For the full year 2014, cloud IT infrastructure spending totaled $26.4 billion, up 18.7 percent year-over-year from $22.3 billion; private cloud spending was just under $10.0 billion, up 20.7 percent year-over-year, while public cloud spending was $16.5 billion, up 17.5 percent year-over-year. For the five-year forecast period, IDC expects that cloud IT infrastructure spending will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14 percent; both public cloud and private cloud are expected to grow at the same CAGR. By 2019, IDC expects cloud IT infrastructure spending to be $52 billion, or 45 percent of total IT infrastructure spend; public cloud will represent about $32 billion of that amount, and private cloud will account for the remaining $20 billion. “The pace of adoption of cloud-based platforms will not abate for quite some time, resulting in cloud IT infrastructure expansion continuing to outpace the growth of the overall IT infrastructure market for the foreseeable future,” said Kuba Stolarski, research manager for server, virtualization, and workload research at IDC. “As the market evolves into deploying 3rd Platform solutions and developing next-gen software, organizations of all types and sizes will discover that traditional approaches to IT management will increasingly fall short of the simplicity, flexibility, and extensibility requirements that form the core of cloud solutions.” ]]>
