GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Low-End Servers. The global market for Low-End Servers is projected to reach 12 million units by 2020, driven by the growing business activity in the small and medium sized business (SMB) enterprise sector, and rising demand for low-cost and energy-efficient servers in Asia-Pacific and Latin America.
Low-end servers, supported by their proven attributes of low-price, superior processing and security features, have emerged as a sturdy value proposition for enterprises seeking cost effective and better performing technology solutions. Small and medium sized businesses and home offices have long been the primary target for low-end servers, as high-end servers fail to fulfill the requirements of these businesses given their high cost and inability to effectively process low workloads of data. While the primary addressable market segments for low-end servers remain the small and medium sized business (SMBs), data centers, and home offices, use of these servers is gaining immense popularity in corporate branches, independent departments and workgroups of large enterprises. In addition, low-end servers span is expanding into in-house server based applications of large enterprises such as business software and e-mail systems. Simultaneously, low-end x86 servers are finding their use as replacements for high-priced high-end servers in cluster/grid based format, which is further enhancing the overall demand for low-end servers.
Enterprise data centers are now more than ever being strained to process gigantic amounts of information, thanks to the growing usage of a range of sophisticated mobile devices and the need to access information even on the move. While high costs, particularly CAPEX on high-end servers has been one of the major issues plaguing these data centers, scalability, increased energy consumption and the need for large space owing to the form factor of the servers and the requirement of powering and cooling them are the other factors that have been challenging IT managers in various facilities. Virtualization and cloud computing have significantly helped transform the data center environment by bringing about significant efficiencies at the macro level thereby enabling the facility to become more robust. However, there still exists the need for gaining efficiencies at the hardware level, which requires systems that help address major issues that these facilities have been predominantly facing. In this context, with their low price points and relatively reduced energy consumption attributes, low-end servers are making strong progress in the data center market.
As stated by the new market research report on Low-End Servers, Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market worldwide with a projected CAGR of 7.9% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by countries such as China and India. The rapid proliferation of SMBs in developing regions like Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Latin America bodes well for the market. Mushrooming of SMBs is largely the result of higher GDP growth, higher liquidity, and greater net incomes in these regions. In Europe, subdued growth in IT spending, especially in Western Europe, is casting a dampener on demand patterns in the domestic market.
Key players covered in the report include Acer America Corporation, Advanced Micro Devices Inc., Cisco Systems Inc., Dell Inc., Fujitsu Limited, Hewlett-Packard Company, Hitachi Data Systems, Intel Corporation, Lenovo, Microsoft Corporation, NCR Corporation, Oracle Corporation and Sugon.
