Webinar: Managed Security Services: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

We’re past the point of product pushing – that’s actually part of the problem. Selling through the fear, ‘tyranny of the urgent’, or one-off point solutions may close some deals, but it likely won’t turn one-time customers into lasting business relationships. Companies today are looking for well thought out, managed solutions, which will help them minimize cyberattack risks and stay compliant with industry and federal regulations. The question now is, are services that fill those needs worth offering for your organization? Join Dan Thompson and Aaron Sherrill on November 2nd for a live, interactive webinar. Reserve your spot below!

Equinix continues to be a leader in the multi-tenant datacenter (MTDC) market accounting for 9.8% of total global MTDC revenue as of Q2 2017, up from 8.9% share in Q1 2017 and from 7.7% share in Q2 2016. The company’s colocation revenue has been fueled by portfolio acquisitions in the past few years, including Bit-Isle, Telecity and the Verizon datacenters acquisition. The company is expected to see further growth when the acquisition of five Itconic datacenters completes later this year. Digital Realty is second in terms of global MTDC revenue and its market share will increase once the acquisition of DuPont Fabros is completed later this year. Despite the waves of consolidation in the sector, however, there remains a long tail of MTDC providers of various sizes. 451 Research tracks over 1,200 providers worldwide in the Datacenter KnowledgeBase.

By 2019, 60% of IT workloads will run in the cloud

2017 08 27 COTW-01


Our enterprise survey research shows a clear trend toward cloud-based workload deployment (on-premises private cloud, hosted private cloud, IaaS and SaaS), rising from 45% today to 60% by 2019. At the same time, organizations anticipate that a slim majority of enterprise workloads will run in off-premises IT environments by 2019, and more than one-third of all workloads will operate in public cloud environments.

Although workload distribution across deployment venues is edging toward cloud environments, our research shows that overall spending on in-house infrastructure and resources is holding steady. Enterprise IT environments will evolve over the next few years as organizations shift and modernize existing workloads and develop net new applications built for – and in – the cloud. This transition offers IT service providers and technology vendors the opportunity to position themselves as strategic partners and trusted advisors to organizations looking to implement 'right mix' workload placement strategies, develop dynamic workload optimization approaches and tap into third-party infrastructure/application management for evolving IT environments.

Our VotE: Cloud Transformation, Workloads and Key Projects survey, conducted in March and April 2017, includes more than 700 completed surveys from IT decision-makers about cloud adoption, application workloads and technologies.
