Datacenter automation software – additional information

The datacenter automation software includes software that runs on distributed, non-mainframe platforms to assist in the automating of servers, network, and other datacenter management tasks, across both physical and virtual environments. This may include the automation of scheduling and monitoring tasks, providing an overview of server nodes and configurations, automating routine processes, deploying patches and updates, and generating reports, as well as bringing datacenter controls and processes in line with business standards and policies.

In recent years, the datacenter automation software market has seen increasing demand for cloud and virtual datacenter automation. IT departments are turning to datacenter automation to support large-scale environments and infrastructure, while simultaneously improving operational efficiency and productivity. The growth of the cloud datacenter automation software market is beginning to eat into revenues of the older on-premise automation software market, and it is becoming more common to see datacenter automation functions being bundled into cloud infrastructure and platform services.

A further development in the market has been the growth of open-source datacenter automation solutions, which have affected sales of commercial software. In fact, the commercialization of open source software has led to the rapid growth of some of the market's newer companies, while at the top end, companies such as VMware, IBM, HPE, BMC, and Cisco compete for a market share in the 2 billion U.S. dollar datacenter automation software market.
