The global microserver market is one of the key drivers contributing to the sale of servers. Microserver refers to a server appliance which works similar to a server. Microserver are basically off-the-shelf appliances which are easy to install and maintain. They come with inbuilt hardware, software, and operating system. These components are preinstalled and configured by the server manufacturer.

Some of the configuration functions of these servers can be performed by the end-user using a touch panel. The access to the server appliance is using an Internet browser. Microservers are popular among small and medium-sized businesses which require a server, but not a full-scale tower server or rack. These are mostly used by organizations which operate with minimal staff at branch or local offices.
According to the components of microserver environment, the global microserver market is sectioned into hardware, application software, and operating system. By application, the market is segmented into two sectors which are data centers and cloud. Data centers today are forced to store more data than ever before. Social networking and new devices demand for higher data center performance.
Concepts such as virtualization and cloud have contributed for data center to emerge as robust multilayered environment. Microservers allow sharing of power, networking, cabling, and storage while taking up minimal space inside the racks of data centers. According to the processor type the market is divided into Intel, AMD, and ARMS. Some other minor processor segments in the market include Power, MIPS, and Tilera.
Key Drivers and Constraining Factors
The revenue generated by this market was affected by the global economic meltdown and price decline in the past few years. These factors were responsible for the decline observed in this market. However, there are many factors that will contribute to the growth of this market. It is predicted by market analysts that in next five years this sector will achieve record highs.
There are three main factors which drive the growth of this market. Growing demand by consumers for power efficient, low cost, high density server ecosystems is a major factor that fuels the growth of this market. With the advent of cloud computing, cloud-based services and big data are in demand, which in turn contributes to this market. This market also provides dedicated, single application, and high-scale consumers.
On the other hand, elements such as economics of switching to microserver, competition with other technologies, and program compatibility with other legacy servers and performance limitations hamper the growth of the market.
Global Market Outlook
The end-users in this market have been segmented according to their size. These include small-sized enterprises which can be from 1 to 100 employees, medium-sized enterprises which can include 100 to 1000 employees, and into large-sized enterprises which can be over 1000 employees. The key geographic regions in this market are North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World.
Data center and Cloud are two major significant applications of microserver market. They can be used for webpage hosting or storage. It is estimated by market analysts that the market for microservers globally in the cloud application segment will experience a growth rate of 62% CAGR during 2013 to 2019. North America holds the largest market share with a total share of USD 496.73 million.
However, it is forecasted by a market intelligence company that Europe and Asia Pacific will experience a higher growth from 2013 to 2019. The market of microserver will grow at a 50.8% CAGR during the forecast period and the global microserver market will reach a value of USD 30,205.56 million by the year 2019.
