Microserver Market Will Escalate Rapidly in the Near Future

In a report titled “Global Microserver Market – Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2013 – 2019,” Transparency Market Research states that the global microserver market is likely to expand at an astounding CAGR of 43.40% from 2013 to 2019. Factors such as the presence of single-application, dedicated, and high-scale customers, the growth of big data, cloud computing, and cloud-based services, and the rising demand for high-density, power-efficient, and low-cost server ecosystems can be attributed for the rapid expansion of the microserver market. Valued at US$1.5 bn in 2012, the global microserver market is anticipated to reach US$30.2 bn by 2019.

A microserver is a low-cost, single-socket, lightweight, and low-power server. A microserver comprises several small single-socket servers that share fans, power supply, a chassis, and a common interconnect to attain higher density, improved flexibility, and superior efficiency. Typically, a microserver environment includes an operating system, hardware, and application software. Thanks to the rapidly growing market for cloud-based services, microservers are in massive demand, thereby fueling the global microserver market. However, strong competition from other technologies such as server virtualization, the economics of switching to a microserver, and performance and program limitations threaten to hamper the growth of the microserver market.

By component, the microserver market is segregated into application software, hardware, and operating system. By processor type, the market is divided into ARM, Intel, AMD, and others such as power, Tilera, and MIPS. In 2012, Intel processor-based microservers held the largest share in the microserver market, with tough competition from the ARM segment.
