Cloud Infrastructure helps in building and managing a private Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), a cloud based on management and data center virtualization technologies for traditional workloads. Using IaaS, it reduces the risk than establishing a data center for a new venture. Cloud infrastructure includes servers, network, storage, virtualization, security, infrastructure system, management, and backup & recovery. It allows enterprises to shift their workload from one cloud to another, avoiding lock-in that may occur when the customer depends more on a single cloud provider.

Available on demand over the internet, cloud infrastructure provides secure and standardizable, the pool of scalable, virtual IT resources and robust solutions. Implementing an integrated infrastructure, it delivers services faster, improves manageability, increases IT department’s value and reduces total cost of ownership. Cloud infrastructure is becoming a game changer for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) by offering scalable infrastructure and capabilities available as services.


The cloud infrastructure market is growing at a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period 2015–2020. The market growth is mainly due to the growing deployment of new cloud infrastructure setups as well as upgrading of existing cloud infrastructure setups to meet the increasing demand. The cloud infrastructure markets are primarily focused in North America and Western European regions. There has been a rapid growth to some extent in Asia Pacific region in the last two to three years.

One of the major trends in the market is the need to fulfil customer demands and reach the customer expectations. The majority of the projects in the Western Europe region are adopting IaaS service to build the ecosystem faster and offer better services to their clients.
