Microsoft Azure Is Growing Fast, But Amazon Web Services Is Dominating The Public Cloud Usage

Azure Usage vs Amazon Usage

RightScale’s 2015 cloud-computing survey shows usage of the leading cloud infrastructure platforms. Now that Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud are fully available for the past two years, it is fair to compare their usage and market share.
  • AWS still dominates in public cloud; Azure makes inroads among enterprises.
  • AWS continues to lead overall in public cloud adoption, with 57 percent of respondents.
  • Azure IaaS has moved into the clear #2 position, doubling from 6 percent in 2014 to 12 percent in the 2015 survey.
  • IaaS offerings from Azure continue to generate a lot of interest and potential for future adoption — 17 percent of respondents are experimenting with or plan to use it.
In the enterprise public cloud usage, the story is little different.
Azure Enterprise Usage
Even though AWS still maintains a lead (50 percent vs. 49 percent in 2014), but Azure IaaS has closed the gap significantly (19 percent vs. 11 percent in 2014). Also, 36 percent of enterprise respondents are experimenting with or planning to use Azure as compared to 24 percent for AWS. In the SMB public cloud usage, Azure IaaS adoption grew for smaller companies in 2015 (9 percent vs. 4 percent in 2014).
Azure Private Cloud Usage
Among enterprises, as expected, VMware is more widely used (53 percent for vSphere and 26 percent for vCloud Suite). This represents almost no change compared to the 2014 survey.Microsoft System Center holds third position with 19 percent adoption among larger organizations, while OpenStack increased from 15 percent last year to 18 percent in 2015. Microsoft Azure Pack, a new entry, is being used by 11 percent of enterprise respondent
