Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Intelligent Platform Management Interface Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global intelligent platform management interface market: ARM, Cisco, Dell Technologies, HPE, Intel Corporation, and NEC Corporation.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Emerson, Microsoft, SoftLayer Technologies, and Super Micro Computer.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is implementation of software-defined data center (SDDC). Data center infrastructure consists of hardware such as servers and computers and network equipment such as switches and routers. An SDDC is a data center where the infrastructure consists of the physical layer, hardware, and software systems.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increased demand for cloud-based storage. Cloud-based storage is the delivery of cloud services such as servers, storage, databases, software, analytics, and networking through the Internet. The demand for cloud-based storage has grown due to the increased efficiency, cost, speed, global scale and productivity, performance, and reliability of the services provided by the vendors. The cloud-based services are of three types — public, private, and hybrid.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is increase in data center power density. In data centers, the per rack power density is increasing. The data centers are mainly used for the critical applications such as big data analytics. IPMI can manage data centers of power density up to 8 kW to 20 kW per rack. Therefore, there is a higher dependency on power distribution. Data centers need efficient UPS and generator systems to provide power.
