The total cloud market in India,now at US$ 400 million, is expected to reach a market value of US$4.5 billion by 2015, of which private cloud adoption will dominate and account for US$3.5 billion in revenues, growing at over 60 per cent.

Cloud spend of IT is expected to grow from 1.4 per cent in 2010 to 8.2 per cent by 2015. IT/IES, Telecom, BFSI, Manufacturing verticals and government is expected to lead spends in this, as per the study tittled “Private Cloud Landscape in India”. Going forward, Indian IT services will be called on to provide private cloud to global enterprises. However, getting skilled manpower to address these huge opportunity is going to be a challenge.

According to the study, private cloud is expected to see an increased preference over public cloud over the next five years as the latter was being hindered by issues related to data security, latency, corporate governance and auditing and vendor lock in.
