Worldwide Enterprise Infrastructure Workloads Market Shares, 2021: Strong Growth in a Post-Pandemic Phase

Worldwide Enterprise Infrastructure Workloads Market Shares, 2021: Strong Growth in a Post-Pandemic Phase

This IDC study provides historical market share data (2020-2021) for the worldwide enterprise infrastructure (server and enterprise storage systems [ESS]) market for workloads. This historical data illustrates top enterprise infrastructure vendor shares overall and by workload category. IDC reported these vendor shares in terms of vendor revenue. This document is the first publication of the combined server and storage vendor shares for various enterprise workload categories; hence the competitive landscape is more aligned with positioning of server vendors due to the relative size of the server and ESS markets. Previously, IDC published two separate documents on vendor shares for the server workloads and enterprise storage systems workloads markets: Worldwide Server Infrastructure Market Shares, 2020: Workloads (IDC #US48118721, August 2021) and Worldwide External Enterprise Storage Systems Infrastructure Market Shares, 2020: Workloads (IDC #US48058121, July 2021)."2021 provided a glimpse of the workload trends that might persist into the post-pandemic world, most notably a strong growth in spend on data management. As external market pressure continues to influence IT spend and the supply chain and cloud spend continues to grow, it remains to be seen how the market may shift going into 2022 and which workloads will ultimately benefit," Max Pepper, senior research analyst, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies at IDC.
