Key Growth Drivers

  • The CISCO Global Cloud Index estimated that in 2021, cloud data centers would have likely processed ~90% of all workloads and computing instances, and the remaining processed by traditional data centers. As the information and applications hosted by the cloud are evenly distributed across all the servers, which are connected to work as one. Therefore, if one server fails, no data is lost and downtime is avoided. The cloud also offers more storage space and server resources, including better computing power. This means your software and applications will perform faster.

Traditional IT systems are not so resilient and cannot guarantee a consistently high level of server performance. They have limited capacity and are susceptible to downtime, which can greatly hinder workplace productivity.

Estimated Share of Enterprise Workloads and computing tasks processed by data centre
  • The high cost of implementation may create problems for the NaaS service provider as vendors may find it challenging in maintain and protect technology.
  • Since the COVID-19 outbreak, businesses have adopted the remote working concept, which has considerably raised the need for cloud-based solutions.
