The top three emerging trends driving the global server microprocessor unit market according to Technavio hardware and semiconductor research analysts are:
- Growing need for micro data center facilities
- Growing popularity of white-box servers
- Decline in server prices
Growing need for micro data center facilities
“The growing amount of data through IoT connected devices has created a demand for micro-data centers. These data centers can offer maximum efficiency by greatly reducing the energy consumption, thereby driving their increased adoption,” says Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for embedded systems research.
Infrastructure housed in micro data centers include IT infrastructure, UPS systems, power distribution units (PDUs), and cooling units. The Lefdal Mine Datacenter is one of the largest modular investments and provides spaces for organizations to carry out their operations at lower OPEX.
Growing popularity of white-box servers
A white-box server is a storage or a network that does not have a well-known brand name. White box servers are custom-built as per client requirement and specifications and assembled by original device manufacturers using parts purchased separately from suppliers. Technological trends such as cloud-based service adoption, big data analytics, and the IoT are further boosting the adoption of these white box servers. These servers offer enhanced flexibility, require minimal power consumption, and have scalability options, which makes them very popular among end-users.
Decline in server prices
“Modern day servers are mission critical and density optimized. With many enterprises moving towards the cloud for business operations, these servers are finding wide adoption, allowing manufacturers to reduce manufacturing costs,” says Sunil.
There are extremely efficient server models that are targeted specifically for specific industry verticals with improved efficiency. Also, the availability and growing demand for converged and hyper-converged infrastructure solutions have intensified the competition among the vendors. The competition has led to a price war among vendors, benefitting the market growth.
