Description

As cloud-driven computing concepts continue to trickle into the enterprise market, competition will increase among hyperscale server vendors. TBR estimates a $1.7 billion U.S. addressable market in the next 12 months for hyperscale servers among organizations with 500 or more employees. According to TBR research, nearly one-third of current hyperscale server enterprise adopters are replacing traditional server hardware with hyperscale servers, according to TBR research.

TBR’s Computing research team invites you to view a webinar that originally aired on Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014, and provided a guided recap and analysis of hyperscale server trends noted in the Hyperscale Server Landscape Report.

Senior Analyst Christian Perry shared his perspective on results from TBR’s latest report and provided webinar attendees with additional insights into vendor performance and the future of the data center market. He then fielded questions from the audience related to this research.

Discussion questions will included:

• What is the U.S. market opportunity for hyperscale servers?
• How are vendors differentiating their hyperscale server portfolios to appeal to enterprise and cloud customers?
• Which workloads drive enterprise adoption of hyperscale servers? Which workloads will drive future adoption?

TBR TBR Quarterly Webinar Series | 9.30.14 | www.tbri.com | ©2014 Technology Business Research Inc. TBR Position Competition will quickly rise in this market as cloud-driven computing concepts trickle into the enterprise market. TBR estimates a $1.7 billion U.S. addressable market in the next 12 months for hyperscale servers among organizations with 500 or more employees. Hyperscale server vendors will follow the influence of cloud into enterprise data centers to tap a $1.7B U.S. market The Situation The advent of cloud computing continues to shape the market for IT infrastructure. As customers gain more experience with public cloud offerings such as IaaS, they increasingly seek similar cloudlike benefits in their environments. The Change Customers running cloud — and other — workloads are beginning to replace a portion of their traditional servers with hyperscale variants that are more power-efficient and easier to manage at scale. Just as organizations deploy private clouds to obtain an on-premises cloud experience, data centers are deploying hyperscale servers to obtain a cloud experience on the hardware end via easily added and managed capacity at potentially lower cost. Cloud Enterprise 4 Hyperscale Servers Ride Cloud Momentum

TBR TBR Quarterly Webinar Series | 9.30.14 | www.tbri.com | ©2014 Technology Business Research Inc. Cloud workloads are sparking an IT infrastructure transformation as data centers look to cut costs across large server deployments Today’s data centers increasingly run cloud-driven workloads. Cloud data centers recognize traditional bulky, power-hungry server architecture is not cost-efficient. Hyperscale server vendors deliver infrastructure that is simple to manage, easy to scale and efficient from power and cost perspectives. This drives sales of hyperscale server infrastructure into cloud data centers and enterprise data centers looking to cut physical infrastructure costs and reduce complexity.

Enterprise customers are seeking highly scalable server architecture and prompting server OEMs to adjust their business models to meet demand Enterprise customers are changing the early hyperscale landscape and creating opportunity for server OEMs outside of the cloud service provider market. HYPERSCALE SERVER ECOSYSTEM SCALE SIMPLICITY POWER SAVINGS FLEXIBILITY Massive server deployments create requirements for custom designs that save on space, power and TCO.

TBR TBR Quarterly Webinar Series | 9.30.14 | www.tbri.com | ©2014 Technology Business Research Inc. Custom The rigid requirements of cloud-scale data centers created a massive market for custom hyperscale servers, delivered by providers such as Dell DCS, Quanta and Wistron (and now HP, with its newly formed joint venture with Foxconn). These engagements will remain tied to massive cloud deployments in service providers and a handful of very large enterprises that run workloads with cloudlike attributes. Off-the-shelf Concepts borne in cloud environments, including low-power, simplified physical designs and streamlined management, are infused into off-the-shelf server designs from Dell, HP and IBM. Although these products are technically appropriate for cloud-scale data centers, they represent the base on which server vendors will penetrate enterprise data centers and displace traditional x86 servers. Unlike most traditional x86 server infrastructure, hyperscale customers can choose between custom and off-the-shelf server products Primary target: Cloud Secondary target: Enterprise Primary target: Enterprise Secondary target: Cloud Hyperscale Servers Ride Cloud Momentum 7

TBR TBR Quarterly Webinar Series | 9.30.14 | www.tbri.com | ©2014 Technology Business Research Inc. • Compared with other attributes, purchase price and total cost of ownership are not fully matching customer expectations. • Hyperscale servers have a market perception as cloud-only products. Enterprise customers may not see the value for their environments. • Some adopters think they could have received roughly the same benefits from their existing x86 architectures. Barriers to adoption • Develop case studies that show real-world value for hyperscale servers. Customers need proof that the deployments will save them money. • Illustrate the value of delivering services in hyperscale deployments. This is a key differentiator for server OEMs, and it boosts overall value. • Customers are willing to replace traditional x86 servers with hyperscale servers. Develop strong use cases for those replacement opportunities. Messaging to unlock opportunity Moving ahead, hyperscale server vendors can unlock market opportunity by showing real-world value across cloud and enterprise environments 8 Hyperscale Servers Ride Cloud Momentum

TBR TBR Quarterly Webinar Series | 9.30.14 | www.tbri.com | ©2014 Technology Business Research Inc. Although customers are generally satisfied with hyperscale performance, opportunity remains for vendors to match expectations By and large, hyperscale server customers are satisfied with the performance of workloads on the architectures they purchase. However, primary workload targets such as cloud hosting do not receive the same satisfaction as other workloads, such as storage. As the cloud hosting market expands, vendors have an opportunity to better meet customer requirements to gain market share. 9 Hyperscale Servers Ride Cloud Momentum
