Worldwide Availability and Clustering Software 2014–2018 Forecast: High Customer Expectations, Slow Growth
This IDC study provides a sizing of the worldwide availability and clustering software (ACS) market in 2013, and it includes a 2014–2018 forecast for this market. Historical and forecast revenue data is shown for the total worldwide market and by geographic region and operating environment. This study does not contain vendor-specific revenue, market shares, or vendor profiles, all of which will be published in separate studies during 2014.
"In the near future, medium levels of availability will become a baseline expectation, fulfilled by cloud management or virtual environment management software. ACS will move up to providing very high levels of availability on top of, or in concert with, this management software. ACS vendors will have to provide more and more functionality paired with simplicity and affordability to satisfy enterprise customers' availability needs." — Peter Rutten, research manager, Server Solutions
