Cloud application development: market stats

The global market size for cloud computing surpassed half a trillion USD in 2023 — and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14 percent until the end of this decade.

Similarly, end-user spending on public cloud application development services is at an all-time high. Breaking down the market pie, we have software-as-a-service (SaaS) claiming the largest share with $208 billion, followed closely by infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) at $156 billion and then platform-as-a-service (PaaS) at $136 billion, forming a substantial portion of the overall cloud investment.

Diversification in cloud adoption is evident, with 89 percent of businesses opting for multi-cloud solutions. Remarkably, a mere nine percent rely on a single public cloud, indicating a preference for hybrid cloud configurations. The majority, constituting 80 percent, leverage hybrid clouds (a mix of public and private), while seven percent opt for multiple public clouds, and two percent choose multiple private clouds.

We’re strategic in selecting the right development toolkit for your custom cloud solution so your stack seamlessly integrates with any major cloud service provider.

AWS

Durable, intuitive, secure, and accessible. Combine the AWS powerhouse of over 200 services with our in-house experience as an AWS Partner Network Member — and the result is a secure solution to propel your business forward.

Azure

Whether crafting new apps or deploying existing ones, our Microsoft Gold Partner-certified teams make the most of Azure’s extensive toolbox to help you manage business-critical software. That includes building, running, and managing applications with high-performance standards.

Google Cloud Platform

As a Google Cloud Partner, we leverage GCP’s global scale, extensive fiber network, and analytics to support the productivity of your cloud computing solutions wherever your business operates. Google Cloud’s suite of computing services and data management infused with AI is a crucial asset for any modern company.

Heroku

Heroku is a multi-language platform-as-a-service (and a Vention favorite as a Heroku Partner) to build, run, and operate apps contained entirely in the cloud. Their platform accelerates app development and provides a ready-to-use environment for quick code deployment, ideal for startups and medium-sized businesses.

Cloud deployment models for all sorts of challenges

Cloud software development services come in different shapes. Which specific one will suit your business depends on your business needs, security concerns, and compliance policies. But don’t worry: We’ll help you pick the best one for your case.

Public

Our cloud development team has years of hands-on experience designing accessible and user-friendly public cloud products. Services distributed across multiple data centers mean reduced overhead and extra flexibility.

 

Public clouds are best when:

  • Your workloads don’t involve overly sensitive data.
  • Sudden spikes in demand are expected, like in the holiday season.
  • Global reach is important, and a bit of extra latency is tolerable.

 

Hybrid

We build hybrid cloud solutions that scale easily, prioritizing workload portability for legacy infrastructures across multiple environments. Hybrid clouds are cost-effective and utilize the strengths of different cloud types where they’re most strategic for your business.

 

Hybrid clouds are best when:

  • You want to ensure a sweet spot between flexibility and control.

  • Different parts of your infrastructure have widely variable workloads.

  • Your business’ nature requires robust disaster recovery strategies, with data and applications stored across multiple clouds.

Multi-cloud

Vention’s multi-cloud solutions pick the best features from each cloud vendor and structure them to perform with maximum reliability. The extra redundancy offered, coupled with lower costs, is a powerful asset when downtime is not an option.

 

Multi-clouds are best when

  • Your workload must be customized down to the smallest details.

  • Committing to a single cloud vendor would be counterproductive.

  • You want to keep your rising IT spending under check long-term.

Maximizing potential with our multi-cloud strategy

As a cloud application development company, we can help you determine how mixing and matching various cloud strategies can help your business become more agile and offer more services while improving security.

01

Why do companies choose a multi-cloud approach?

Mainly for the potential for cost-saving opportunities. As each cloud service provider has distinct pricing models and rates, a multi-cloud approach lets companies pick the most cost-effective services from each provider and optimize their spending.

Additionally, a multi-cloud strategy usually offers better risk management. The flexibility of a multi-cloud infrastructure mitigates vendor lock-in risks, provides leverage during price negotiations, and boosts your fail-safe redundancy in case one provider experiences unscheduled downtime.

02

How Vention can support your multi-cloud strategy

Our cloud development company proficiency across cloud service providers and deployment models, in both consulting and implementation, lets us draw the best from each possible approach. We can:

  • Help define your specific objectives, emphasizing the advantages such as cost savings, risk management, flexibility, and mitigation of vendor lock-in risks.

  • Assess your business requirements, guiding your company in selecting cloud providers that align with your needs.

  • Develop a risk management plan to address security, compliance, and potential service outages.

  • Leverage our industry knowledge during vendor selection, negotiation, and ongoing optimization for favorable terms and continuous improvement.

  • Train your IT teams, empowering them to proficiently manage resources across multiple cloud platforms.

Cloud computing service models we support

Software-as-a-service (SaaS)

Operating on a subscription model, SaaS providers maintain the application centrally, allowing all customers to share the same code base and infrastructure. This centralized management facilitates easy updates and feature rollouts. SaaS focuses on delivering fully developed software applications to end-users.

We offer SaaS development services that simplify the creation of accessible and functional cloud software products. Our expertise ensures easy deployment, robust data integration, high-level security, and sweat-free scalability. We cover the entire development lifecycle, from SaaS architecture design to unit testing, integration, and debugging.

Platform-as-a-service (PaaS)

In PaaS, consumers receive a complete cloud platform, encompassing the software and infrastructure, to develop, manage, and run applications. The cloud service provider hosts everything, offering flexible pricing options such as “pay-as-you-go” based on resource usage or fixed pricing for a set number of users or resources.

Vention's PaaS development ensures unparalleled mobility in the cloud. We support and maintain development environments through various tools, offering prebuilt application components and simplifying tasks like database migration and data integration. Plus, we keep a watchful eye on every aspect of your platform’s regular maintenance so you and your teams can work (and rest) with complete peace of mind.

Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS)

IaaS allows outsourcing of the underlying infrastructure, eliminating the need for on-site hardware. This flexibility enables quick resource adjustments based on evolving needs. Those can be storage, servers, virtual machines, and networking, all based on and supported by off-site crews.

Our experts can leverage IaaS models to deploy private, public, or hybrid cloud infrastructures. Our IaaS services also provide flexible, pay-as-you-go access to cloud storage, networking, and servers — with a special focus on creating virtual machines, tailoring components, and optimizing resource pooling so that no byte goes to waste.
