Economic recovery, ageing servers and the need to simplify IT infrastructure is driving demand for both public and private cloud computing.

Economic recovery, ageing servers and the need to simplify IT
infrastructure is driving demand for both public and private cloud
computing.

According to IDC, server revenue for public cloud computing
will grow from $582 million in 2009 to $718 million in 2014.

Server revenue for the much larger private cloud market will grow
from $7.3 billion to $11.8 billion in the same time period.

IDC’s Worldwide Enterprise Server Cloud Computing 2010-2014
Forecast also reported that:

* Public cloud computing has lower ASVs than an average x86-based
server
* Public cloud seems less likely to be broadly adopted than
private
* Public clouds will be less enterprise focused than private
clouds
* Almost half of respondents, 44%, are considering private
clouds

“Now is a great time for many IT organizations to begin seriously
considering this technology and employing public and private clouds
in order to simplify sprawling IT environments,” said Katherine
Broderick, research analyst, Enterprise Platforms and Datacenter
Trends.
