If anyone doubted that cloud computing was here to stay, they were strongly contradicted by a Forrester report titled “The Public Cloud Market Is Now in Hypergrowth: Sizing the Public Cloud Market”. The research giant predicted that the cloud computing industry would climb from $58 billion to potentially $191 billion. An eWeek.com article went so far as to say that half of all enterprises will be using hybrid cloud.

The general consensus is that demand is growing fast, and many LA colocation providers are doubling down to accommodate current and future clients.
