Hyperscale data center operators – such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft -- accounted for 33 percent of all spending on data enter hardware and software in the first three quarters of 2019, up from 26 percent in 2017 and an increase from 15 percent in 2015, according to Synergy Research Group. The pace of spending on hyperscale data centers isn’t expected to slow down in 2020.

Over half of the servers now being sold are going into cloud providers’ data centers, according to Synergy, and not in enterprises data centers.

“Over the last ten years we have seen a remarkable transformation in the IT market. Enterprises are now spending almost $200 billion per year on buying or accessing data center facilities, but cloud providers have become the main beneficiaries of that spending,” said John Dinsdale, a chief analyst at Synergy.

Hyperscale data centers have been growing at a historic rate over the past six years, with the number of hyperscale data centers tripling since 2013, led by Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft. At the end of third the third quarter of 2019, a whopping 504 of these large data centers were being operated with more than 150 new hyperscale centers on the way.
