Cloud equipment production volume show strong growing trend

According to IDC, the volume of the global cloud infrastructure market in the third quarter of 2018 increased by 47.2%. Analysts estimate that global sales of server equipment, network equipment and storage systems used to deploy cloud services amounted to $ 16.8 billion versus 11.4 billion a year earlier. Sales of hardware in the category of private clouds increased by 28.3%, reaching $ 4.7 billion, while sales in the category of public clouds increased by 56.1% to $ 12.1 billion.

The share of cloud equipment for the first time accounted for more than half (50.9%) of the total expenditures on IT infrastructure, while in Q3 in 2017, this indicator was measured at 43.6%. At the same time, the market for equipment for local IT infrastructures showed an increase of 14.8%. Since this market is going through a technological renewal cycle, which is expected to end this year, its growth will slow to 12.3%. By 2022, hardware purchases for local data centers will be 42.4% of total IT infrastructure costs, while in 2018 their volume was 52.6%.

Dell EMC remains the largest manufacturer of equipment for the organization of cloud services. Revenues of the combined company in this market reached $ 2.4 billion, which is 50.7% more than a year ago. Following behind, Hewlett Packard Enterprise ended the quarter with $ 1.6 billion in sales, up 14.2% from a year earlier. The top three closed Cisco with revenue of $ 1.1 billion and sales growth of 16.4%. ODM vendors selling equipment directly to data centers earned a total of $ 6.1 billion on cloud infrastructure. This is 34% more than the result of the same period in 2017.

Geographically, the highest rates of growth in sales of cloud technology in Q3. recorded in the countries of the Asia-Pacific region (excluding Japan) and China, 62.6 and 88.7%, respectively. In Japan, there was an increase of 48.2%, in the USA by 44.2%, in Canada by 43.4%.

According to IDC, Amazon has accounted for the lion's share of the increase in investment in cloud IT equipment. The largest hyper-scalable data center operators Google, Alibaba, Microsoft, Facebook, Apple, Baidu and Tencent continue to actively prepare to expand their computing power and continue to transfer their own infrastructure to the cloud.
