The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global microserver market for 2017-2021. A microserver is a server class computer based on a system-on-a-chip(SoC) design. In a microserver, most of the server components are integrated onto a single microchip, excluding boot FLASH, DRAM, and power circuits.
Most of the microservers available in the market are powered by Intel at present. Intel has worked closely with Facebook to design its microservers. Currently, the overall awareness of microservers is less in the industry because they are still in the nascent stage in terms of adoption (for data centers). However, vendors are promoting microservers as they are suitable for powering business operations such as dedicated hosting, content delivery network (CDN), and light big data workloads.

Increase in business operational needs
The adoption of cloud-based services and big data analytics is growing significantly. Also, digitalization has surged the number of application workloads on servers with cross-platform support. Enterprises are involved in improvising the utilization of underlying data center infrastructure using virtualization techniques to gain competitive advantages.
Chetan Mohan, a lead data center research analyst at Technavio, says, “Most of the enterprises worldwide are involved in increasing their data center footprint, which is identified to be heavily contributed by CSPs and colocation providers. For example, Google is likely to add eight new availability regions worldwide to grow its cloud platform revenue in 2017.”
Increase in the demand for energy-efficient servers
Earlier, servers used to consume around 50-80 watts, but the average power consumed by the servers currently is 350 watts. This shows that servers consume around 30% of the total power consumption of data centers. The power consumption depends on the server type and its configuration. Power consumption is a very important factor when it comes to the OPEX of data centers, globally.
“The extension of data center facilities includes the installation of additional energy-efficient servers that emit less heat into the data center racks. Energy-efficient servers consume power based on the real-time performance. SDDCs will aid in moving workloads automatically from one server to another. This will increase the adoption of SDDC-enabled servers in data center environments, especially in cloud data centers,” adds Chetan.
Adoption of cloud-based storage by enterprises
Cloud data storage is considered as an effective option by enterprises worldwide. Commercial data requires a large storage space, which varies for SMEs and large firms. With the rising amount of data generated through IoT, on-premises data storage is expensive. Therefore, many enterprises have started moving their data to the cloud storage by selecting service providers such as Microsoft Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud Platform.
Cloud computing offers options to archive and backs up data online. Microservers are suitable for web-based operations such as dedicated hosting. Thus, the increase in the adoption of cloud-based storage will fuel the demand for microservers during the forecast period.
