Introduction

The cloud market is moving forward as reflected in both the evolving perspectives voiced by IT decision-makers and by the business success of cloud service providers. On perspectives, Stratecast’s recurring annual surveys reveal that public cloud adoption has now reached a much-awaited tipping point with % of the 2014 survey respondents stating that they currently use public cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and another % stating they will too within the next months.2 On cloud service providers, the business results of Amazon Web Services (AWS), now in its eighth year and still rapidly growing, make a similar statement. Late-2014 results for AWS include the following:
- Number of AWS active subscribers is over 1 million.
- Revenues for this multi-billion dollar Amazon entity grew more than % year-over-year.
- Core compute and storage services’ usage is accelerating, as demonstrated by a % year-over-year increase in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance usage and a % year-over-year increase in data transfers to and from Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).

This noteworthy growth at AWS is occurring despite lingering concerns over security in cloud adoption. In the same 2014 Stratecast survey, inability to control access and meet regulatory requirements were noted as “very important” reasons in not adopting public cloud services by 50% or more of the survey respondents. Yet, conversely, AWS’s customer base continues to diversify, including a growing number of government agencies and commercial companies subject to data governance regulations. As further evidence of strengthening confidence in using AWS when sensitive data and critical applications are involved, Johnson & Johnson, a global pharmaceutical, healthcare and baby products company, will be equipping of its employees and business partners with Amazon WorkSpaces, a desktop-as-a-service application, in 2015. Amazon WorkSpaces, like other desktop-as-a-service offerings, is relatively young in market availability—all the more impressive in consideration of the large-scale plans of Johnson & Johnson. Following a five-month limited preview period, general availability for WorkSpaces commenced in March of this year. As will be described later, a secure foundation for hosting WorkSpaces is a contributor.

In this SPIE, Stratecast describes how AWS is breaking the “cloud not secure enough” adoption barrier and, in the process, injecting innovation into the competitive dynamics of the security market.
