10 Leading Private Cloud Companies

Posted September 26, 2016 By  Cynthia Harvey

Deciding which private cloud vendors are the leading private cloud companies is somewhat complex. When it comes to the public cloud, it's pretty easy to figure out which companies are the leaders. Amazon Web Services dominates the market with Microsoft, IBM and Google trailing and several niche players farther down the list.

But the private cloud market is far more diverse – in part because it takes a lot of different types of products and services to build a private cloud. Some vendors sell cloud-ready hardware, others sell cloud software and still others sell virtual private cloud services.

While the private cloud market isn't as large as the market for public cloud services, it's still very substantial. According to Technology Business Research, companies spent $41 billion on private cloud computing in 2014, and that total will likely grow to $69 billion by 2018, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14 percent.

This slideshow looks at some of the private cloud leaders in this rapidly growing market, detailing their product offerings and their various strengths.
