Digital Infrastructure Resiliency Drives Interest in New As-a-Service Cloud Operating Models
IDC's research demonstrates that enterprise organizations are prioritizing digital infrastructure resiliency as a foundational element of their ITstrategy.
These organizations are looking for richer levels of visibility, crossplatform control, advanced data management, and protection that spans the entire edge to core continuum, and cloud-based as-a-service (XaaS) models are a great way to achieve those insights.
IDC predicts by 2024, over 75% of infrastructure in edge locations will be consumed and/or operated via an as-a-service model, as will more than half of datacenter infrastructure. Pure Storage is continuing to shift its strategy to address this new environment and bring solutions to market that match customers'evolving demands. At a high level, Pure Storage offers customers an elastic infrastructure that resides within a secure on/off-premises environment and provides insights into public and private cloud workloads. Businesses are attracted to cloud service providers because of the pay-per-use model, the rapid provisioning and scalability of capacity, and the reduced life-cycle management of infrastructure. IDC observes that the adoption of as-a-service shifts customers to a cloud operating model that can fuel digital transformation.
