Growing Trend of Server Virtualization and Consolidation to Drive the Enterprise Server market
Server virtualization enables an enterprise to build its disaster recovery solutions, by improving hardware abstraction capability and consolidating servers, to a less number of physical machines used in production. These server virtualization platforms also have software that help automate the failover during a disaster. By virtue of server virtualization application, isolation without application compatibility has been achieved, by consolidating several virtual machines. This helps in cutting down the server waste and move away from ‘one app, one server model’ for isolation of applications. As the trend toward cloud is on the rise, server virtualization also made enterprises to think of moving their data centers toward the usage of private cloud, initially. As the technology evolves and the public clouds mature, more data centers will tend to move the data out of the data center.
BFSI to Hold the Major Share by End User
Banking and financial institutions have been investing in enterprise server up gradation, to grab the opportunity of gaining competitive advantage, by substantially improving the server capabilities. Banking institutions are looking for smarter ways to improve the time to market and reduce the operational risk, by incorporate integrated systems that are able to handle disasters. As the infrastructure grew smarter with improvised infrastructure, the banking and financial institutions can implement strategic business initiatives, in core banking modernization, customer centricity, and analytics and risk management. With improved and fully optimized infrastructure and data centers, integrating with business partners (payment providers, government agencies, and insurance companies) will be easier and allow banking organizations to expand into new global markets.
United States to Hold the Major Share in North America
Being the hub of large-scale enterprises across all the industrial verticals, the United States held the major share of the global enterprise server market. The cutthroat competition in the market prompts the enterprises to adopt cost-effective modernized solutions. The Big Data and IoT penetration in the region have significantly transformed the size and scope of the enterprise server market in the country. With the existing competition, it has become imperative for organizations to evolve, in terms of IT scalability as well as capacity. Every day, American enterprises are engaging with countless new products, to send and receive various forms of information. The range of opportunity for communication is expansive in North America. The industry is investing billions of dollars in advanced networks and other infrastructure, so that they can accommodate the demand from the rapidly increasing data volumes.
