Virtualization software refers to an advanced solution that stimulates the abstraction layer over the physical hardware for enabling organizations to operate two or more virtual operating systems (OS) in a single platform. It offers flexibility, scalability, reliability, and optimal security, due to which it is used for disaster recovery, reducing downtime, enhancing productivity, performing instant provisioning, and optimizing overall work efficiency. On account of these properties, virtualization software finds extensive application in various industrial segments. At present, it is commercially available in varying types, such as network, storage, application, and hardware virtualization.
Virtualization Software Market Trends:
The widespread adoption of virtualization software across various industrial verticals, such as information technology (IT), telecom, retail, corporate and banking, financing, servicing, and insurance (BFSI) sectors for optimizing data security represents the key factor driving the market growth. In line with this, the sudden outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic across the globe has prompted organizations to adopt bring your own device (BYOD) and work-as-a-space (WaaS) corporate models for maintaining the ongoing business operations, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Additionally, significant technological advancements and the introduction of network function visualization (NFV) and virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE) solutions for leveraging information technology (IT) virtualization technologies at reduced costs are contributing to the market growth. Besides this, the advent of cloud services has further facilitated the need for virtualization software applications to enhance communication and meet the evolving network needs across organizations. This, in turn, is supporting the market growth. Other factors, such as the proliferating sales of smart devices, the emergence of the fifth generation (5G) network and the escalating investments in the research and development (R&D) activities for launching advanced web-related solutions, such as fiber and broadband, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
