Adoption of cloud services has had a dramatic impact on enterprise network architectures. With SaaS and IaaS, organizations were forced to rethink long-standing connectivity paradigms. This represented a “to the cloud” challenge and led to innovations including SD-WAN and software-defined cloud interconnection (SDCI). Organizations are increasingly becoming more mature with their “to the cloud” strategy.
Now, we’re observing a shift in focus to in the cloud networking. In the next three years, Gartner believes this market will be heavily driven by public cloud adoption. Most organizations are making substantial commitments to public cloud infrastructure to increase the pace of innovation and drive new business. It is relatively simple to implement basic network functionality in cloud provider networks, but is difficult to add feature depth and scalability that many network teams are accustomed to. This creates increasing demand for cloud networking software.
Thus, we’ve seen increasing interest in cloud networking, and we expect this to continue. It is estimated that by 2023, 40% of all enterprise workloads will be deployed in cloud infrastructure and platform services, up from 20% in 2020.
