Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Data Center Fabric Market in US 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Data Center Fabric Market in US: Alcatel Lucent, Brocade Communications Systems, Cisco Systems, Dell, Extreme Networks and Hewlett-Packard

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Arista Networks, Avaya, Extreme Networks, Huawei Technologies, Oracle, TIBCO Software (Vista Equity) and Unisys

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The usage of data center fabric switches and routers has grown because of their benefits such as low-latency and improved performance. These switches enable communication between the server, storage, and software as a converged network. SDN enables software abstraction of the physical network infrastructure, which can be programmed based on the application needs. SDN offers benefits in terms of the support of multi-tenancy, virtual machines (VM) provisioning, and improved application performance”

According to the report, the US is a major market for CSPs such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. Many large enterprises, SMEs, and several government agencies are adopting cloud-based services offered by CSPs. Cloud-services are cost-effective, and reduce the need for owning and operating data center infrastructure.

Further, the report states that vendors in the market are offering fabric products that are free from vendor lock-in issues. However, with the growing complexity of the data center environment, any minor issue might result in disruptions with regard to business continuity. The compatibility between existing fabric switches and Open Ethernet switches plays a vital role for undisrupted network-based operations such as bandwidth limitation, low-latency, and protocol support.
