Worldwide and U.S. High-Availability Server Forecast, 2016–2020: A New Baseline for Fault Tolerance While Clustering Is Outpacing the Market

This IDC study provides a forecast for the high-availability server market for the 2016–2020 period."The march toward huge amounts of low-end servers that are clustered for availability continues unabated," said Peter Rutten, research manager, High-End Server Solutions at IDC. "Just beyond 2020, more revenue will be generated from servers shipping with availability features based on clustering than on virtualization. This attests to the enormous impact hyperscale has on the high-availability server market."
