Research and Markets: Global Data Center Ethernet Switch Market 2012-2016 Report Reveals That One of the Main Challenges in the Market Is Declining Equipment Prices
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/l2bldr/global_data)
has announced the addition of the "Global Data Center Ethernet Switch
Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Data Center Ethernet Switch
market to grow at a CAGR of 14.34 percent over the period 2012-2016. One
of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing
virtualization in network environments. The Global Data Center Ethernet
Switch market has also been witnessing the evolution of data traffic
profiles. However, the declining equipment prices could pose a challenge
to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this market space are Cisco Systems Inc.,
Hewlett-Packad Co., IBM (News - Alert) Corp., and Juniper Networks Inc.
The other vendors mentioned in the report are Alcatel-Lucent SA, Avaya
Inc., Brocade Communications Systems Inc., Dell Inc. (Force 10),
Enterasys (News - Alert) Networks Inc., Extreme Networks Inc., Huawei Technologies Co.
Ltd., and Oracle Corp. (Xsigo Systems).
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Data Centers team
said: ''Data traffic profiles have transitioned from asymmetric e-mail
messages and low bandwidth client-server computing applications to large
data traffic, latency sensitive and high bandwidth intensive computing
applications. Currently, network latency has gained precedence over data
accuracy and even 10 millisecond differences can win or lose customers.
In the 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 Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), storage access, emerging
converged I/O, etc. This data traffic is increasing rapidly and
increases exponentially if any unexpected event occurs across the globe.
For instance, the data centers in financial institutions are flooded
with data traffic in any major up- or downturn in the capital markets.''
According to the report, one of the main growth drivers is the
increasing virtualization in network environments. Virtualization has
increased deployment of multi-core and blade server platforms resulting
in consolidation of storage environments. Virtual networks can be
programmed, bonded to workloads, and are scalable to demand.
