Worldwide Cloud IT Infrastructure Hardware Spending Forecast, 2016–2020

Worldwide Cloud IT Infrastructure Hardware Spending Forecast, 2016–2020

This IDC study provides an aggregated worldwide forecast for spending on cloud IT infrastructure hardware (server, storage systems, and network devices across public and private clouds as well as traditional IT environments). It also assesses the impact of cloud (public and hosted private) on the location (on-premise versus off-premise) and ownership of IT Infrastructure in the next five years. For detailed information on spending for each segment (server, storage, and network) and within each region, refer to IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Cloud IT Infrastructure Tracker and Forecast data set with double counting of storage for internal server storage removed."For organizations undertaking digital transformation at the business level, cloud isn't just about picking among a specific set of product or service delivery models such a public, private, or hybrid cloud. They are completing the shift to a predominantly cloud-based IT environment in the next few years." — Richard Villars, vice president, Datacenter and Cloud
