Worldwide and U.S. High-Availability Server Forecast, 2018-2021: 2016 Market Stabilizes After a Strong Product Refresh in 2015
By: Peter RuttenResearch Manager, Server Solutions, Lloyd Cohen
This IDC study provides a forecast for the high-availability server market for the 2018–2021 period.
"The march toward large amounts of low-end servers that are clustered for availability continues unabated," said Peter Rutten, research manager, Servers and Compute Platforms at IDC. "Just beyond 2020, more revenue will be generated from servers shipping with availability features based on clustering than on virtualization. This attests to the enormous impact hyperscale has on the high-availability server market."
