Desktop virtualisation Industry Outlook


The worldwide hosted virtual desktop (HVD) market will accelerate through 2013 to reach 49 million units, up from more than 500,000 units in 2009, according to Gartner Inc.

The Gartner report, "Emerging Technology Analysis: Hosted Virtual Desktops also stated while PC hardware expenditures would fall, enterprises would require more servers, network bandwidth and software to support new architectures.

Gartner estimated that approximately 15 percent of current worldwide traditional professional desktop PCs would migrate to HVDs by 2014, equal to about 66 million connected devices. The U.S. would reach double that of the worldwide average with over 18 million connected devices. After an initial slow start, the HVD market would rally in 2010 and 2011.

"Despite the further improvements in performance and manageability that are expected of HVDs in 2009, the current economic downturn is expected to inhibit the adoption of HVDs in the short term because HVD deployments require large upfront investments in server and network infrastructure," Jump said. "Because of IT budget cuts, we expect many planned HVD implementations to be delayed from 2009 into 2010 and 2011”.
