Global DaaS Market Overview 

Originally invented and implemented to divide the huge mainframe computers that existed, virtualization was born back in 1960s and took shape only when VMware re-introduced the technology to address the concern of increasing physical infrastructure costs in late-1990s. Although, IBM used the technology to implement it on their servers in the mid-1980s, it was VMware that took it to the masses.

VMware re-introduced the technology to address the concern of increasing physical infrastructure costs in the late 1990s. This was a phase when disaster recovery started gaining importance due to insufficient disaster recovery options, which were proving to be a cause for concern across enterprises.

Expensive infrastructure paved the way for server virtualization which was an instant success resulting in adoption from all quarters of the industry. It was a stepping stone for virtualization to evolve, giving birth to desktop virtualization and VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure).

DaaS has gradually evolved from the shadows of virtualization to provide cost-effective desktop delivery solutions to end users who are otherwise concerned with the upfront infrastructure investments, which is necessary in case of VDI. While desktop virtualization is also referred to as a DaaS offering, the any device factor plays a major role in the evolution of DaaS.

Global market size of DaaS was just over USD 290 million in 2013. Dominated by specialized firms, the market has been identified by the industry only recently when companies like Amazon, Microsoft, VMware and Citrix (already present) expressed their interest in developing the DaaS portfolio of products; the market is now formally born and validated. Enterprises are now inclined towards understanding the technology and its subsequent adoption rates across the globe.
