“Earlier, servers consumed closed to 50-80 watts of energy, but currently, the average power consumed by servers is close to 300 watts. Technavio researchers observe that servers consume almost 27% of the total power consumption of data centers in most data centers. This trend in power consumption among data centers significantly impacts data center operational expenditures worldwide. However, with the growing adoption of containerized data centers, enterprises will likely move towards energy-efficient IT infrastructure installations over the next four years,” said Rakesh Panda, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for data center research.

Most promising segments of the global data center equipment market by servers

  • Rack servers
  • Blade servers
  • Micro servers

Rack server segment of the global data center IT equipment market

The global data center rack server market was valued at USD 21.05 billion in 2014. Rack servers are also known as traditional data center servers. These servers are installed in data centers along with switches, backup batteries, and storage arrays. These are available in sizes such as 1U, 2U, and 4U. A single rack server (such as A 1U rack server) is 19 inches in width and 1.75 inches in height.

Revenue regenerated from the sales of rack servers is higher compared to other types of servers in the market. This is because of its increased adoption by most enterprise data centers that are operational worldwide. As businesses grow, enterprises are required to increase their data center operating expenditures. Some enterprises find virtualizing on blade servers better than rack servers. However, adoption of these servers will continue to increase because of end customer preference for expert support in operating these servers along with continued innovations with regards to computer power and energy efficiency.

Blade server segment of the global data center IT equipment market

The global data center blade server market was valued at USD 9.21 billion in 2014. Blade servers are ultra-compact and are designed and installed inside the chassis. This chassis supplies support infrastructure through backplane connections to blades.

Blade servers are more compact compared to rack servers but are similar in terms of performance, support for workload, and energy efficiency. Many enterprises prefer blade servers to reduce complexities in cabling and increase efficiency through integrated ethernet and fiber channel switches. In addition, the blade chassis enclosure reduces the supply of power and fans. Therefore, the adoption of blade servers will continue to increase in data centers that need computing power with reduced space and drive its demand.

Micro server segment of the global data center IT equipment market

The global data center micro server market was valued at close to USD 0.62 billion in 2014. Enterprises prefer micro servers due to its compact features. To further expand their market shares, vendors are predicted to enhance micro server efficiencies in computing heavy workloads.

Currently, the adoption of virtualization technology is at its peak, and micro servers are more expensive compared to other servers. If the vendors in the market overcome this challenge, the market is forecast to have a steady revenue outcome. It is also expected that micro servers will also begin to be used in modular and containerized data center facilities, which will increase market growth during the forecast period.
