Research and Markets: Global Data Center Integrated Workload Systems Market 2014-2018: One of the Main Challenges is Concerns Regarding Vendor Lock-In

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dkj2xg/global_data) has announced the addition of the "Global Data Center Integrated Workload Systems Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Global Data Center Integrated Workload Systems market to grow at a CAGR of 49.16 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in big data. The Global Data Center Integrated Workload Systems market has also been witnessing the increased virtualization in network environments. However, the concerns regarding vendor lock-in could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Key vendors dominating this space are Hewlett-Packard Co., IBM Corp., and Oracle Corp.

Other vendors mentioned in the report are Cisco Systems Inc., Dell Inc., EMC Corp., Fujitsu Ltd., Hitachi Ltd., Intel Corp., NetApp Inc., Teradata Corp., VCE Company LLC, and VMware Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: In recent years, the markets have witnessed an increase in virtualized networking environments in data centers. Additionally, customers have been wishing to tune their networks but they have been limited by constraints in 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 and bonded to workloads, and they are scalable to demand. Moreover, they do not require physical network reconfiguration. As they are not restricted by physical boundaries, the network resources can be efficiently utilized across noncontiguous clusters. With traditional networks it has been difficult to manage and integrate the systems they support and the services delivered by them. Earlier attempts to bridge this gap further increased the complexity of the network configuration in understanding the application status and requirements, observing the network traffic, and then replying according to the configured policy.

According to the report, among the numerous growth drivers for the Global Data Center IWS market, increase in big data is the major growth driver. In data centers, highly complex data traffic moves in a random order between storage, internet, servers, and intranet. Moreover, there are varieties of traditional and advanced data-intensive applications, including VoIP, storage access, and emerging converged I/O.
