This IDC study provides an overview of and definitions for IDC's research on server and enterprise storage systems workloads. This taxonomy is a base for two quantitative products: IDC's Worldwide Semiannual Enterprise Storage Systems Tracker: Workloads and IDC's Worldwide Semiannual Server Tracker: Workloads as well as IDC's new Infrastructure for Workloads: Trends and Strategies subscription service. The server and ESS workloads research analyzes deployments of server and storage infrastructure for serving 18 types of workloads running in traditional and cloud IT environments. Driven by extensive primary research and analysis, three workloads-related products provide insights on trends in workload migration, demand for certain server and storage technologies for various workloads, and forecast for end-user spend on server and storage infrastructure supporting these workloads."IDC's workloads research evaluates consumption of server and storage resources to power enterprise workloads across multiple deployment models, locations, infrastructure tiers, and application architectures," said Natalya Yezhkova, research vice president, IDC's Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group. "In addition, this research provides actionable insights into buyer behavior and recommendations on infrastructure modernization trends and strategies to enable enterprises that are undergoing digital transformations."
