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.
- 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:
- number of objects stored in S3. This has been doubling every year for the last 4 years
- Q4 2012: 1.3trillions
- Q3 2011: 566b
- Q4 2010: 262b
- Q4 2009: 102b
- Q4 2008: 40b
- Q4 2007: 14b
- Q4 2006: 2.9b
- number of requests per second AWS
- number of EMR clusters (?) spun
According to some slides from last October/November:
- S3 stored over 1.3 trillion objects
- AWS handles over 830k requests/s
- 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.
