- In terms of deployment, the public cloud segment held the largest revenue share of USD 10.22 billion in 2021 and is projected to maintain its position during the forecast period. As a user of the public cloud, organizations are not in charge of administering cloud hosting services. The management and upkeep of the data center where data is stored fall under the purview of the cloud service provider.
- This entails eliminating protracted procurement procedures and waiting for operations to set up servers, set up operating systems, and create connectivity. The public cloud also reduces expenditure because businesses only pay for the resources they use, thus cutting down on wasteful expenditure on idle resources.

- The large enterprises segment dominated the market with a share of 68.1% in 2021. The small & medium enterprises segment is likely to register the highest CAGR of 24.0% during the forecast timeline.
