5G Needs to Learn from the Cloud Giants


The cloud market is a mature domain in which giants Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, and many more are competing and complementing each other to provide for enterprise requirements. In many cases, these companies provide technology for the same domains enterprise 5G aims to target. In that regard, the cloud market is quite delineated in terms of offerings, which are divided into Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a- Service (SaaS). The IaaS market is dominated by a few cloud giants that offer storage and networking, among other services. Amazon EC2, Google Cloud Engine, and Rackspace are a few companies that developers and enterprises build their services on. The PaaS market is by far the most popular in terms of enterprise adoption and expected to rise. Companies like Amazon, Microsoft, and other specialized platform providers are the most popular choices. The last category, SaaS, offers much more specialized services. Dropbox, Google Apps, Salesforce, and Zoho apps are a few enterprise SaaS providers.
