Westford, USA, Aug. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As businesses continue to embrace digital transformation, demand for public cloud services is on the rise. In fact, public cloud adoption has surpassed private cloud adoption in many organizations. As per SkyQuest analysis, the demand for public cloud is increasing on account of inexpensive monthly fees and the ability to scale up or down depending on demand are just two of the advantages public cloud services offer. Plus, many public clouds have tighter security than traditional on-premises solutions, making them an attractive option for companies who want to keep their data safe.

Apart from this, the global public cloud market is witnessing growing adoption as they allow companies to reduce their infrastructure costs by offloading certain tasks to the cloud.

Market Players are Growing with Different Strategies and Philosophy   

Public cloud computing companies are increasingly competing with each other to offer the best deals and services. One way they are doing this is by offering lower prices for data storage, compute, and networking. Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and Alibaba are all major players in public cloud computing, and they all have different features and philosophies that set them apart from one another.

One of the main differences between Amazon and Microsoft is that Amazon focuses on providing low-cost compute resources and data storage for web applications, while Microsoft offers higher-end services for larger organizations. Google is well known for its search engines and other online services, so it has focused heavily on building innovative cloud computing products that can be used to power applications across industries. Alibaba is a major player in the Chinese market, so it focuses on developing innovative apps that can be used by businesses in that country.

80% Businesses are Planning to increase Public Cloud Infrastructure

In June 2022, SkyQuest studied over 1,000 organizations from SME to large enterprises across IT, Retail, and Healthcare domain. The study found that public clouds are now available in 94% of organizations surveyed, and 80% of organizations plan to increase their use of public clouds in the next three years. However, there are some areas of concern: 83% of organizations are concerned about security, and 76% are concerned about compliance. This growth is being driven by the realization that public cloud offers benefits such as scalability, security, and flexibility that are difficult to achieve in on-premises solutions.

The study also finds that these businesses are rapidly shifting to the public cloud because they eliminate the need for separate IT operations for data center resources, applications, systems management, backup and recovery, disaster recovery planning, and security management. This makes it easier to manage all IT resources through one platform.
