Enterprises Change Their Data Center Strategy

Enterprises are adopting colocation and managed hosting services as opposed to running or buying a data center of their own.

For the first time ever, enterprises are now spending more money annually on cloud infrastructure services than on data center hardware and software, according to new data from Synergy Research Group. From 2009 to 2019, annual spending on cloud infrastructure services has gone from virtually zero to almost $100 billion, growing 56 percent annually. During the same 10-year time period, enterprise annual spending on data center hardware and software grew only 4 percent on average.

As enterprises pivot away from owning their own data center, colocation providers and cloud infrastructure service providers are architecting solutions to optimize hybrid deployments. Enterprises are also moving to a decentralized infrastructure that accommodates distributed workflows from multi-cloud to edge as businesses need to be closer to their points of data.
