According to a forecast from the IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Cloud IT Infrastructure Tracker, total spending on IT infrastructure products (server, enterprise storage, and Ethernet switches) for deployment in cloud environments is expected to total $52.3 billion in 2018 with Y/Y growth of 10.9%.
IDC defines compute platforms as compute intensive servers. Storage platforms includes storage intensive servers as well as external storage and storage expansion (JBOD) systems. Storage intensive servers are defined based on high storage media density. Servers with low storage density are defined as compute intensive systems. Storage platforms does not include internal storage media from compute intensive servers. There is no overlap in revenue between compute platforms and storage platforms, in contrast with Server Tracker and Enterprise Storage Systems Tracker, which include overlaps in portions of revenue associated with server-based storage.
