Microsoft Azure Sales Top $1 Billion Challenging Amazon

Last week I’ve seen some Amazon Web Service’s revenue guestimates. Bloomberg posted an article about Microsoft Azure and related programs (?) revenue: $1 billion.

Interesting numbers:

  • market share: Amazon Web Services 71%, Microsoft Azure 20%
  • Azure grew 48% in the last 6 months
  • Gartner estimates the infrastructure segment of the cloud market at $6.17 billions in 2012 and growing to $30.6 billions in 2017
  • Gartner estimates total cloud market at $108.9 billions in 2012 and growing to $237.2 billions in 2017. (nb: I find this one weird as it includes online advertising and other less-cloudy-services-imo).

Amazon hasn’t given many details about the AWS platform, except 3 numbers:

  1. number of objects stored in S3. This has been doubling every year for the last 4 years
    1. Q4 2012: 1.3trillions
    2. Q3 2011: 566b
    3. Q4 2010: 262b
    4. Q4 2009: 102b
    5. Q4 2008: 40b
    6. Q4 2007: 14b
    7. Q4 2006: 2.9b
  2. number of requests per second AWS
  3. number of EMR clusters (?) spun

According to some slides from last October/November:

  1. S3 stored over 1.3 trillion objects
  2. AWS handles over 830k requests/s
  3. 3.7mil EMR clusters spun since 2010

While I don’t have any data about RDS and Dynamo, it would be great if Microsoft would release any details about Azure.

✚ If AWS has a market share of 71% and Azure 20%, that leaves Google plus others with 9%. Makes me wonder how accurate this data is.
