However, those service providers do not always capitalize on hosting as a potential source of revenue, or an anchor for other services RESEARCH, LLC

His research focuses in part on the adaptation of traditional hosting technologies and models to accommodate emerging needs. These include Web presence SaaS, the focus on web professionals and the channel market for cloud infrastructure. Liam has closely covered the hosting market for more than 10 years, giving him a front-row seat for many of the transformative trends that shaped the business, including the emergence of virtualization and cloud technologies, and the development of the hosting market s partner ecosystem. II

3 Key Findings platforms are closely tied to the evolution of application environments. was one of the first business workloads to shift from on-premises infrastructure to hosted environments, and more recently to SaaS. Today, is deployed across a mixture of all three; however, it is one of the key drivers of the SaaS model within the enterprise. Among enterprises surveyed in a custom Microsoft survey conducted by 451 Research, 54% of respondents identified as comprising a significant portion of application services spending with hosting and cloud providers during the next two years, second only to databases. The platform application market is top-heavy, led by a small number of very large vendors (such as Microsoft and Google). Unlike other software categories, the applications most widely used among enterprises are also popular among smaller businesses, and even individual users. Among Web and application hosting providers, inboxes are frequently treated as a commodity and a lowvalue resource that can be added to infrastructure offerings at a small cost to the service provider. As the platform vendors drive new infrastructure and cost models, new roles are emerging for the partners that help enterprises migrate workloads to the cloud and provide ongoing management. Lagging hosting providers have an opportunity to convert from a cost into a source of revenue. Internationally, the market is dominated by the same small group of software platforms, with some regional tendencies toward certain technologies, but no isolated regional players of note. For this reason, language support is a notable requirement of the software. III

4 Executive Summary Note: This report is part of a larger collection of research and reports focused on the application portion of the Web and application hosting market. Although reports such as this one may focus on specific categories of application, parts of this report (in particular Section 1) are broadly applicable to the business of hosting applications and the larger service provider market. Portions of this content may appear, with some editing, in other reports within the application hosting subcategory. INTRODUCTION Within the wide variety of application services that can potentially be delivered by Web and application hosting providers, is the most widely deployed across service providers, and the most widely consumed by customers. is broadly applicable and widely consumed across vertical markets and customer size categories from enterprise to small business. As a result, it is broadly representative of the shift in placement of workloads from on premises to service provider hosted application environments and vendor-hosted SaaS products. Because largely lends itself to multi-tenancy and benefits from being centralized off-site, it has also been an early driver of enterprises and other businesses toward cloud-based application services. For many hosting providers in the traditional infrastructure-focused hosting space, is considered a low-value add-on resource, and in some cases a cost of doing business. However, driven by the advance of platform technology, and the connection of a variety of additional services, is becoming a compelling revenue opportunity for a larger variety of service providers. This may include providing premium hosted services, reselling Office 365 or Google Apps, or both. METHODOLOGY This report provides a mostly qualitative look at an established segment within the application side of the Web and application hosting market. It is based on a range of primary research methods, including conversations with service providers, developers and end users, as well as participation at tradeshows related to the delivery of Internet infrastructure and applications. Briefings were conducted with platform vendors including Microsoft, Google and Zimbra; service providers including Intermedia and Ceryx; and supporting technology suppliers, including Odin (Ingram Micro), Ensim and BitTitan. Reports in this format provide snapshots of emerging markets in this case, a well-established market served largely by a fairly small group of well-established technology vendors, and a large group of channel partners. 451 Research is in the early stages of developing new research tools for producing more detailed and quantitative coverage of the and productivity application businesses.
