HPE Leads Cloud Infrastructure Market In Q4 of Fiscal Year 2015

According to the Synergy Research Group’s Q4 data, HPE and Cisco maintained a very close competition in the cloud infrastructure market.

Cloud infrastructure share  The report of SRG said that HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) upholds its control of the growing cloud infrastructure equipment market, though Cisco lessened the gap. Dell and Microsoft also showed solid competition for third place in the market. Synergy stated that all four top vendors saw chronological market share turn down as IBM benefitted from its strong year-end and ODMs continued to take away business from more traditional vendors.

Among the different kinds of cloud deployment, Cisco continues to grasp the lead in public cloud infrastructure while HP leads in the private cloud.

“There continues to be a particularly impressive growth in the public cloud infrastructure market as AWS and other cloud operators are having tremendous success in attracting enterprises to their ever-expanding range of service offerings,” said Jeremy Duke, Synergy Research Group’s founder and Chief Analyst. “But enterprises too are buying ever-larger volumes of infrastructure to support their private or hybrid cloud deployments. Across the board there is a massive swing away from enterprises running workloads over more traditional and inflexible IT infrastructure.”

Additionally, the research said HPE has an obvious lead in the cloud server sector and is a main competitor in storage, while Cisco is leading in the networking sector and also has a speedily rising server product line. Microsoft features a lot in the place due to its place in server OS and virtualization applications, while Dell and IBM uphold a tough position across a variety of cloud technology markets.

Servers, OS, storage, networking and virtualization software combined accounted for 95 percent of the Q4 cloud infrastructure market, with the balance comprising cloud security and cloud management.

In the October previous year, IDC had said total expenditure on cloud IT infrastructure will increase at a mix yearly growth rate of 15.1 percent and will attain $53.1 billion by 2019 accounting for 46 percent of the total expenditure on enterprise IT infrastructure.

Whereas hardware and software to make cloud services revenues go beyond $60 billion, other areas of the industry established stronger expansion. Public IaaS/PaaS services had the highest growth rate at 51%, followed by private & hybrid cloud infrastructure services at 45%.

As HPE and Cisco stay dominant in the server and networking segments, both organizations have been offering a number of innovative products in the current months to expand their services.

Verizon Announces the Discontinuation of Its Public Cloud Service

An official Email has been sent to the Verizon Customers to notify them about the upcoming changes to the Verizon Cloud Services that include shutting down of its public cloud.

Verizon  Verizon Communications has given out notices to its clients that it will drag the plug off, of its public cloud offering. In the email to Verizon Cloud clients, as posted by Kenn White on Twitter, consumers of Verizon’s Public Cloud and Reserved Performance Cloud Spaces services should have to formulate other plans by April 12, when the virtual servers will be switched off. Customers of the Verizon Virtual Private Cloud and Verizon Cloud Storage will not be exaggerated by the move, while the Cloud Marketplace store, which was launched in the huge display in 2014, will also close.

“Verizon will discontinue its Public Cloud, Reserved Performance, and MarketPlace services on April 12, 2016. As an alternative, Verizon offers Virtual Private cloud (VPC), which provides the cost effectiveness of a multi-tenant public cloud, but includes added levels of configuration, control” according to the email.

Virtual Private Cloud is that other service that Verizon be going to carry on, offering to the business market and it was said by the company that it is making major investments in the business cloud platform in 2016.

Further, it was informed in the email that “On April 12, 2016, Verizon will shut down any virtual servers running on Public Cloud or Reserved performance Cloud Spaces. Please take steps now to plan for migration to VPC or another alternative before the discontinuation date. Verizon will retain no content or data remaining on these Cloud Spaces after that date and any content or data that you do not transfer prior to discontinuation will be irrecoverably deleted.”

It is also a possibility that the Verizon will start working with Google to accommodate the extremely increasing requirements for hybrid cloud systems among business clients, with a Verizon branded hybrid service running on Google’s public cloud an option. This option would preclude the requirement for Verizon having its own public cloud service. Still, none of the both companies has inveterate or deprived of the assumption about their suspected partnership.

It is a fact that the cloud market is growing aggressively and the giants of cloud providing industry have left behind the small enterprises that are struggling to satisfy their customers with their services.
