A typical server consists of dual-power supplies, a redundant array of independent disks system, and an error-correcting code (ECC) memory, which are tested for operations by vendors. There have been several innovations in the design and manufacture of servers, based on business needs.
The concept of a microserver involves installing multiple servers into one physical chassis for shared power and cooling. They are easy to install, configure, and maintain. They have inbuilt hardware, software, and operating systems. They save space, consume less power, and are suitable for light applications. The workload for microservers includes entry dedicated hosting, serving static web pages, and basic content delivery.
The analysts forecast the global data center microserver market to grow at a CAGR of 28.83% during the period 2016-2020.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “A trend which is helping to boost market growth is the increased construction of green data centers. High consumption of electricity by data centers and the increase in carbon emissions worldwide are leading to the construction of green data center facilities. These facilities help in the operation of energy efficient IT, power, and cooling infrastructure. The performance of green data centers is improving with the implementation of concepts such as free cooling, use of renewable energies, consolidation, and waste recycling, thereby reducing electricity cost and carbon footprint.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the rise in demand for cloud-based services. Many large enterprises operate cloud data centers for their daily business operations. These include CSPs such as AWS, Microsoft, and Google, which operate around 100,000 servers worldwide to meet the increasing business demands. Many cloud data centers are termed as mega data centers, which consume lots of power during peak data intensive operations. However, there has been an increase in innovations related to the design and deployment of servers that consume less power compared to traditional systems.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is performance-related limitations. Microservers are designed to work on specific workloads and do not have the power to handle workloads beyond their capabilities such as geographical calculations and advanced analytics.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
