Prague, July 17,2014 ­– In Q1 2014, the rate of virtualization for new server shipments in the Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (CEMA) region increased by five percentage points year on year, to reach 32%, according to data contained in the Europe, Middle East and Africa Quarterly Server Virtualization

Tracker published by global market research company IDC.


"Despite a contraction in server shipments of 4.7% in this period, the emerging markets of CEMA posted 11.5% growth in server units virtualized," says Mohamed Hefny, a senior research analyst in the Systems and Infrastructure Solutions department of IDC CEMA. "This reflects increasing maturity in the use of virtualization to consolidate infrastructure, using fewer servers to deploy more VMs, and fully exploiting the latest hardware capabilities."

Compared to the mature markets of Western Europe (WE), virtualization in the emerging markets of Central and Eastern Europe is still developing slowly, due to the large installed base of old servers and the widespread usage of single-socket tower servers in non-critical applications. On the other hand, virtualization rates in the Middle East and Africa are similar to WE, as the region is known for leapfrogging to the most updated technologies and latest trends.
