Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

IT Hosting Services Procurement in the US

This report is intended to assist buyers of IT hosting services, or Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). IT hosting services are also referred to as cloud computing services which can remotely provide the comprehensive functions of a traditional IT department, including hardware, software, maintenance, security and other resources. These functions are delivered through the cloud and hosted on the vendor’s servers rather than on the buyer's hardware. Buyers maintain control over the operating systems, storage and deployed applications, but entrust all other hardware and software services to the supplier. Major buyers in this market include retailers, financial institutions and manufacturers. This report excludes data processing and web hosting services.
