Cloud computing is a transformation in the IT industry changing the nature of the competition within the computer industry. Organizations, such as Cisco Systems, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and IBM, believe that the cloud will be controlling the IT resources as well as helping in reducing TCO. Cloud computing revolutionizes the way IT resources are being deployed, configured, and managed. With the increase in the use of cloud computing, storage environment has also changed. There are several converging trends such as an increase in number of users, IT consumerization, and more data and devices pushing the storage environment to a new level. These technologies are not only driving the cloud market, but also pushing the use of technologies that will support cloud computing.
Cloud data center is a repository, which can be either physical or virtual used for management, storage, and transmission of data. It requires minimal maintenance cost when compared to the servers. They have their own power supply in case of electricity failure. They are cost-effective and require less resource, thereby attracting end-users to use cloud deployment rather than servers.
According to Infoholic Research, the Cloud Data Center market is expected to reach $67.5 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of around 28.7% during the forecast period. Businesses are reassessing their data centres and locating to different places. They are trying to use emerging technologies to build dynamic, scalable next-generation data center that will response to changing business needs without increasing the cost and overspending on service levels. Moreover, there is growing demand from North American companies as the cloud technology will help in storing data and information cost-effectively, increasing the efficiency, agility, and flexibility of the data center.
Software is the major boosting factor for the cloud data centers market. The major technology providers have joined hands with the cloud and third-party providers to offer innovative data center solutions, which enable the end-users to store their data on the cloud with better security features. The software market is further segmented into storage, server, and networking. In 2017, cloud storage had a major share of the market and is expected to reach $22.99 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 27.6% during the forecast period 2017–2023.
