For instance, in January 2022, Amazon Web Services launched a new speed optimization solution for Microsoft Windows Server on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), providing 65% faster speed on EC2 while reducing the risk of costly delays. These new strategic initiatives notably prosper the market growth in the forecasting years.

Top Impacting Factors

Increase in spending on data center infrastructure

Data centers have to turn out to be an indispensable part of modern-day computing infrastructures across enterprises. They are now considered integral business parameters, not external facilities, for data storage and business operation models. This requirement is driven by the exponential rise of data centers and uses across a range of industries, which has created the lucrative need for data center and server operating systems. Servers are often considered the growth engine for the data center infrastructure. On servers, the processing and memory utilized to run applications may be physical, virtualized, distributed across containers, or circulated among remote nodes in an edge computing model. Therefore, the need for a server operating system plays a prominent role in the networking of the data center infrastructure, which eventually drives server OS market growth.

Growing adoption of hybrid cloud environment

Globally, the adaption of the cloud-based solution has been increasing rapidly and creating a huge need for computing. This requirement is primarily driven by the factors, such as the advent of IoT and Big Data technology. Further, the rise in the number of cloud-native server users and the increase in spending on the implementation of cloud services has accelerated the market growth. Moreover, companies have unique reasons for trusting cloud technology support in improving customer support, greater flexibility, and speed improvement. Thus, multiple benefits related to cloud technology are expected to open new avenues for the expansion of the global server OS market in the near future.
