Dell, Microsoft Emerge Revenue Leaders in Data Center Infrastructure

Dell | June 15, 2020

Dell Technologies and Microsoft were the data center hardware and software infrastructure revenue leaders in the first quarter of 2020 as public cloud. However, the COVID-19 pandemic halted the steady growth trend over the past several quarters in hardware and software revenue, which caused the global data center infrastructure market . Dell was the leader in data center revenue in both server and storage revenue, while Cisco Systems was the dominant player in networking. Dell Technologies and Microsoft were the data center hardware and software infrastructure revenue leaders in the first quarter of 2020 as public cloud vendors continue to lead the data center spending charge. However, the COVID-19 pandemic halted the steady growth trend over the past several quarters in hardware and software revenue, which caused the global data center infrastructure market to drop 2 percent year over year to $35.8 billion in the first quarter of 2020, according to IT market research firm Synergy Research Group. Dell was the leader in data center revenue in both server and storage revenue, while Cisco Systems was the dominant player in networking. Microsoft was featured heavily in the quarter, specifically in the enterprise, thanks to its position in server OS and virtualization applications. The coronavirus pandemic did not have an impact on the big public cloud infrastructure spenders, such as Amazon Web Services and Google, which are spending billions each year on building, expanding and equipping hyperscale data centers to meet growing cloud services demand.

The top four winners in public cloud infrastructure revenue were Dell, Microsoft, Inspur and Cisco. Original design manufacturers (ODMs), which design and manufacture hardware that is later rebranded by other companies for sale, captured a large portion of data center public cloud revenue as well. John Dinsdale, a chief analyst at Synergy Research Group, said public cloud data center infrastructure revenue is being fueled by annual growth in various market segments. For example, he said cloud services revenue continues to annually grow by almost 40 percent, while enterprise Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) revenue is growing by 25 percent. Search and social networking revenue is increasing by over 15 percent annually, and e-commerce revenue is growing by around 20 percent. All of [this is[ helping to drive growth and increased spending on public cloud infrastructure. . Worldwide data center sales to enterprises and traditional service providers declined 4 percent year over year to approximately $22.5 billion in the first quarter of 2020. Notably, most of these services are either little impacted by COVID-19 or may be stimulated by changed enterprise and consumer behavior.” On the other hand, he said, many enterprises have been “negatively impacted by the pandemic, resulting in increased pressure on capital budgets and more impetus on shifting workloads to public cloud providers.” Worldwide data center sales to enterprises and traditional service providers declined 4 percent year over year to approximately $22.5 billion in the first quarter of 2020. The market leader in the enterprise space was Microsoft, followed by Dell, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Cisco and VMware. The main hardware segments of servers, storage and networking, in aggregate, accounted for 73 percent of the total $35.8 billion data center infrastructure market. Operating systems, virtualization software, cloud management and network security account for the balance, according to Synergy. The research firm said Inspur had the highest growth rate of any vendor in the market during the first quarter. While the need for more public cloud infrastructure grows, worldwide revenue in the data center hardware and software market declined to $35.8 billion in the first quarter of 2020 as COVID-19 impacted enterprises' data center spend.

Getting Your IT Infrastructure Ready for Edge Computing

Microsoft | May 18, 2020

IT Infrastructure innovations, edge computing began with engineers as a natural extension of technology to address a growing need . Software-defined deployment, decreasing cloud networking costs and more, including edge computing’s rough spots and the additional operations complexity it adds. It completely changed the architecture of the data center, the frameworks for security, and end-users’ expectations around data access and manipulation. Like many IT innovations, edge computing began with engineers as a natural extension of technology to address a growing need. The concept isn’t new; distributed computing has been around for decades. But, at the same time standards began to converge and edge hardware started making the rounds at trade shows, the hype machine saw an opportunity. It amplified edge’s considerable promise in reducing latency, offering software-defined deployment, decreasing cloud networking costs and more. But as is too often the case, the bold feature bullets ignored the production concerns businesses must address, including edge computing’s rough spots and the additional operations complexity it adds. Of course, edge computing will survive a little overexcited promotion, just like many of the once improbable technologies before it. People used to say, “What? Abstract all my data center applications away from the hardware as virtual servers? Impossible!” A decade later, we can’t imagine how we’d deliver traditional enterprise services, cloud computing, online retail, media streaming and everything else in between without exactly this. Virtualization survived its awkward hype adolescence, and edge computing will, too. The needs edge computing addresses are only growing. Learn more: HOW DISTRIBUTED CLOUD WILL AFFECT DATA CENTER INFRASTRUCTURES IN 2020 AND BEYOND . “ It completely changed the architecture of the data center, the frameworks for security, and end-users’ expectations around data access and manipulation ". ~ Microsoft. Thanks to engineers and operations teams, the edge distributed model is moving toward practical use. It’s proving itself capable of meeting requirements for new levels of network performance through reduced latency, scalability and, more importantly, manageability. For some businesses, it’s even reducing costs over the long haul. With the proliferation of connected devices and a growing focus on 5G-enabled technology, tech pros should set aside their natural reluctance to wade through the edge hype and consider it a genuine possibility. “ Edge computing is much the same, High-latency, poor application performance, low bandwidth – these are simply unacceptable to end-users today,With expectations set, IT will need to deliver this to users across the business. “ Its adoption is following the rise of emerging technologies and the applications taking best advantage of it: 5G, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, IoT and smart manufacturing. These environments require not only low upstream latency, but high-performance compute and timely result data. Light only travels so fast, pushing infrastructure closer and closer to consumers for faster, more seamless processing in the form of brand-differentiating user experiences. The rise of cloud computing and the efficiency of large, remotely located data centers requires a new compute model. To lower latency and raise capacity, edge computing will augment the data center to bring compute and storage much closer to the user. Edge computing is the epitome of agility. While traditional data centers are strategic, large multi-story facilities that support thousands of applications, edge data centers – which could be a ½ rack in a cabinet – can go anywhere and meet more specific, if smaller demands. It is not an either-or, though. We used the word “augment” purposefully. Edge computing provides an add-on capability that will modernize the traditional data center as the digital transformation sweeping the globe makes new demands that deliver performance and experience to end-users. Broadly speaking, edge computing moves some computational needs away from the centralized data center to nodes at the edge of the network, improving application performance and decreasing bandwidth requirements. In fact, a recent report showed potential improved latency and data transfer reduction to the cloud of up to.
