Cloud Computing Market to Reach $12.6 Billion in 2014 -IDC

Enterprise Cloud Server Hardware Offers Increased Efficiencies

The breaking dawn of economic recovery combined with an aging server installed base and IT managers' desire to rein in increasingly complex virtual and physical infrastructure is driving demand for both public and private cloud computing. According to new research from International Data Corporation (IDC), server revenue for public cloud computing will grow from $582 million in 2009 to $718 million in 2014. Server revenue for the much larger private cloud market will grow from $7.3 billion to $11.8 billion in the same time period.

The Secret Behind The Incredible Growth of Cloud Expo!

"Now is a great time for many IT organizations to begin seriously considering this technology and employing public and private clouds in order to simplify sprawling IT environments," said Katherine Broderick, research analyst, Enterprise Platforms and Datacenter Trends.

IDC defines the public cloud as being open to a largely unrestricted universe of potential users; designed for a market, not for a single enterprise. Private cloud deployment is designed for, and access restricted to, a single enterprise (or extended enterprise); an internal shared resource, not a commercial offering; IT organization as "vendor" of a shared/standard service to its users. "Many vendors are strategically advancing into the private and public cloud spaces, and these players are widely varied and have differing levels of commitment," Broderick added.

Additional findings from IDC's research include the following:

  • Public cloud computing has lower ASVs than an average x86-based server
  • Public cloud seems less likely to be broadly adopted than private
  • Public clouds will be less enterprise focused than private clouds
  • According to recent IDC survey results, almost half of respondents, 44%, are considering private clouds

The IDC study, Worldwide Enterprise Server Cloud Computing 2010-2014 Forecast (IDC #223118) presents market size and forecast information for server hardware infrastructure supporting public and private clouds from 2009 through 2014. This is IDC's first cloud forecast from the server hardware perspective and will be built upon in the future. This document presents the opportunity for servers in the cloud by customer revenue, units, CPU type, form factor, and workload.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
