In the present era of globalization, organisations are using data centres that can virtualize application workloads. Almost 50% of the data centres now are shifting to public clouds for their growing data storage need. Moreover, traditional servers are connected over a network architecture which is complex to scale and manage. Due to this, data centres are deploying technologies such as virtualization, social media, and big data.
Web Scale IT denotes a global infrastructure of computing architecture which yields all the benefits which are given by the large cloud service providers within an enterprise IT. Web Scale IT comprises a set of technologies for the entire IT system. It enables organization to have increased agility, scalability and improved capabilities.
The highly virtualized data centre requires a high-performance infrastructure which can scale up in response to increasing demand and keep the costs low at the same time. Thus, the system requires a dynamic data centre – Web Scale IT – that will deliver cloud capabilities for the large providers in the enterprises.
The Web-Scale IT market is expected to witness a CAGR of 21.1% during the forecast period 2016–2022.
The need to improve efficiency and lower costs, reducing complexities in handling the large amount of data and the growth of digital technologies will support the Web-Scale IT market.
Enhanced agility, scalability, reduced hardware costs, ubiquitous accessibility of enterprise data are factors driving market growth.
Web-scale technologies were first deployed by large companies such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon as they have a lot of data to handle and there was a need for a single and dynamic data centre.
The risk associated in migrating sensitive data from traditional to new cloud approaches limits the adoption of Web Scale IT in organizations.
