Worldwide Cloud IT Infrastructure Hardware Spending Forecast, 2019–2022

Worldwide Cloud IT Infrastructure Hardware Spending Forecast, 2019–2022

This IDC study provides an aggregated worldwide forecast for spending on cloud IT infrastructure hardware (compute, storage systems, and network infrastructure across public and private clouds as well as traditional IT environments) from 2018 to 2022. At the time of publication, actual estimates for 4Q18 and full year 2018 aren't yet available and should still be considered as forecast. This document also assesses the impact of cloud (public and hosted private) on the location (on-premises versus off-premises) and ownership of IT infrastructure in the next five years. For detailed information on spending for each segment (compute, 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."Cloud technology, infrastructure, and service provider supply chains have evolved over the years into a well-oiled machine. As traditional organizations undergo digital transformation, cloud continues to become the mainstream option for their workload deployment. The next phase of that cloud evolution will be defined by broader accessibility and usability of cloud technologies, which in turn will drive further growth in cloud IT infrastructure." — Kuba Stolarski, research director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies
