Research and Markets: Data Center Network Equipment Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018

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

One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing deployment of data centers. The Global Data Center Network Equipment market has also been witnessing the increasing virtualization in network environments. However, the growing complexity of network architecture could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: 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.

The key vendors dominating this market space are:

  • Cisco Systems Inc.
  • F5 Networks Inc.
  • Hewlett-Packard Co.
