Analyst firm Technology Business Research estimates annual revenue for the top public cloud companies in 2012 across infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) markets. As you can see here, only Salesforce.com, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft are believed to have crossed the $1 billion mark for annual cloud revenue. Providers like IBM, HP, Citrix and AT&T still have a ways to go.
