The global VPS industry was estimated at $2.63 billion in 2018. Allied Market Research’s report shows it is expected to hit $8.38 billion by 2026.
VPS – Virtual Private Server is a virtual machine sold as a service by hosting provider. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system. It serves super user-level access to the OS installed on the server. The user can install and make the required changes on the Operating System. A VPS works like a dedicated physical server, but is more scalable, economical and easily configured.
Security and downtime concerns rocks VPS
Security among the enterprises is getting more critical, so the administrators are looking for a more scalable, easily configured, and high uptime solution. This makes the cloud-based services an important actor for the enterprises. They provide a reduction in overall hardware requirements in the data center infrastructure, which helps the growth of the virtual private server market.
Limited physical resources and bandwidth concerns drive VPS forward for the hosting services. According to Allied Market Research’s report, it is expected to retain the VPS dominance through 2019-2026. The increase of website monitoring and set-up demand among the organizations boosted the growth.
Linux segment rules the terms of revenue
There are several templates to chose from on a VPS. Most of the VPS services provide Windows Server, BSD, and Linux OS. The report shows the Linux segment accounted for more than 5/3 of the global VPS market revenue in 2018. It is also anticipated to maintain its top status during the study period.
Because Linux is a more secure operating system, it helps the organizations focus on their business directly. Linux hosting and in-built security solutions are the significant factors of this growth. Thus, VPS provides sandbox security without affecting the physical server’s operation. Besides, VPS provides extra security to protect the sensitive data of enterprises, which serves as the key factor augmenting the adoption of VPS solutions among start-ups, small enterprises, and large enterprises.
