Structure Research Publishes Cloud Computing Reports: Managed Third Party Cloud and Cloud Provider Financial Modeling

New reports demonstrate research innovation at next-generation research firm.

TORONTO, Ontario – July 27, 2015 – Structure Research, a next-generation research firm focused on the global hosting and cloud infrastructure services industry, today announced the release of two cloud computing reports: Managing Third Party Clouds and Amazon Web Services Financial Model versus RAX.

The question of whether to resell and manage massive-scale clouds like AWS and Azure has crept on to the roadmaps of hosters and service providers. The Managing Third Party Cloud report takes an in-depth look at the pros and cons of this strategy and tracks the market activity that has emerged in these early stages.

The AWS cloud has been the subject of much conjecture since it hit the market in 2006. With financial disclosures now available, it is interesting to see how the AWS cloud is performing and tracking. This report breaks down those numbers, projects them going forward and produces various useful metrics and benchmarks. It then compares the same metrics with those of the Rackspace cloud.

“Structure Research is about getting past run-of-the-mill commentary and delving into what the other analysts aren’t telling you or looking at,” stated Philbert Shih, managing director of Structure Research and lead author of the two reports. ”Managing third party cloud is a topic we have been on top of since the onset but it has been mostly ignored by the large research shops. And while there has been lots of talk about AWS, no firms have taken a stab at building a financial model, comparing it with a peer and trying to make sense of AWS’s grand strategy”.

“Structure Research was founded to provide unique and innovative analysis and these two reports demonstrate the depth of our perspective,” stated Shih.

These reports are an excellent resource for any service provider, investor or enterprise end user looking to understand and project the cloud infrastructure market or evaluate a service provider.
