History of Cloud Computing Investing
Businesses – large and small – are rushing to grab the huge cloud computing market pie. We can’t blame them – cloud computing is on demand, and both businesses and individuals starting to grasp the idea of cloud computing; and when they finally grasp the basics firmly, the sky is the limit.
Just check out these figures: Back in 2005, investment in cloud computing accounted for almost $26 million, with only 5 cloud computing investing deals in that particular day. Now, fast forward to 2009; the amount invested in the cloud reached a whopping $375 million – 14 times the total amount invested just 4 years ago; the number of deals also grew 14 times, from 5 in 2005 to 70 in 2009. Expect more stunning figures in 2012.
