Worldwide Cloud Server Forecast, 2018–2022
This IDC study provides a worldwide forecast for spending and shipments for servers in cloud (across public and private clouds) versus traditional IT deployments. It 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 hardware IT segment (server, storage, and network) and within each region, refer to IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Cloud IT Infrastructure Tracker and Forecast.For a view of many of the cloud service providers whose infrastructure purchases are aggregated in this document, IDC's Cloud Infrastructure Index 2018, an IDC multiclient study, provides a named company list with each company's individual annual storage capacity deployment, server unit deployment, and total spend on compute and storage."Workload migration to cloud is a key aspect of organizations undergoing digital transformation. While high growth in cloud server spending is an indicator of the increasing role cloud plays in the digital transformation journey, it is also an indicator of organizational-level changes as IT continues to evolve from being a cost center to becoming a business partner, from a product into a service." — Kuba Stolarski, research director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies
