Worldwide Integrated Infrastructure and Platforms Revenue Increases 38.5% Year Over Year in the First Quarter of 2014, Surpassing $1.9 Billion in Value, According to IDC

According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Integrated Infrastructure and Platforms Tracker, the worldwide integrated infrastructure and platforms market increased revenue 38.5% year over year to $1.95 billion during the first quarter of 2014 (1Q14). The market generated 653.8 petabytes of new storage capacity shipments during the quarter, which was up 72.3% compared to the same period a year ago.

"As the market moves to the 3rd Platform, IT customers are seeking to leverage cloud, social, mobile, and big data in their businesses. Transforming an IT environment requires a new approach to systems," said Jed Scaramella, Research Director, Enterprise Servers. "Many customers see the convergence of server, storage, and networking in Integrated Systems as a means to deliver IT efficiency and agility. IDC expects to see more workload-optimized systems come to market in the near term."

"Once again we witnessed an increasing number of organizations around the world leveraging integrated systems to address longstanding datacenter infrastructure inefficiencies," said Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Storage. "As such, this market remains one of the fastest growing segments of the overall infrastructure market."

Integrated Platforms vs. Integrated Infrastructure

IDC distinguishes between two market segments: Integrated Platforms and Integrated Infrastructure. Integrated Platforms are integrated systems that are sold with additional pre-integrated packaged software and customized system engineering optimized to enable such functions as application development software, databases, testing, and integration tools. Integrated Infrastructure systems are designed for general purpose, distributed workloads that are likely to have differing performance profiles. While integrated infrastructure is similar to integrated platforms in that it will leverage the same infrastructure building blocks, it is not optimized for a specific workload.

During the first quarter of 2014, the Integrated Platforms market generated revenues of $769.6 million, which represented an 8.3% year-over-year growth rate and 39.5% of the total market value. Oracle was the largest supplier of Integrated Platform systems with $369.0 million in sales, or 48.0% share of the market segment.

Taxonomy Notes:

IDC defines integrated infrastructure and platforms as pre-integrated, vendor-certified systems containing server hardware, disk storage systems, networking equipment, and basic element/systems management software. Systems not sold with all four of these components are not counted within this tracker. Specific to management software, IDC includes embedded or integrated management and control software optimized for the auto discovery, provisioning, and pooling of physical and virtual compute, storage, and networking resources shipped as part of the core, standard integrated system.
