Cloud Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – The global market for cloud equipment is forecast to witness growth driven by the omnipresent trend of cloud-enabled enterprise transformation. Networking ranks as the fastest growing product segment in the market. Growth in the market is fuelled by growing deployment of new cloud infrastructure and upgrade of existing cloud architectures to meet increasing usage needs. The resulting network expansions are driving considerable demand for networking equipment used in cloud environments. Also, rapid adoption of cloud enabled disaster recovery as a service is exerting pressure on existing infrastructure, thereby driving networking infrastructure upgrades and increased consumption of networking equipment.

The growing need for server capacity is spurring demand for cloud ready servers which are equipped with several robust and carefully engineered hard disks, network cards, memory modules, and processors, to ensure compatibility with the cloud environment. The growing popularity of cloud computing services is driving demand for cloud storage equipment like data servers, storage servers. Public cloud service providers typically require robust storage equipment to offer uninterrupted and reliable services to customers. Also, enterprises implementing private clouds migrate most of their digital data onto private clouds deployed within the enterprise firewall, thus increasing the need for robust and high memory storage equipment for supporting large volumes of virtual data. A key trend in the market is the growing popularity of SDD drives over HDD drives in private cloud architectures. SSD systems are popular in the private cloud, where confidentiality and security of data are of paramount importance. HDD systems despite their lower performance will still continue to find favor for mass storage applications in public cloud, given the capacity and cost limitations of SSDs.

As stated by the new market research report on Cloud Equipment, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 10.0% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by the expanding enterprise sector, increase in the number of Internet data centers, and increase in cloud based IT deployments in developing markets such as China and India. Key factors driving up the number of new establishment of cloud datacenters include increased datacenter outsourcing, and surge in data volumes generated by enterprises. Demand for cloud equipment will especially benefit from the growing deployment of hosted style and collocation styled datacenters. The growing scale of data overload and the fact that managing “Big Data” is poised to emerge into the toughest IT challenge for companies in the upcoming years, bode well for growth in the cloud equipment market.
