IDC published the results of new quarterly research, “IDC Worldwide Integrated Infrastructure and Platforms Tracker – 2013Q2”. The report segments the market into Integrated Infrastructure (i.e., horizontal infrastructure solutions such as FlexPod and Vblock) and Integrated Platforms (workload stacks that include the application such as Oracle's Exadata). And the results rank FlexPod at #1 in Integrated Infrastructure Market Share.
About this Tracker Report
IDC published the Worldwide Integrated Infrastructure and Platforms Tracker for the second quarter of Calendar Year (CY) Q2 2013 with historic data starting in CY Q1 2012. Included in this quarterly IDC Tracker are vendor revenues and market shares for Integrated Infrastructure and Platforms solutions. The results we’re citing are those made publically available for the period CY Q2 2013. We see this report as significant: IDC is recognized as a leader in IT industry research, and this result is relevant for customers and their IT teams who are looking for non-subjective measures of the market acceptance of new products, and need to make significant investment decisions. Though this is a new tracker, we consider it to be strong validation of FlexPod leadership in the growing worldwide Integrated Infrastructure market.
Key Findings from the Report about FlexPod
- FlexPod is the worldwide market share leader within the Integrated Infrastructure segment based on revenue, per IDC
- The Integrated Infrastructure segment is relevant for enterprises and service providers who need a Shared IT platform vs. a single workload-centric system
We see this ranking as a result of our strategic decisions to deliver the most cost efficient solution on the market, and to maximize solution flexibility in terms of delivery, configuration, components, workloads, and management.
