[Link] The Data Center Is (Almost) Dead

“Gartner predicts that by 2025, 80% of enterprises will shut down their traditional data centers. In fact, 10% of organizations already have.” This is from 4 to 5 years ago. How has it progressed since? My theory would be by…10% to 20%? Tracking by budget, spend is lower (or existing data centers are highly optimized, fill amortized, and this cheap as a percentage of IT budget): “Gartner’s 2019 IT Key Metrics Data shows that the percentage of the IT budget spent on data centers has decreased over the past several years, and now accounts for just 17% of the total.”
