DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/927vr7/global_data) has announced the addition of the "Global Data Center Network Equipment Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Data Center Network Equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 11.97 percent over the period 2013-2018.
Among the numerous growth drivers of the Global Data Center Network Equipment market, increasing deployment of data centers is the major one. Enterprises are increasingly deploying data centers to reduce the cost of infrastructure, technology, and human resources. Moreover, data centers are helpful in disaster recovery and also improve network infrastructure security. Hence, enterprises are consolidating their applications and services into a single point of operation by centralizing their IT systems.
In recent years, there has been an increase in virtualization in the networking environments of data centers. Also, while customers have wanted to tune their networks, they have been limited by the constraints of existing network management tools. Virtualization has increased the deployment of multi-core and blade server platforms, resulting in consolidation of the storage environment. Virtual networks can be programmed or bonded to workloads and are scalable to demand. Moreover, they do not require physical network reconfiguration. Hence, because they are not constrained by physical boundaries, network resources can be efficiently utilized across non-contiguous clusters. With traditional networks it has been difficult to manage and integrate the systems they support and the services that they deliver. Earlier attempts to bridge this gap further increased the complexity of network configuration in terms of understanding application status and requirements, monitoring network traffic, and then acting in accordance with the configuration policy.
Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is the growing complexity of network architecture. Data center network solutions are growing more complex because vendors are incorporating more features to meet the varying needs of organizations. For instance, organizations are adding more servers to their data infrastructure to handle the increase in data. The use of a growing number of servers has increased the complexity of handling network switching equipment.
The key vendors dominating this market space are:
- Cisco Systems Inc.
- F5 Networks Inc.
