2016-2020 Composable-Disaggregated Infrastructure Demand Outlook Compared to 2021-2031 Forecast

Enterprises are generating more data than ever, but they also need applications that can make sense of all this information. Many are turning to AI, big data analytics and other advanced technologies that can derive meaningful insights from the data. Such applications require adequate IT infrastructure to support them.

Infrastructure alone is seldom enough. Requirements can vary significantly from one application to the next and even fluctuate within the same application. These changing application requirements make it difficult for traditional infrastructure to meet the demands of the advanced workloads. For this reason, many organizations are now looking to composable disaggregated infrastructure.

The sales for composable-disaggregated infrastructure solutions is estimated to rise at 26.3% CAGR between 2021 and 2031 in comparison with 22.2% CAGR registered during 2016-2020.  

Integration with automation software assembling components dynamically into a complete solution for the workload is one of the primary growth factors for the market. Increasing number of IT enterprises are shifting to DevOps methodology for application development is also expected to contribute significantly to the composable disaggregated infrastructure market. Overall, dynamic applications of composable disaggregated infrastructure, and the growing awareness of them, is what drives the overall industry growth.

The global composable-disaggregated infrastructure growth scenario is anticipated to witness an increase in revenue from US$ 2.2 Bn in 2021 to US$ 39.5 Bn by 2031.

How Demand for New Memory-Centric Infrastructure Shaping the Market Growth?

Data-hungry applications will create demand for new infrastructure architectures that can provide cloudlike agility and scale but with the on-premises security. Such infrastructure will need to shed the compute-centric design and be built using newer (radical) memory-centric principles. Composable-disaggregated infrastructure is an avenue to achieving that reality. Memory-centric infrastructure platforms built with low-latency, high-bandwidth fabrics have the potential to indelibly change the server and storage market dynamics.

Furthermore, the traditional siloed datacenter architectures are unable to provide flexibility required by business critical applications of modern world. Additionally, increasing number of IT enterprises are shifting to DevOps methodology for application development, which requires an agile infrastructure to keep up with the rapidly evolving application demands and often uses an “infrastructure as code” approach to optimize allocation of resources.

What Is the Impact of COVID-19 Crisis on Composable-Disaggregated Infrastructure Solutions Demand?

The rapid spread of COVID-19 has disrupted the world’s economy. IT service companies have also experienced significant slowdown in growth during this period. However, IT infrastructure still remains the backbone of smooth business operations.

There has been significant increase in demand for IT infrastructure monitoring tools as a result of COVID-19 lockdown measures, as most employees are working remotely. Companies are making their IT departments ensure that all applications that are required for business operations are running smoothly for all the employees. Thus, during the pandemic period, demand for IT infrastructure monitoring tools has surged.

Over the past few years, there is increasing demand for data globally. Although the digital transformation has been underway for some time, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the transition. Enterprises of all sizes are expanding rapidly, driving demand for robust regional IT infrastructure. Countries has experienced intensified data demand during the pandemic and underscored the importance of digital technology and data centers. Thus, all the major countries have experienced an increase in demand for data centers during the pandemic.

Thus, the demand for composable-disaggregated infrastructure is estimated to witness a noteworthy growth from around 21.7% to 24.5% Y-o-Y from 2019 to 2021.

Categorywise Insights

Why is the Demand for Disaggregated Hardware Continuously Rising?

Based on component, disaggregated hardware is expected to contribute for nearly 63% of the overall share in 2021. Initial disaggregation of subsystems within physical servers begins with the decoupling of the storage and networking from the CPU and memory.

Networking is shared by all resources, CPU and memory are housed on distinct nodes/trays from storage trays/nodes, and latency complications still prevent the separation of CPU from the memory.

The disaggregation of the components provides ample flexibility in the architecture to achieve the best ratio of compute to I/O to storage for a wide range of workloads and provides the ability to compose optimal configurations to address compute-intensive, data-intensive, and/or balanced workloads based on the unique requirements of specific applications.

Why Enterprises Mostly Prefer the Composable-Disaggregated Infrastructure?

The enterprises segment, among end users, is projected to register a massive demand, exhibiting  noteworthy growth at a CAGR of 28.6% over the coming years. In today's enterprise, data can come from transactional systems, IoT devices, social media sites, web logs, user devices, monitored IT systems and a variety of other sources.

By deriving insights from this data, organizations can realize multiple benefits. For example, they might use this information to optimize IT operations or increase employee productivity. Alternatively, they might use it to improve customer services or gain competitive edge.

Resources become elastic building blocks for delivering an optimal environment that's provisioned and configured to support a specific workload without having to wait on lengthy IT allocation processes.

With composable-disaggregated infrastructure, enterprises can enhance configurations as workload requirements change, assembling and reassembling resources in response to evolving application and business requirements.

When the application no longer needs those resources, they're returned to the resource pool and are ready for use by other applications. Thus, enterprises are likely to witness tremendous growth over the forecast period.

What are the Prospects for Sales of Composable-Disaggregated Infrastructure Solutions for SMEs?

In terms of enterprise size, the market is segmented into small & medium enterprises (SMEs) and large enterprises. The SMEs segment is expected to register astounding growth at a CAGR of 27.9%, while also creating an incremental opportunity of US$ 9.7 Bn through 2031.

With today’s cutting-edge technologies, the IT landscapes of small- and mid-sized organizations tend to be just as complex as those of larger counterparts, just on a much smaller scale.

A sound IT infrastructure, including the company network, is just as important to small- and mid-sized companies as it is to larger businesses. However, smaller companies often have small IT teams or even a single administrator.

Hence, auxiliary tools such as composable-disaggregated infrastructure solutions are gaining immense popularity among  smaller businesses.

Composable-disaggregated infrastructure has the potential to deliver incalculable value to mid-sized companies. Consequently, paving a way for lucrative opportunities within small- and mid-sized enterprises. Thereby propelling market growth.

Competitive Landscape

The composable-disaggregated infrastructure industry is highly concentrated and controlled by dominant players, like Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Cisco Systems Inc., Dell EMC, and Ericsson.

Key companies are focusing on introduction of new solutions and strategic partnerships to increase their business revenue. However, with product innovations and technological advancements, midsize to smaller firms are growing their market presence by securing new contracts and tapping new markets.

  • For instance, in February 2021, Dell Technologies announced an investment of US$ 50 million over three years since 2019 in the establishment of a Global Innovation Hub (GIH) in Singapore. The GIH will focus on advancing multiple growth areas for digital transformation including augmented/mixed reality, data analytics, cloud-native, cybersecurity and edge computing. It will also be the home to a specialized team responsible for enhancing user experiences through innovation.
