2021 Analysis of cloud provider market share, based on IaC developer interest.


tl;dr AWS is as big (duh) and still growing faster than others. CloudFormation is a huge competitive advantage for AWS but Terraform is leveling the playing field for Azure, Google, Oracle, DigitalOcean and Alibaba.

Couple interesting facts:

  • Although released at the roughly the same time, the Terraform AWS provider has 268M downloads; over 6x more than Terraform Azure (41M) and GCP (38M)
  • Looking at Google search trends, there was a huge drop off in interest (searches) for all cloud providers in the second half of last year and continuing into 2021.
