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