Nutanix and Microsoft Private Cloud: We begin our journey with Hyper-V – Part 1
Over the last few years, Hyper-V has gained great traction with IT organizations serving numerous use cases, geographies and customer segments. According to IDC, Hyper-V has grown to capture nearly 1/3rd of the hypervisor market in the last 5 years as seen in the chart below (source: IDC WW Quarterly Server Virtualization Tracker, Dec 2013).
Hyper-V’s market share is expected to grow at a faster rate than the general growth of virtualization, driven by several different factors including the upcoming end of support of Windows Server 2003. According to Microsoft, roughly 15 million instances of Windows Server 2003, most of them physical, will need to be upgraded within 12 months to avoid any lapses in support.
We are watching this market dynamic unfold as our Hyper-V customer base is rapidly growing. Systems running Hyper-V are in the triple digits just in the first few months following support for the hypervisor. Our healthy and growing pipeline of opportunities around VDI, remote office, business critical applications and private cloud deployments further supports the trend.
