Enterprises worldwide are expected to spend nearly 3.8 trillion dollars this year on IT. A major chunk of this is going to Communication Services and IT Services with a significant chunk also being spent on devices, enterprise software and data center systems.
One reason why enterprise IT infrastructure costs so much is because they are designed to comply with all the federal regulations related to data storage and security/transmission. In addition to this, IT downtime can contribute to potential losses worth millions of dollars. Ramping up infrastructure to deal with peak loads is thus a critical need.
