Digital Transformation and Growth of Cloud market in China
 
According to China Internet Watch, China's public cloud IaaS market will reach RMB 342.58 billion (USD 49.87 billion) by the end of 2021. Small and medium-sized businesses are adopting public and private cloud offerings for their digital transformation strategies, while enterprises are adopting a multi-cloud, hybrid approach. For all these scenarios, both IT and DevOps teams are tasked with managing the ever-increasing complexity of the infrastructure to provide a better user experience. It is imperative for the teams to have end-to-end visibility of their infrastructure to proactively solve issues in the applications before they impact customers and their businesses.
