The 25 Most Valuable Cloud Computing Companies Are Worth Way More Than You'd Think

Box Aaron LevieBoxBox CEO Aaron Levie

With Box’s successful IPO last week, there are now 25 public companies in the cloud computing market worth more than $US1 billion, according to Bessemer Venture Partners’ Cloud Index.

And the market cap of the top 30 cloud tracked by the BVP Cloud index hit more than $US155 billion last week, too. (The index tracks 41 public companies.)

That’s grown by a lot. In 2013, when the index was new, the top 30 companies were worth about $US100 billion and only 15 of them were worth over $US1 billion.
