Follow us on LinkedIn – Defined as a server comprising of multiple nodes, micro servers are increasingly emerging as a low-cost and energy-efficient solution for processing low-intensive/less-demanding workloads. These servers are mainly finding usage in applications ranging from low-end dedicated hosting and simple content delivery nodes, to low-end web serving among others. While the low price point is the major factor driving popularity of micro servers among small and medium-sized businesses, energy-efficiency both in terms of power consumption and cooling, and space-saving attributes are encouraging their widespread adoption among larger enterprises.
While media storage is currently the leading application area for micro servers, adoption in data centres is gaining increased momentum due to the growing emphasis on aspects such as storage and security of data in the corporate arena. Cloud computing and analytics are the other application areas where micro servers are finding extensive usage. Driven by the growing establishment of internal data centers and the increasing focus on achieving greater efficiency in terms of workload processing, Web 2.0 companies are likely to emerge as major adopters of micro servers. These servers are also expected to find increased use in short-term projects, as they are relatively cheaper to deploy as compared to virtual servers.
Micro servers are gearing up to weaken the stronghold of virtualization owing to the growing need to achieve greater efficiencies. Given their low cost and energy efficiency benefits, micro servers are emerging as attractive alternatives to virtualization of large servers in data centers, with a single large server replaced by a cluster of micro servers, offering similar computational abilities. Growing trend towards server clustering is further encouraging this trend, largely as the result of constrained IT budgets.
As stated by the new market research report Micro Servers, the United States represents the largest market worldwide, while Asia Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGG of 88.1% over the analysis period. Asia-Pacific is mainly being led by strong IT spending in China. Further, the expanding base of small and medium sized businesses in developing Asian countries with relatively smaller IT budgets and high volume of small workloads is also fuelling adoption of micro servers in the region.
Major players in the market include Acer America Corporation, Dell Inc., Fujitsu Limited, Hewlett-Packard Company, Super Micro Computer Inc., and TYAN Computers Corp., among others.
