The Global Server Virtualization market is to grow at a CAGR of 31.07 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the need for better productivity of enterprise servers. The Global Server Virtualization market has also been witnessing the reduced downtime of end-user systems. However, the need for huge initial capital investment is reducing the adoption among SMEs which could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Rapid advancements in technology related to server virtualization have led to the incorporation of techniques to reduce the downtime of end-user systems during server and network maintenance. The data in the network is backed up periodically and measures are taken to ensure minimal downtime of the network. During server or network maintenance, the virtualized server instances keep running and do not allow any changes in the end-user processes. Even in case of a network failure, the server reinstates the system to the same state in which it was before the failure. With the adoption of server virtualization, enterprises are able to increase the productivity of their networks.
Enterprises across the globe generally possess a large number of systems and servers as a part of their enterprise infrastructure. These servers are underutilized much of the time, which leads to higher consumption of energy by the servers and network equipment. Virtualization of servers increases the productivity of the hardware and thus reduces the operational costs of the enterprise. The total number of servers required to cater to enterprise requirements is reduced considerably. By adopting virtualization technology, enterprises are able to harness the maximum amount of productivity from the servers and also efficiently manage data processing and storage management, which is driving the Global Server Virtualization market.
The key vendors dominating this market space are Citrix Systems Inc., Microsoft Corp., Red Hat Inc., and VMware Inc. The other vendors mentioned in the report are Parallels Inc., Oracle Corp., IBM Corp., and Hewlett-Packard Co.
