State of the Cloud – January 2011

January 19th, 2011 |  Published in State of the Cloud  |  18 Comments

This month’s update to our survey of cloud providers is brief but brings excitement in the race for the top spot. Let’s get to it.

Snapshot for January 2011

In this month’s update, following some refreshed IP block info integrated into the survey, Rackspace’s numbers look better than ever – they can be proud to be just a hair away from the top spot. For all intents and purposes, in this survey Amazon EC2 and the Rackspace Cloud are tied at first place.

Trends

At this level of zoom, the red and blue merge into one line. What will happen next month… stay tuned!

How about IBM. They are making a lot of noise about their cloud offerings and investment and yet they don’t feature at all… some commentary on this would be appreciated!

Thanks

[…] State of the Cloud – January 2011 (From Jack of All Clouds) If this is accurate, I’d say kudos to Rackspace. Still, AWS appears to be earning far more revenue than Cloud Servers, and who knows how Joyent and GoGrid are doing. If revenue is the measure, maybe they’d look better. […]

Is it feasible/common for people to use only AWS to host PHP/MySQL websites? – Admins Goodies says:

October 16th, 2011 at 3:50 am (#)

[…] It is more common for small businesses or new businesses to use AWS – it has low capital costs (which potentially equate to lower risk), which makes it easier to enter into a market which would previously have required considerably computing resources 1.

Of the top 500k sites, over 10k use cloud services, with about 4k of those being on AWS 2. […]
