IDC Report: Huawei Takes 2nd Spot in Global Software Defined Compute Market
According to the latest 2017H2 SDC Software Tracker released by IDC, Huawei takes the 2nd spot in the global software-defined compute (SDC) market, and continues to hold the top spot in China's cloud system software (CSS) market, which shows customers' growing confidence in Huawei's FusionSphere cloud OS products, both in and outside of China.
Released on a semi-annual basis, IDC SDC Software Tracker provides accurate and timely market size, vendor share, and forecasts for hundreds of technology markets around the globe, supporting IDC clients' decisions in the planning and management of their businesses. The SDC software covered in the IDC tracker includes virtual machine software (VMS), container infrastructure software (CIS), and cloud system software (CSS), the combination of which, IDC believes, forms the foundation of software-defined computing and cloud computing. These software technologies are often used in the context of public or private clouds but can also be implemented in noncloud environments, particularly virtualized environments. Besides continuously following the trends of traditional VMS software, IDC started to track the OpenStack software market in 2017, which is part of the CSS software market.
