In the last 18 months, 13 cloud computing companies have gone public and investors have been eating them up.

A few examples include WorkDay, ServiceNow, Rally Software, and Marketo.

Bessemer Venture Partners has created a brand new index that tracks the top 30 public cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies.

“With 30 large public companies collectively representing more than $100 billion in market capitalisation and $12.5 billion in estimated 2013 revenue, the cloud computing industry has officially come of age,” explains the keepers of Bessemer’s new index Byron Deeter and Kristina Shen in a blog post.
