IPMI, which stands for Intelligent Platform Management Interface, is a standardized interface used in data centres and server environments to enable remote monitoring and management of hardware components. The increasing demand for efficient data centre management solutions is driving the adoption of IPMI as a standardized interface for monitoring and managing hardware elements in data centres and server environments. Secondly, the widespread adoption of cloud-based services is further boosting the market.
Based on component, the global Intelligent Platform Management Interface Market segmentation includes Hardware and Software. The hardware segment is the largest segment of the IPMI market, accounting for most of the market share. This is due to the fact that the hardware components are essential for the IPMI functionality.
The BMC is the central component of the IPMI system, and it is responsible for managing the other hardware components. Sensors & controls are used to monitor the health of the system, and the memory devices are used to store the IPMI configuration data. The IPMI management software is used to manage the IPMI system, and the IPMI agent software is used to communicate with the BMC.
Based on end use application the intelligent platform management interface market is divided into servers, storage devices, and telecommunication equipment. Servers further bifurcated into rack servers, blade servers and tower servers. IPMI is an essential part used on modern servers since it gives managers remote access to the server interface, power control, and hardware parameter monitoring for preventive maintenance.
For instance, the intelligent platform management interface was developed primarily for server management by HPE, Intel, Dell, and NEC. Due to the growing deployment of data centres, the need for servers across all regions is driving the market for the intelligent platform management interface (IPMI).
By Region, the study provides market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. In terms of revenue, North America is the largest and most advanced market for the Intelligent Platform Management Interface Market. A large demand for server monitoring in data centres and an increase in ICT spendings in the region are expected to drive the growth of the market. United States is home to the most advanced technological companies of the world.
These companies work on massive amounts of data. For data storage, data management, backup and recovery of data, datacentres are widely used. Around 2700 data centres are present in the US and it is the highest number amongst all countries. Thus, massive adoption of data centres in the region for the data storage and maintenance is taking place. For instance, Equinix- data centres provider has a total of 236 International business exchange data centres across the globe. While 106 of them are in the United States. Thus, there is a strong demand of servers monitoring in these data centres and the IPMI market is growing at a rapid scale in the region.
