This IDC study provides a detailed taxonomy for the dedicated cloud infrastructure and services market. The document covers the definitions of various building blocks and provides a top-level overview of dedicated cloud segments. IDC is retiring the term private cloud and replacing it with the term dedicated cloud, but the definition remains the same: environments in which IT resources are dedicated to a single organization and managed and delivered to end users utilizing cloud attributes. The growing availability of commercial and open source cloud platforms enable the increasing adoption of dedicated clouds by enterprises, while the proliferation of infrastructure management platforms for managing resources across multiple environments drives the expanding growth of hybrid IT environments.

"Dedicated cloud infrastructure and services are being pursued by IT infrastructure vendors in order to grow their market presence and compete with hyperscale cloud platforms. At the same time, those hyperscalers are seeking opportunities in bringing the public cloud experience and values on premises," says Chris Kanaracus, research director at IDC's Cloud Infrastructure Services. "Ultimately, enterprises benefit from the growing choices for deployment models that provide the benefits of cloud while addressing concerns such as data sovereignty, latency and security."
