Public cloud fuelled bulk of datacentre infrastructure spend in 2018, research shows

The worldwide datacentre hardware and software market continued to go from strength to strength in 2018, fuelled by user demand for public cloud environments and higher-specification servers. Global spending in this market segment grew by 17% in 2018 to $150bn, according to Synergy Research Group’s annual datacentre hardware and software market tracker. The bulk of this growth can be attributed to the sales of public cloud-enabling datacentre hardware and software, with Synergy’s data showing a 30% year-on-year surge in spending in this area. Meanwhile, spending on datacentre hardware and software intended for use within private enterprise facilities grew more modestly at 13% in 2018, thanks to demand for private cloud deployments, which Synergy said helped offset a marginal decline in traditional, non-cloud infrastructures in this sector.
