China – Gearing Up for Regional Cloud Leadership18 Jun, 2012 ~
IT and cloud computing are key drivers to improving the economic competitiveness of China under its latest government-led development plan. Homegrown cloud technologies and services are emerging, spearheaded by the country's main network equipment vendors. Although a competitive landscape for infrastructure cloud services in China is taking shape, no clear leader has emerged yet. The market also includes commercial cloud services being sold into China from neighboring territories. We expect to see major opportunities for cloud operators and service providers in the next few years, and anticipate an influx of investment, particularly in cloud-enabling technologies.
The proliferation of cloud computing in China will depend heavily on rules that safeguard competition, which would allow alternative infrastructure providers and large incumbents to compete on equal footing. With the right mix of commercial and regulatory initiatives, the cloud opportunity in China could be immense. This report focuses on key trends that are shaping the Chinese cloud market. It provides a preliminary forecast of total cloud market sizing for IaaS in Asia-Pacific through 2015 and examines near-term deployment trends. It also profiles a number of first-movers in China's IaaS arena, including CDN providers, datacenter specialists, ISPs, systems integrators and managed IT providers.
