RightScale announced that cloud computing usage has  increased by over 1,000 percent in one year, from June, 2009 to June, 2010. This increase in cloud server usage reflects three trends:

  1. overall increase in the number of cloud servers in use by RightScale customers,
  2. cloud servers running for longer periods of time,
  3. customers using larger servers.

These changes are indicative of the growing use of cloud computing for production applications. Further underscoring industry momentum, RightScale also reports a significant increase in enterprise customers.  RightScale cloud hosting has seen a huge increase in the past year and is expected to double if not triple the amount of cloud servers in the next year with all the enterprise cloud hosting customers migrating over.

“We are amazed to see how much has changed in the past year, both in terms of the overall amount of cloud computing as well as the applications being deployed,” said Thorsten von Eicken, RightScale CTO. “For example, our customers’ average server runtime has increased 146 percent, and the number of servers running full time has increased 310 percent, which are indications of not only more production applications, but also increasing cloud stability. Our customers are also launching more powerful servers in support of more users, increasing amounts of data, and additional services offered.

RightScale has now launched over 1.3 million servers in the cloud, and we are in a unique position to track customer behavior as a reflection of market trends,” von Eicken continued. “While the cloud market is still in its infancy, we believe the dramatic changes we’ve seen in the past year among our customers are strong indicators of technology maturation and increasing market momentum.”
