Global server virtualization market has been segmented into cloud and on-premises, based on deployment. Server virtualization refers to a partition of physical servers into several virtual servers and each virtual server is running its own applications and operating system.

In the global server virtualization market, cloud-based server virtualization is the masking of server resources. The servers know the identity of each of the physical servers. The single physical server is then split into multiple isolated virtual servers, with the assistance of software.

In the global server virtualization market, three types of server virtualization systems are there in cloud computing:

  • Hypervisor - A Hypervisor refers to a layer between the hardware and operating system. Behind the successful functioning of multiple operating systems lies the contribution of hypervisor. It can perform tasks such as returning the hardware request, dispatching, and handling queues. A host of operating systems works on the top of the hypervisor and it is used to manage and administer virtual machines.
  • Para-Virtualization – It is model is based on the guest operating system, hypervisor and modified entry compiled for setting it up in a virtual machine. Post modification, the overall performance of the system is augmented as the guest operating system directly communicates with the hypervisor.
  • Full Virtualization - Full virtualizations is capable of imitating the underlying hardware. It bears resemblance to the functioning of para-virtualization. In this, the machine operation is used by the operating system, which is the used to perform input-output function or make modification of the system status. The unmodified operating system can be made to run on the top of the hypervisor.

These days, organizations posses a large number of servers but do not use them. This leads to wastage of expensive servers. Server virtualization finds its use in IT infrastructure, this can diminish cost by increasing the usage of existing servers, thereby boosting global server virtualization market.

Server Virtualization Market: Introduction

Server virtualization is a transcription of multiple server instances which fulfill the different kind of computing needs of the enterprise on a single server hardware. The server administrator uses software application to divide a physical server into small isolated virtual environment. These virtual environments are also known as private server, containers or emulations. In enterprise application, some servers are in idle mode as the workload is distributed to only few servers on the network. This results in wastage of power, expensive hardware resources and maintenance. So, enterprises are adopting virtualized server to avoid wastage of resources and helps to run multiple operating system instances at a time.

Server virtualization technology is commonly used in virtual web servers to provide low cost web hosting services. There are several ways to create virtual server including virtual machine, operating system-level virtualization and paravirtual machine. The server capacity is used to its superlative level by adopting server virtualization solution which will drive the market in positive manner.

Server Virtualization Market: Drivers and Challenges

The major factors driving the server virtualization market is owing to the need for better productivity of enterprise infrastructure. Now-a-days, there is rapid increase in demand for computational requirement from enterprises and end users, so there is certain rise in adoption of computational resources. The computing resources are imitated a catered to during execution of application. Cloud computing is another major factor which takes virtualization to a different level. Moreover, by deploying cloud based solutions and services, enterprises will be able to provision their applications automatically to an end user irrespective to the location of device.

The major restraints faced by Server virtualization market are owing to increase in capital investment which is required for reconstructing the network infrastructure and components.
