J’son & Partners Consulting presents main results of the research: RUSSIAN IAAS MARKET, RESULTS OF 2013.
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is the provision (automatic or on demand) of data-center infrastructure elements (processing capacity, storage, network settings) and network resources (bandwidth reservations, VPN, etc.), supporting corporate-class SLA by availability parameters, performance and security. IaaS services are designed to replace and supplement secondary hosting services and commercial data processing center (DPC) services.

Cloud IaaS market is becoming an extremely popular service in Russia. According to J'son & Partners Consulting’s forecast, market will be around 7 bln.RUB by 2018 with yearly growth rate – 29% during 2014 – 2018.
Leader by revenue from IaaS services in 2013 was I-Teco company (second year in a row). Company’s market share was 32%. Second largest market player with 28% is Croc. Both companies work with large business. Onlanta (main clients – large business) and Inovetica (Parking.ru) had taken third and forth places. It is reasonable to specify Oblakoteka among market players, which has actively started provide IaaS services only in 2013.

DRIVERS AND BARRIERS
At the moment, cloud services market is showing significant growth. Even with the current level of functionality of the services, the market is far away from saturation. As a result, according to J'son & Partners Consulting, the speed of development of this market will not significantly correlate with changes/improvements in the quality and functionality of cloud services. At the same time, the increasing activity of the current and new market players (especially large telecom companies) remains a very important factor.
Reduction in the price for cloud services may become a significant factor in the market growth. Sometimes the use of non-cloud infrastructure appears to be more profitable than cloud infrastructure.
Besides, “heavy” barrier – is the unwillingness of companies’ IT Directors to transit on cloud infrastructure as infrastructure can be changed and stuff reduction maybe one the results of such novelty.
A massive work is going in legislation sphere. J'son & Partners Consulting experts consider that market regulation and new decrees could positively influence the industry.
