Worldwide Virtual Machine and Cloud System Software Market Shares, 2015: Hypervisor Commoditization
This IDC study examines the market share of virtual machine and cloud system software (VMCSS) vendors in 2015 as well as the market forces that influenced their performances."The VMCSS market is seeing flat to declining revenue for virtualization as value is shifting away from the core virtualization platform and into management. However, virtualization shipments are still healthy and growing, albeit at a reduced rate due to saturation," says Gary Chen, research manager, Software-Defined Compute. "The emerging areas of this market, containers and cloud system software, are still small but are key future technologies for next-generation applications and infrastructure."
