Virtual machine is a software program on the computer which acts as a virtual computers. It runs on the pre-installed operating system or host operating system of the computer and get access of virtual hardware such as virtual CPU, virtual memory, network interface and other devices and work as a guest operating system. This guest or secondary operating system runs in a small window just like any other application do run over the computer system. This secondary OS runs on the system as normally as the host one, the virtual hardware used by guest operating system are mapped to real hardware on real machine for example, virtual memory of virtual machine is stored on the real hard drive in the form of a file. Virtual machines have number of uses: testing of new version of operating systems, use software compatible to other operating system or outdated OS, test software on different operating system by using single physical machine and the most important is consolidate software. Global virtual machine market has been witnessing a tremendous growth for last decades and is expected to grow with a substantial CAGR over a forecast period.

Virtual Machine Market: Dynamics

As virtualization of system is becoming more popular in modern data centers because IT decision makers expecting that virtualization of systems benefit the organizations in the near future. The key drivers responsible in the growth of virtual machine market include high adoption rate of virtual machine by modern data centers and IT organizations because of the advantageous features provided by these virtual machines, such as it helps to reduce investment in installing different real machines for using different operating systems, rather single real machine can be installed with multiple virtual machine, as various virtual machines can be installed over the single system with sufficient memory, virtual machine also helps to protect data, as any harmful application running over virtual OS can’t affect the data saved on host OS means virtual OS is completely isolated from the host one. On the contrary side, lack of awareness and market presence of more advanced and economic solutions are proving to be the key restraints hindering the growth of global virtual machine market.
