Worldwide Software-Defined Compute Software Market Shares, 2017: Virtualization Shows Resilience

This IDC study examines the market share of software-defined compute (SDC) software vendors in 2017 as well as the market forces that influenced their performances."The SDC market that is seeing virtualization, the primary revenue component of SDC, continues to perform well in the face of public cloud and next-generation platforms. The market is transitioning to various cloud models and containerization, but that transformation is happening slowly and, in many ways, doesn't threaten virtualization," says Gary Chen, research manager, Software-Defined Compute. "Containers and cloud system software are future growth areas, but at this point, we see that most customers will use all three SDC technologies synergistically with each other for the foreseeable future."
