Cloud Barometer, July 15, 2015

According International Data Corporation research results from the Worldwide Quarterly Cloud IT Infrastructure Tracker, vendor revenue from sales of infrastructure products: server, storage, and Ethernet switch for public and private cloud, grew by 25.1% year over year to nearly $6.3 billion in the first quarter of 2015 (1Q15).

Barometru 15 JulyFor the same period, Cloud IT infrastructure spending grew to 30%, comparing with 26.4% a year ago. Revenue from infrastructure sales for private cloud grew 24.4% year over year to $2.4 billion while sales for public cloud grew 25.5% to $3.9 billion.

Comparing, the Q1 increase of the non-cloud IT infrastructure segment was only 6.1%, largely driven by increased sales of servers while storage sales declined and sales of Ethernet switches grew just by 1%.

Interesting is vendor revenues from cloud IT infrastructure sales declined only in Central and Eastern Europe, where political and economic conjuncture impacts big infrastructure projects and overall IT spending.
