Hosting sites will move R $2 bi

After "walking Sideways" for five years, the industry of shared hosting providers and public cloud services infrastructure in Brazil has grown again. With the leap of 25% in the first semester, the estimate is to close 2019 with the same pace of increment and to invoice R $2 billion. The data, obtained exclusively by the DCI, are from the Brazilian Association of Internet hosting infrastructure Companies (AbraHosting), an entity that has, along with its membership base, about 60% of Internet traffic in the Brasil.De Agreement as President of AbraHosting, Luis Carlos dos Anjos, the current growth rate represents a surprising resumption of the average advances of the beginning of this decade, after five consecutive years of deceleration. The executive explains that, from the crisis of 2013 to 2018, the sector started to move slower, around 7 to 10%, against a previous rate always higher than 20% per year. "In fact, the speed of the impulse verified in the last 12 months points to a greater acceleration, in confluence with the isolated prognosis of some providers, who talk about growing up to 40% in certain classes of services," says the executive. To explain this movement stronger than expected, Luis Carlos dos Anjos points to an increasingly massive adherence of small and medium-sized businesses to cloud infrastructure. It also reinforces the unprecedented movement of digital transformation of the economy with the dissemination of business based on mobile applications and automation through M2M (machine-to-machine) technology. "A large number of providers are multiplying their IaaS (infrastructure as a service) and Paas (platform as a service) revenues for hosting, running, and managing applications for companies in the new networked economy," he says. It points as an example of the phenomenon the fast food apps (connecting millions of people with thousands of cafeterias and restaurants), or chartering and transportation, professional home services, video streaming, interactive games and connecting teams to Collaboration, among countless marketplaces and other services available. The executive also points out that a large number of companies are preferring to go to the cloud, rather than upgrade their IT parks in the obsolescence phase, or invest in expanding infrastructure at home. It mentions the case of users of Windows 7 applications, who have lost the factory support offered by Microsoft and depart for cloud applications as an alternative to updating licenses. "In the case of larger companies, there is already a culture rooted in favor of the form of delivery XaaS, not only for the sake of economics, but also of reliability, performance and security availability," he concludes. Investment in sight for next year, the executive expects an increase in investments made by companies for technology. The reason, according to him, is the need to adapt the companies to the requirements of the general Law on Personal Data Protection (LGPD). Traditionally, entrepreneurs invest about 10% of their revenues to improve IT, a number that should reach 13%. In a recent survey, the entity has detected that much of the providers expect to invest more this year on topics such as cloud security, identity and access management, and data availability systems.
