DUBLIN, July 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets( has announced the addition of the "Global Clustering Software Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the global clustering software market to grow at a CAGR of 4.23% over the period 2014-2019.

A cluster is a set of computers connected to form a single server resource for many web applications. Clustering is a method of transforming multiple computer servers into one group. The software is installed in each server that is connected to the network. The architecture of clustering software improves the performance and scalability of servers, and reduces operating costs. Clustering software also allows server developers, managers, or IT professionals to develop new technologies and integrate them with the legacy systems.

The upgrading of old OS enables ready support of data centre (virtualization) solutions without major changes to the underlying OS. It also simplifies the migration process from the older OS. An upgraded OS provides features like centralized monitoring and management of the connected systems, thereby reducing the workload of scheduled and automation software solutions. Vendors are developing clustering software on upgraded OSs to ensure better security and reliability to end-users.

According to the report, with different configurations and networks, and more servers, customers require a unified view of the workloads. This unified view will help in checking the application uptime across networks, which helps administrators check all the servers and manage with applications and databases. Clustering software provides a unified view of the applications present on remote servers.

Further, the report states that the slow implementation process is a concern for the market.

Clustering is implemented at various levels of operating systems, which include hardware, OS, middleware, and systems management and its applications. The reliability of a cluster increases with the increase in the number of layers.

The benefits of clustering software are:

  • Optimal use of resources and their consolidation
  • Improved scalability
  • Centralized system management
  • High processing capacity
  • Geographical server presence
  • Disaster recovery; clustering with built-in recovery features is used in most of the applications.

A typical clustering setup includes:

  • A disk shared between nodes
  • A private heartbeat network between nodes

It considers revenue generated from the following software segments:

  • Parallel environment
  • Workload balancing
  • System management

It considers revenue generated from the following OS used for clustering:

  • UNIX
  • Linux
  • Windows
  • Others: This includes mainframe, embedded, and iOS
