Benefits of Operator-Owned and Managed InfrastructureIn 2021, half of the spending on server and storage infrastructure was driven by on-premises deployments according to IDC.
These investments will continue to grow in the next five years at a compound annual growth rate of 2.9% and will reach $77.5 billion in 2026. This flexibility is indicated by workload repatriation activity, a process of moving workloads from public cloud into dedicated on-premises and off-premises environments. IDC observes this activity since the public cloud became a mainstream option for running IT operations, and it's not slowing down over time. In an IDC survey, 71% of respondents expected to move, partially or fully, their workloads currently running in public cloud into a dedicated IT environment in the next two years.
