HPE share in Cloud infrastructure is close to Dell in Q3 2016, says IDC

Cloud IT Infrastructure Vendor Revenue for Q3 2016
Technology vendor’s revenue from sales of infrastructure products — server, storage, and Ethernet switch — for cloud IT rose 8.1 percent to $8.4 billion in the third quarter of 2016, said IDC.

Ethernet switch is the growth leader, as the market awaits new hyperscale datacenter builds to spur additional growth.

The share of cloud IT infrastructure sales grew to 39.2 percent of all IT infrastructure spending in Q3 2016 against 34.7 percent a year ago.

Revenue from infrastructure sales to private cloud increased by 8.2 percent to $3.3 billion, and to public cloud by 8 percent to $5.1 billion. In comparison, revenue in the non-cloud IT infrastructure segment decreased 10.8 percent in the third quarter.

Growth of Ethernet switch in private cloud infrastructure was 60.8 percent, while storage achieved 9 percent, and server 3.2 percent growth.

Growth of Ethernet switch in public cloud was 46.2 percent, while server grew 6.8 percent and storage rose 3 percent. In non-Cloud IT deployments, server declined 12.9 percent, Ethernet switch fell 1.6 percent and storage declined 8.6 percent.

Upcoming hyperscale cloud datacenters will drive new server and storage deployments over the next few quarters.

“Recently, there has been renewed strength in emerging markets and among smaller cloud service providers. As OpenStack has become easier to implement and maintain by a growing population of capable system administrators, private cloud options are becoming more viable in an increasing set of use cases and with a wider set of deployment parameters,” said Kuba Stolarski, research director for Computing Platforms at IDC.

Technology vendor revenue from cloud IT infrastructure sales grew 36.7 percent in Middle East & Africa, Japan at 29.9 percent, Latin America at 21.7 percent, Western Europe at 16.8 percent, Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) at 11.9 percent, Canada at 5.3 percent, Central & Eastern Europe at 4.3 percent, and the United States at 2.9 percent.
