Report: Private Cloud Revenue to Hit $69 Billion by 2018

The market for third-party hosted cloud computing environments will grow significantly in the coming years and reach $69 billion by 2018, says a new report from Technology Business Research (TBR). In 2014, the market value is forecast to top $41 billion.
