Private cloud spending is increasing, not decreasing

Published on 11th October, 2018, 7:50 PM

Once again, IDC has thrown cold water on the notion that enterprises are looking to shut down their data centers, instead finding that they are looking to grow them.

The latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC) found revenue from sales of IT infrastructure equipment grew 48.4 percent year over year in the second quarter of 2018 to $15.4 billion.

Of that, private cloud spending reached $4.6 billion, an increase of 28.2 percent year over year. That's a significant increase, but not as great as the jump in spending on public cloud IT infrastructure, which  was $10.9 billion, a 58.9 percent year-over-year growth.

By end of the year, IDC projects public cloud spending will account for 68.2 percent of total IT equipment spending, growing at an annual rate of 36.9 percent. That’s not surprising, though, as Amazon, Microsoft, Google, etc., buy servers in the tens of thousands of units.

Private cloud spending is increasing, not decreasing

Once again, IDC has thrown cold water on the notion that enterprises are looking to shut down their data centers and instead are looking to grow them. And a new form of IT spending is taking place.

The latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC) found revenue from sales of IT infrastructure equipment grew 48.4 percent year over year in the second quarter of 2018 to $15.4 billion.

Quarterly spending on public cloud IT infrastructure was $10.9 billion in the second quarter of 2018, a 58.9 percent year-over-year growth, while private cloud spending reached $4.6 billion, an increase of 28.2 percent year over year.

By end of the year, IDC projects public cloud spending will account for 68.2 percent of total IT equipment spending, growing at an annual rate of 36.9 percent. That’s not surprising, though, as Amazon, Microsoft, Google, etc., buy servers in the tens of thousands of units.

Is there a white-box server in your data center’s future?

Published on 11th October, 2018, 11:00 AM

The stagnant server market has heated up over the last few years, due in no small part to the advent of “white box” server vendors grabbing an increasing share of the cloud business.

Enterprises have been reluctant to follow the lead of hyperscale data center vendors to off-brand server competitors, largely because of a lack of enterprise-grade service and maintenance options. But the economics are compelling.

“White box” is a reference to the off-brand PCs built by independent PC vendors, which used to dot the landscape and appeal to buyers who built their own PCs with a plain beige tower and no vendor label on the box. In the server market, “white box” refers to vendors that are not the big three: Dell EMC, HP Enterprise and Lenovo.
