Global Microserver Market 2017-2021

About Microserver

A server is an important part of a data center. The operation of a server depends upon the hardware reliability and durability. Microservers are easy to configure, install, and maintain. Similar to other servers, they have inbuilt software, hardware, and operating systems. They save space, consume less power, and are ideal for light applications. The workload for microservers includes entry-level dedicated hosting, serving static web pages, and basic content delivery.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global microserver market to grow at a CAGR of 42.91% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Microserver Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global microserver market: Dell, HP Development, FUJITSU, Huawei Technologies, Quanta Computer, and Super Micro Computer.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Boston, Cavium, Marvell, Penguin Computing, Plat'Home, TYAN Computer, and Wiwynn.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is decline in microserver prices. Microservers have been offered in the market for around a decade. Since many enterprises are adopting cloud services for their business operations and to increase the use of analytics, several innovations, such as mission-critical and density-optimized servers, are being done in the global microserver market.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increase in the demand for energy-efficient servers. Earlier, servers used to consume around 50-80 watts, but the average power consumed by the servers currently is 350 watts. This shows that servers consume around 30% of the total power consumption of data centers. The power consumption depends on the server type and its configuration. Power consumption is a very important factor when it comes to the OPEX of data centers, globally. Virtualization and the use of microservers help increase the utilization of server infrastructure in modern data center environments where the number of ideal servers is decreasing rapidly.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is short life span of servers. The life cycle of servers in data centers varies depending on their use. Enterprises are required to upgrade their servers based on the workload. Modern servers have processors with new extensions, new memory types, aggressive power throttling, and advanced thermal management. The workload performance of servers degrades over time because of the application updates and patches. This also includes modern workload deployment, which requires chipset features that are not available in the existing configuration, resulting in poor performance.
