By: Stephen BelangerSenior Research Analyst, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, Ashish NadkarniGroup Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group


This IDC study provides worldwide market share data for operating systems and subsystems for calendar year 2017.

"Operating systems and subsystems are the foundation for a modern infrastructure and provide the foundation necessary for hosting traditional as well as next-generation applications," said Stephen Belanger, senior research analyst, Computing Platforms, IDC. "As applications are replatformed, repackaged, and refactored, operating systems will continue to be the platform on which applications can be run as bare metal, virtualized and, increasingly, containerized."
