This IDC study provides a size and forecast for the worldwide software-defined and virtualized network functions infrastructure market for the 2019-2023 period, specifically for compute and storage platforms. IDC estimates that this market — which consists of compute and storage infrastructure (hardware and software) — will reach $14.7 billion in 2023 and will grow at a CAGR of 10.9%.

"Some have claimed that network virtualization is dead and has been replaced by cloud; nothing could be further from the truth," said Kuba Stolarski, research director for IDC's Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies practice. "Instead, software-defined and virtualized network functions have evolved into mainstream cloud infrastructure options across the entire spectrum of enterprise and service provider infrastructure."
