REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – July 11, 2016 – According to a recently published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, by 2017 half of all server units will ship to the Cloud as macro-economic uncertainty and Brexit are set to accelerate cloud adoption.

“Cloud data centers have been around for more than half a decade. We’ve noticed some key changes in the last couple of years which are leading us to believe that the momentum to the Cloud is accelerating. The diversity of Cloud offerings is increasing and barriers for Cloud adoption are being removed. Concurrently, the rising number of connected devices will create more data that needs to be processed, which we expect to happen in Cloud data centers,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Director at Dell’Oro Group. “Additionally, we believe that macro-economic uncertainty and looming headwinds following Britain’s exit from the European Union will accelerate workload migration to the Cloud as enterprises will likely favor a consumption-oriented usage model of OPEX to satisfy additional needs for IT equipment and resources,” continued Boujelbene.

The report also looks at multiple types of Cloud data centers, including how the architecture differs, and how the equipment supplier selection differs.
