A key factor driving the growth of the market is the multiple benefits of SDS. IT teams of organizations have found storage to be among the costliest commodities to manage and maintain. SDS helps organizations to reduce their storage costs significantly. One of the biggest advantages of SDS solutions is that they can work with low-cost commodity hardware and do not require the expensive fiber channel (FC) switches, which are typically used in storage area networks (SAN). SDS solutions also have a high level of flexibility as it enables organizations to choose their own hardware and implement the SDS solution on it. Furthermore, SDS allows to scale up storage infrastructure without impacting the overall performance of the system. The benefits of SDS solutions in terms of scalability, flexibility, and cost savings are enhancing the overall growth of the market.

Global virtualization software market: Service providers focusing on vCPE solutions
Telecom service providers are finding multiple benefits from vCPE solutions. They can leverage NFVs to deliver vCPE solutions to end-users as it can be deployed on inexpensive commodity hardware at the customers’ premises. This reduces the total number of appliances and the overall cost incurred on the appliances, which are required at the customers’ end. In addition, there are many other benefits of vCPE solutions for telecom service providers. The main benefit of vCPE solutions is that multiple networking functions, such as routing or switching, can be run on a single device. Any updates to the network functions can be pushed through in the form of software upgrades to end-user devices. Furthermore, vCPE solutions are expected to play an even more important role as telecom service providers are preparing to launch 5G network services soon.
“Apart from service providers focusing on vCPE solutions, the benefits of desktop virtualization, the shift to mobile devices as VDI endpoints, and SDS setting up of hybrid cloud are some other major aspects that are expected to boost market growth during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
