According to Market Research Future, the global bare metal cloud market is expected to grow from $1.52 billion in 2017 to $7.73 billion by 2023
In every sector, cloud is rapidly becoming mainstream. Business and technology leaders know that only cloud can offer them the agility, efficiency and flexibility they need in the digital age. Yet while enterprises want to embrace the opportunities of the modern day cloud, they don’t want to cause unnecessary disruption to their existing. IT landscape or upgrade all their legacy applications. This presents a conundrum, as most legacy applications were not designed to run in the cloud.
Organizations must address specialized workloads that are not suitable for public or private cloud. This is where bare metal can help, by making it possible to run such workloads – including Oracle, SAP HANA and mainframe – within a cloud environment. This means organizations can lower their costs and minimize disruption on their journey to cloud.
