The Australian enterprise infrastructure market is set to grow due to the hybrid cloud adoption as well as the infrastructure modernization trends, according to research conducted by IDC.
IDC’s outlook for the Australian server and storage market shows double-digit growth of 11.3% throughout 2021.
The analysts actually stated that 2020 was a year in which business disruptions managed to accelerate the enterprise IT infrastructure transformations in response to the unprecedented market dynamics.
These changes managed to drive the IT infrastructure growth, and IDC expects the enterprise spending on the servers and storage devices to continue to grow through 2023 in parallel with the public cloud consumption growth.
Keep in mind that many organizations had a cloud-first strategy, and as such, the public cloud uptake managed to become significant.
Furthermore, the market size for infrastructure, when it comes to both private cloud as well as traditional IT remains bigger than public cloud.
The IDC Asia Senior Research Manager for Enterprise Infrastructure and Data Center Research Cynthia Ho had the following to say:
The use of cloud centric digital infrastructures have helped enterprises meet the business and technology challenges of the pandemic and will continue to be the key pillar in an accelerating hybrid cloud adoption era, and Australian organisations have been at the forefront of regional cloud adoption and infrastructure transformation across all sectors.
Keep in mind that Australian enterprises are leveraging multiple cloud deployment models in order to optimize their IT infrastructure, according to the IDC Cloud Pulse 2020 survey. This ongoing migration of existing workloads from traditional IT to cloud-centric IT through enterprise customers is a key factor in the forecast infrastructure enterprise growth.
It is vital that technology vendors can fully support the long-term trends through assisting enterprises transition to a hybrid cloud environment through technology, services as well as skilled channels, said IDC.
