Global Clustering Software Market 2015-2019
About Clustering Software
A cluster is a set of computers connected to form a single server resource for many web applications. Clustering is a method of transforming multiple computer servers into one group. The software is installed in each server that is connected to the network. The architecture of clustering software improves the performance and scalability of servers, and reduces operating costs. Clustering software also allows server developers, managers, or IT professionals to develop new technologies and integrate them with the legacy systems.Clustering is implemented at various levels of operating systems, which include hardware, OS, middleware, and systems management and its applications. The reliability of a cluster increases with the increase in the number of layers. The benefits of clustering software are:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Clustering Software Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global clustering software market: HP, IBM, Microsoft and VMware
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Fujitsu, NEC, Oracle, Red Hat, Silicon Graphics International and Symantec
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The upgrading of old OS enables ready support of data centre (virtualization) solutions without major changes to the underlying OS. It also simplifies the migration process from the older OS. An upgraded OS provides features like centralized monitoring and management of the connected systems, thereby reducing the workload of scheduled and automation software solutions. Vendors are developing clustering software on upgraded OSs to ensure better security and reliability to end-users.”
According to the report, with different configurations and networks, and more servers, customers require a unified view of the workloads. This unified view will help in checking the application uptime across networks, which helps administrators check all the servers and manage with applications and databases. Clustering software provides a unified view of the applications present on remote servers.
Further, the report states that the slow implementation process is a concern for the market.
