The bare metal cloud market size is estimated to grow from $0.87 Billion in 2016 to $4.71 Billion by 2021, according to a new market research report ‘Bare Metal Cloud Market by Service Type (Compute, Networking, Database, Identity & Access Management, Volume & Object Storage, Professional, and Managed), Professional Service Type, Organization Size, Vertical, and Region – Global Forecast to 2021’, published by MarketsandMarkets.
The major forces driving the bare metal cloud market are the growing need for high-performance computing and reliable load balancing of data-intensive and latency-sensitive operations. Moreover, the necessity of non-locking compute & storage resources, advent of fabric virtualization, and the need for noiseless neighbors & hypervisor tax are some of the factors that are driving the market.
The major vendors in bare metal cloud market would include IBM Corporation (U.S.), Oracle Corporation (U.S.), Rackspace Hosting, Inc. (U.S.), CenturyLink, Inc. (U.S.), Packet (U.S.), and Internap Corporation (U.S.).
Identity and Access Management
The Identity and Access Management service type is the fastest growing segment in the bare metal cloud market during the forecast period. Identity and Access Management (IAM) service type governs the IT resource access and optimizes the physical security of bare metal cloud servers and storages. It would be secure, scalable, and highly customizable, and organizations can model business structures to fit their security and operational needs.
Moreover, for deploying the bare metal cloud infrastructure, the minimum requirement is the security of the performance workloads and, hence, most of the vendors have been dedicatedly offering IAM services in the form of strong two-factor authentication for securing the performance workloads and billing accounts.
The database service type is expected to hold the largest market share in the bare metal cloud market during the forecast period. A database system is a dedicated bare metal cloud instance, which consolidates multiple database homes on a single server and permits the client to minimize idle resources, maximize efficiency, and lower costs. Bare metal dB Systems use locally attached non-volatile memory express storage to ensure maximum performance of the database.
Bare metal cloud database services are primarily adopted by the organizations with heavy database requirements that include gaming companies, public websites, social media websites, and companies that require rendering farms.
North America is expected to hold the largest market share and would dominate the bare metal cloud market from 2016 to 2021. This region has the major dominance with sustainable and well-established economies, empowering them to strongly invest in the Research and Development (R&D) activities, thereby contributing to the development of new technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), big data, DevOps, mobility, and social media. The rapid growth of start-up culture and cloud computing initiatives taken by major countries such as the U.S. and Canada are also responsible for the growth of the bare metal cloud market in North America.
