The global web-scale IT market is anticipated to witness considerable progress over the forecast period on account of the ever-increasing broadband customer base. Rising social media usage and awareness is expected to be the key factor driving the market growth. In order to gain a competitive edge, key market players focus on providing scalability, high capacity, and reliable web-scale IT solutions. Next-generation network services such as 4G, enable operators to gain an advantage over other vendors. Hyper-converged organization solutions fabricated on web-scale principles are transforming the enterprise datacenter by sending radically simple, efficient, physical, cloud, and virtual environments.
Increasing complex application necessities and amount of data are estimated to significantly drive the web-scale IT market growth over the next few years. The demand for digitalization in enterprises coupled with mobility in the workplace tends to favorably impact the web-scale IT market growth. The market comprises large cloud services organizations that enable achieving extreme levels of service delivery as compared to their competitors. These technologies are expected to be strategic for most organizations over the coming years as it is expected to affect their long-term plans, programs, and initiatives. Technological developments in the field of e-commerce may lead to secondary markets and online re-sale forms a substantial part of the commerce space.

A web-scale IT system includes a system-defined architecture pattern that allows quick, scalable & flexible development, and distribution of web-based IT services leveraging flexible, optimal, and continuous principles. Elements of web-scale IT include velocity-focused processes, web-oriented architectures, programmable management, collaborative organization style, industrially designed data centers, and innovation-centric & knowledge culture. Web-scale IT enables organizations shift from traditional scale-up architectures to scale-out architectures that leverage open-source hardware & software coupled at a low-cost. This delivers benefits in terms of scalability, resiliency, flexibility, and low ownership cost owing to less maintenance.
Web-scale data centers are software-defined as a number of innovative ideas generated by service providers and IT vendors that are implemented using cloud technology. Companies in the web-scale IT market design their versions of solutions using complex operating systems and sophisticated technology on account of efficient and high-speed connectivity. In addition, the Wide Area Network (WAN) services rely on web-scale infrastructure owing to economies of scale-out storage infrastructure.
Key factors driving the web-scale IT market include wireless communication, strict government mandates, rapid adoption of cloud-based services, and growing cybercrimes in public utility industries. Henceforth, the approval for cybersecurity solutions is swelling to combat the sophisticated and advanced threats created by professional opponents. Further, cloud service verticals and providers such as energy, education, and oil & gas are anticipated to adopt solutions for cybersecurity more voluntarily owing to growing cybercrimes which may result in the loss of financial and intellectual assets.
Web-scale IT demands less focus on frameworks such as ITIL and more on lean and agile models. These models benefit smaller companies against large-scale organizations and hence are estimated to witness high growth over the forecast period. Web-scale IT enables practices of large web innovators into every business through components including open source software, commodity hardware, hybrid cloud, and web-oriented architecture. The availability of capacity and performance management skills for horizontally scaled architectures is further expected to hinder the web-scale IT market growth over the coming years.
The U.S. is expected to exhibit high growth over the forecast period closely followed by Asia Pacific, which is expected to have the highest number of new cell site deployment over the next six years. Asia Pacific along with Europe is projected to have a significant market share on account of a high level of service quality. Key web-scale IT market participants include Rackspace, Google, Netflix, Facebook, and Amazon. Other vendors such as CSC, Cisco, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Booz Allen Hamilton, Northrop Grumman, Sophos, Symantec, and McAfee are projected to offer innovative cyber solutions at reasonable prices by merging the portfolios counter to bundled attacks.

In contrast to its related industries like consumer electronics and semiconductors, the data center and communications infrastructure industry is expected to be more buoyant with continued strategic investments made to support the increased network traffic and data usage for remote working during the lockdown phase. From school closures necessitating students to use virtual offerings (Google Classroom ) to the governments using business analytics services (Power BI) for communicating virus updates, the demand for communication services and related infrastructure has witnessed an unprecedented rise amidst the global pandemic. Digital services including telemedicine are expected to remain popular even after the pandemic is contained, thereby ensuring strong growth in the communication infrastructure industry. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
