Overview of the global hypervisor market

The global hypervisor market report predicts the market to register a CAGR of more than 4% by 2021. The growing popularity of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) will be one of the key hypervisor market drivers. The demand for VDI is high because they simplify the network dynamics and centralize the monitoring and management of the IT system. Various enterprises are increasingly adopting the VDI model to manage hundreds and thousands of individual systems by centralizing the management of desktop systems. The implementation of VDI enables the better utilization of an enterprise's infrastructure and enhances the employees’ productivity. It also reduces the per-seat cost of enterprises by allowing computing devices to use enterprise applications from remote locations.

The growing popularity of white-box servers is one of the key hypervisor market trends. White-box servers help in increasing the scalability of operations. They also improve the flexibility and reduce the power consumed by servers in data centers. White-box servers are flexible enough to run any application and are less expensive. The rising penetration of white-box servers will have a positive influence on the adoption of the hypervisor in various organizations.
