Weekly Poll: Is the Cloud Infrastructure Market Too Crowded?

We wrote last week about the state of the cloud services market and how crowded it is becoming.

Cloud Bzz lists more than 30 providers. That includes companies that provide enterprise private clouds, public clouds and public sector clouds. John Treadway’s take is that over the next few years there will be at most five or six companies that matter in the cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) space.

Do you agree? Is the cloud services market too crowded?

But a shakeout may not happen for quite some time. If the market is really as large as some think, then it’s logical that many of the companies in the space will survive. GoGrid, for instance, says the cloud infrastructure market is valued at $150 billion.

And study after study shows double digit increases in related cloud markets such as SaaS.

So, is there too much blood in the water? Is it too early to tell? What do you think?
