The market is now on a maturing path and many new entrants are entering the scene to provide a broad range of services.
Some of them are playing key roles in the crowded cloud computing ecosystem. As public cloud still lags behind private clouds, due to a number of factors, a number of organizations are going ahead and are establishing such private clouds for their own organizational uses for example Amazon cloud computing . Although, 2012 to date has been a bleak year, organizations are still trying to find out new ways and means of working such that they can increase their efficiency and profitability.
