Amazon, Microsoft, Google account for 65% of global cloud spending

Amazon, Microsoft and Google accounted for 65 percent of the $53 billion in global cloud-service spending in the first quarter of 2022, The Wall Street Journal reported July 5. 

The cloud industry requires companies to make huge investments in servers and facilities that house them, meaning these tech giants' control of the cloud market is poised to grow, as their size makes them better at investing and attracting clients and more able to take advantage of economies of scale, executives and analysts told the Journal

Combined, Amazon, Google and Microsoft's revenue from cloud services grew more than 33 percent last year and is expected to grow close to 29 percent in 2022, according to analysts surveyed by FactSet. This comes as other tech sectors are staring at post-pandemic slowdowns while the demand for cloud services continues to stay strong. 

Boston-based Tufts Medicine, Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger and Sacramento, Calif.-based UC Davis Health have all recently made the switch to the cloud, each system choosing Amazon Web Services as its preferred cloud provider. 

The health systems said they chose the tech company as it has a great reputation for cloud migrations, a fastcloud system and the goal of reducing health disparities.
