The global distributed cloud market size in terms of revenue was reasonably estimated at $4.4 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to rise to $11.2 billion by 2027, presenting a CAGR of 20.6% according to Markets and Markets1 research. While it’s still a fraction of the public cloud market size, distributed cloud is increasingly growing in popularity.
Even though the hype is relatively new, distributed cloud is actually an operational trend from the past, reemerging as new technologies reinvigorate a previously dormant model. It’s a re-imagined, better, more flexible version of the distributed systems from 50+ years ago. Distributed cloud has an impact on nearly every industry, fueling innovative use cases and creating a newly empowered edge primed to deliver transformative business value through new revenue streams or business models.

What you will hear
“…when we talk about the distributed cloud, we're talking about a cloud that exists in many places, many of which are focused on that user experience, in addition to the agility and availability, but have a sense of cohesion and coherency about them that the kind of multi cloud experience - when you did that before - simply did not have.” –Howard
“…we see distributed cloud enables organizations to process and analyze data closer to the source, resulting in reduced latency and improved real-time decision making.” –Sam
“Technology is at the tip of our fingers that processes data in real time can give us a lifesaving insight and make those decisions at the point in time and not wait until a much later stage.” –Sam
