Data Center Networks have a very significant role in an organisation as they connect all the data center resources together in order to interlink the servers. Increasing number of Data Center Networks are being deployed to meet the increasing demand of cloud computing. Smooth working of data centers helps businesses to improve their employee’s potency, increase revenue and reduce operational cost.
Driven by the factors like increasing demand for powerful Ethernet switches, storage area network components, businesses shifting their focus towards cloud computing and several others, Data Center Networks market is expected to reach as high as $ XX billion dollars by 2020, growing at the Compound Annual Growth Rate of XX% over the forecast period. On the other hand, growth in end user devices such as smartphones are putting pressure on the Data Center Networks. Most of the Data Center Networks are old device-centric security models which make them vulnerable to new evolving threats. These factors can restrict the growth of the Data Center Market. To counter these challenges major manufacturers have shifted their focus to make more advanced, simpler and secure data center network solutions.
Trends such as virtualization, cloud computing have major influences on Data Center Networks. Need for high speed interfaces are increasing rapidly. Virtual Switches which utilizes faster links has eliminated the use of physical switches. Ethernet Switches are expected to see the largest growth primarily because of the adoption of more advanced 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 100 GbE data center switching platforms and adoption of Fiber channels will drive the growth of Storage Area Network components. The applications of Data Center Network are now much broad and distributed and are more flexible in their usage as they utilize compute and storage resources. The Asia Pacific region is expected to hold the largest market share in global market in the forecast period.
