Worldwide Hosted Private Cloud Services Forecast, 2015–2019: New Models for Delivering Infrastructure Services

This IDC study examines the hosted private cloud (HPC) market, which includes dedicated hosted private cloud (DHPC) and on-demand hosted private cloud (ODHPC), providing market sizing for 2014 and a five-year growth forecast for 2015–2019, along with forecast assumptions and market trends for the same period. This study updates Worldwide Hosted Private Cloud Services 2012–2016 Forecast: New Models for Delivering Infrastructure Services (IDC #238689, December 2012)."The worldwide market for hosted private cloud, which amounted to $8.9 billion in 2014, will grow at a CAGR of 35.4% to reach $40.6 billion in 2019," says Melanie Posey, research VP for IaaS/Hosting Infrastructure Services. "IDC expects the two HPC models — on-demand and dedicated — to coexist in the short term but anticipates that the on-demand model will emerge as the predominant operational model as end users embrace the agility and flexibility of automated provisioning for virtually 'private' resources."
