Cloud Computing Is Helping Drive Hardware Growth

Private cloud hardware spending will draw public cloud hardware spending, IDC predicts. IDC also forecasts that server hardware revenue for public cloud computing will grow from $582 million in 2009 to $718 million in 2014, and server hardware revenue for the larger private cloud market will grow from $2.6 billion to $5.7 billion in the same period.

There have been tons of surveys out there that show that enterprise companies are moving to cloud computing and are looking to move to private clouds first, which means many new boxes of servers are showing up in the lobby to build these private clouds. That said, I believe that some of these so-called private clouds are just relabeled traditional data center and won’t have many built-in cloud computing features beyond simple virtualization.  Since there is no standard in cloud computing, you can’t know if they are true cloud servers or not.

Another point to bring up is VC funding behind cloud computing has significantly gone up.  There isn’t a week that goes by that you don’t hear about a VC fund investing in the cloud computing arena. This causes a significant spike in the number of machines being purchased in the tech sector.  Cloud servers aren’t cheap either. Basically what I’m saying with this whole thing is cloud computing isn’t going anywhere, and cloud server costs aren’t going to go down, I only see them going up!
