Worldwide Operating Systems and Subsystems Market Shares, 1H15: Soft Start to 2015
This IDC study discusses how this market is still pivotal to the adoption of 3rd Platform compute paradigms, since even the most exciting new compute models still depend on system infrastructure software in some form. While the revenue numbers may change, the need remains for operating systems and subsystems and there will be an ongoing need for the foreseeable future."Operating systems and subsystems remain critical to modern compute infrastructure as no cloud can operate without operating systems in the stack," said Al Gillen, group VP, Enterprise Infrastructure, IDC. "However, the softness in the view presented by the revenue totals highlights the increasing impact public cloud infrastructure is having on traditional datacenter spend."
