The Explosive Growth of Cloud Computing [INFOGRAPHIC]
Posted on April 17th 2014
Here we have an infographic from a United Kingdom based ISP called Eclipse, all about the growth of cloud computing.
The 1st section of the infographic is about the growth of cloud computing, from its initial inception in 2008, to the widespread adoption we see today. There is a graph that shows that in 2008 the cloud computing industry was estimated to be worth $46 billion and in 2014 it is estimated to be worth more than $150 billion.
The 2nd part shows us that 75% of the people that Forbes surveyed, used some form of cloud computing platform for different things and that the most commonly used cloud computing platforms are Google, Microsoft and Amazon.
In the next bit there is information about the future of cloud computing including stats, like more than 50 percent of all information technology will be in the cloud in the next 5-10 years.
Finally there is a chart that shows which types of data are most often stored on the cloud including business documents, email, photographs and more.
Here is the infographic guys, enjoy and let me know what you think in the comments or by posting on FB or Twitter.
