Europe, the Middle East, and Africa Datacenter Network Forecast, 2015–2019

Europe, the Middle East, and Africa Datacenter Network Forecast, 2015–2019

This IDC study provides a five-year forecast (2015–2019) for the EMEA datacenter network market. The 2015–2019 data is forecast; the 2012–2014 data is actual historical data. This study covers manufacturer revenue for Ethernet switches (Layer 2–3), ADCs (Layer 4–7 switches), WAN optimization, Fibre Channel switches, and InfiniBand switches. The study segments the market by customer type as well as geographic sub-regions: Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, and the Middle East and Africa."Aside from significant growth potential, fueled by a booming cloud services market, growing application traffic, and widespread digitization in vertical markets, the datacenter networking market will experience significant disruption and transformation over the forecast period. SDN architectures, flattened network topologies, and increased use of original design manufacturing (ODM) equipment will transform datacenter networks entirely in the years to come." — Network and Infrastructure Program Director Emir Halilovic, IDC EMEA.
