Virtualization Software: A Global Market Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 22, 2010
"Virtualization", as a technology, has been one of the most popular trends in the IT sector over the last few years. Aimed at enhancing data center operations, virtualization technologies continue to receive steady inflow of investments from organizations across the world. Virtualization opens up a world of possibilities both in terms of operational/cost efficiencies and computing efficiencies. By emulating a hardware system, virtualization software creates a virtual machine, within the main machine, while simultaneously eliminating the bottlenecks of a traditionally shared environment. Adoption of virtualization technologies is increasingly proving to be recession proof with adoption plans actually accelerating despite the declining IT budgets. Virtualization also readily fits into green IT strategies of companies, as it promises to eliminate the need for more energy-intensive hardware resources. Virtualization software market thus projects a positive outlook for the short to medium term period, during which the technology can alleviate the burden of growing operational and management costs, which businesses are feeling the maximum pinch.
Several novel and innovative improvements have been made to virtualization technologies, especially by pioneer vendors in this space. Vendors are sprucing up their virtualization offerings to ensure higher than average increase in cost savings. Several of the innovations are geared towards keeping the demand momentum going by offering customers higher price to value deals, which becomes especially critical in economic environments like the present. Proprietary virtualization software solutions, which were popular in the early adopters stage are now giving way to more interoperable, open source virtualization software solutions, largely as a result of unwillingness among client companies to sacrifice model interoperability, flexibility, and standards compliance. Additionally, vendors are also focusing on educating customers about virtualization, which being primarily a concept rather than a standalone product requires understanding of the intricacies of how, what, where, who and why of the technology. Higher awareness determines the success of the technology when implemented.
As stated by the new market research report on Virtualization Software, the global market is expected to reach $11.98 billion by 2015. After a fleeting, short-lived slowdown, mostly a knee jerk reaction to the recessionary economic climate, the market for virtualization software is ready to traverse an upward trajectory, interestingly encouraged by the recession, which has and continues to rattle industries across the world. Server virtualization software continues to be the leading market segment in the global virtualization software market. In segmental perspective, strong opportunities for growth lie in the PC Disk Virtualization market.
Key players dominating the marketplace include Citrix Systems Inc, IBM Corporation, Microsoft Corporation, Oracle Corporation, Symantec Corporation, VMWARE Inc, and Parallels Inc, among others.
