SMEs' Linux server OS adoption across India

The Linux server operating system (OS) has grown its way to a prominent position in the Indian server OS market, with its adoption rate increasing from 7.0 percent to 8.1 percent, as per the Springboard Research.

The rise in Linux adoption in India has been fuelled by procurements coming from a wide range of verticals including the government, education and enterprise segments. Small and Medium Enterprises (1-999 devices) dominate the Linux server OS market with an adoption growth rate of 8.3percent, 2.4 percentage points higher than that for large enterprises (>1,000 devices). Factors such as low cost of ownership, a perception of minimised security threats, lack of piracy-related issues and a strong online support community have been the main growth drivers for Linux adoption. Constrained by limited budgets, Linux proved to be the right product for SMEs who were looking for a solution that could help them meet their business goals at a low cost.

 

"An interesting trend that has gained momentum in the recent past is the SME demand for customised solutions. Today, enterprises look for products and solutions specifically designed to meet both their and their customers' needs and open-source solutions offer that flexibility," said Sameer Bhatnagar, Senior Research Analyst, Springboard Research. "Also, high technical skill availability is one of the key accelerators of greater Linux adoption in India."
