast to 2021

Infrastructure as a Service Market in Latin America, Forecast to 2021

The Latin American Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) market has been witnessing changes in the consumer mindset towards cloud computing. Companies of different sizes and across a variety of verticals are increasingly understanding the benefits of the IaaS business model and are making investments in the cloud. The strategy of shifting capital expenditure into operational expenditure is attractive in today’s economic environment. As opposed to investing money in expanding capacity, companies are turning to cloud services.

The hosted private cloud still has an important place in the Latin American IaaS market. The public cloud will grow at high rates throughout the forecast period, driven by the positive cost benefits relation it presents and by the increasing number of cloud native applications. However, the largest growth opportunities will emerge from the hybrid deployment model. In order to extract the most of the cloud, companies are increasingly investing in hybrid infrastructures that combine multiple configurations, such as on-premise private cloud, public cloud, hosted private cloud, and bare-metal cloud. Other trends that tend to create new opportunities in the region are managed services offerings and the growth of multicloud providers.
