In the public cloud business, scale matters.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) continues to dominate the cloud infrastructure services market with a 31 percent worldwide market share.
The big three followers--Microsoft, IBM and Google--collectively account for 22 percent market share.
The next 20 top-ranked cloud providers accounted for 27 percent.
Microsoft and Google both achieved growth rates of well over 100 percent.
Outside of the big four, the next 20 cloud providers are growing at an average 41 percent per year, but in a market that is growing at over 50 percent that means that most of them are losing market share, according to researchers at Synergy Research.
