Research and Markets: Global Hosted Virtual Desktop Market 2014-2018 with Citrix Systems, Microsoft, Oracle & VMware Dominating

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/m9hvzg/global_hosted) has announced the addition of the "Global Hosted Virtual Desktop Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The Global Hosted Virtual Desktop market will grow at a CAGR of 63.7 percent over the period 2013-2018

A hosted virtual desktop is a computing model where the end-user system is separated from the physical infrastructure and is accessed virtually over the end-user system using a client-server model. The system images are stored centrally at the server-end and access to the system images is provided remotely over the internet using login credentials. The computing model makes use of centralized storage space to store system images and access to end-user data is provided through applications and interfaces.

Rapid technological developments and the increasing need for advanced computing solutions is leading to an increase in the adoption of cloud computing and cloud-based services across the world. Increasing complexity of enterprise requirements and higher adoption of services by end-users is also leading to higher complexity in the provisioning of hosted virtual desktop services. Cloud-based service providers are optimizing the network capabilities of companies to support various applications over end-user systems. Cloud-based services are cheaper than the internal provisioning of similar services, which is leading to their higher adoption. End-users of hosted virtual desktop solutions can easily adopt cloud-based computing solutions as much fewer infrastructural changes are required prior to adoption.

According to the report, an increase in the need for efficient and well-managed computing solutions has led to the evolution of these solutions. The reduced application delivery cost of these solutions is one of the major drivers in the market.

Further, the report states that the lack of bandwidth support for companies to enable them to transmit data and applications from one place to another is one of the major challenges in the market.
