The report suggested that, driven by policy driving force, industry transformation and acceleration and upgrade of cutting-edge technology, the cloud marketplace in China presents a huge market space, showing an overall market size of Chinese public cloud IaaS service in the second half year of 2018 of USD 2.69 billion, with a growth rate up to 88.4%. The data shows that latecomers, like JD Cloud, present a good performance by constantly consolidating their product research and development as well as business expansion.


New Trend and New Highlights Appear in Public Cloud Marketplace


There is a trend of accelerating upgrade and innovation in the product level in the cloud marketplace, raising higher requirements for manufacturers as well as sustainable input of research and development and new-generation infrastructure, such as high-performance computing, heterogeneous computing, container, no server, IoT platform, self-developed native, Hybrid Cloud, edge computing, etc.


As the wave of intelligence arrives, demands of enterprise users change. Strong integration of cloud and intelligence, integration based on cloud and capability to use of convenient AI service have become new force points of the public cloud service provider. In addition, the Proprietary Cloud and the Hybrid Cloud have become the normal state of development while government customers and medium- and small-size enterprises are having various demands. There is a high requirement for data asset management, complementing the advantages of diversified public cloud services.


With the gradual implementation of industrial exploration, the non-Internet industry begins its exploration of cloud services, and the upgrade of industrial Internet driven by technologies hosted by the cloud platform also offer a new opportunity to customers and cloud service providers in the industry.


IDC indicated that the public cloud market competition in the future will be no longer limited to competition between individual manufacturers but competition among several integrated ecosystems. As a result, the public cloud service providers shall not only strengthen the open innovation of products and deepen industry practices, but also emphasize the layout, channel and service systems as well as the ecology of layout to seek for maximization of ecological development pattern.


Strengthen Product R&D and Improve Ecosystem


JD Cloud was put into formal commercial use in 2016, a relatively latter time for entering the market. However, viewing from the product capacity, strategic layout, market performance and other aspects in the recent two years, it has become one of the cloud manufacturers making the fastest progress. Currently, JD Cloud can offer more than 190 self-developed cloud computing products and services and over 90 products jointly developed with its partners, upgrading and updating more than 10 newly released products or services each month.


Relying on the long-term business practices and technology accumulation of JD Group in cloud computing, big data, Internet of Things and mobile internet applications, JD Cloud realizes the upgrade from a trustworthy cloud service provider to a trustworthy cloud ecosystem, on the basis of "all-around" cloud computing service, covering full stack services of IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, full spectrum services from IDC business, cloud computing business to comprehensive business, and full services of public cloud, private cloud, Proprietary Cloud and Hybrid Cloud.
