Global Cloud Service Availability: Beyond Infrastructure

Using Cloud Price Index data, we examine the availability of four public cloud services, both globally and by region, to analyze how the cloud market is maturing beyond just virtual machines into value-added services such as databases and storage. Through this analysis, we show which regions are most adventurous in supporting cloud adoption and where portfolio gaps remain. We also reveal opportunities for service providers, and potential pitfalls for end users.
