Cloud sales topped non-cloud infrastructure sales for the first time



The pandemic has led to a major shift in the way in which business and consumers use online services which is why the analyst firm IDC believes that the second quarter of this year marked a tipping point as cloud sales exceeded non-cloud infrastructure for the first time.

According to the firm’s Worldwide Quarterly Cloud IT Infrastructure Tracker, vendor revenue from sales of IT infrastructure products for cloud environments including servers, enterprise storage and Ethernet switches increased by 34.4 percent year over year during Q2. At the same time though, investments in traditional, non-cloud infrastructure declined by 8.7 percent year over year during the same period.
