Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Data Center IT infrastructure Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global data center IT infrastructure market: Arista Networks, Brocade Communications Systems, Cisco Systems, Dell, Hitachi, HPE, IBM, Juniper Networks, Lenovo, and NetApp.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: A10 Networks, Extreme Networks, F5 networks, Fujitsu, H3C Group, Huawei Technologies, Inspur Technologies, Intel, Micron, NEC Corporation, Nimbus Data, Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent), Oracle, Pure Storage, Quanta Computer (QCT), Samsung, Seagate Technology, Sugon Information Industry, Super Micro Computer, Toshiba, Western Digital, and Wistron Corporation.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing adoption of all-flash storage arrays. For the past two years, the all-flash storage array market is experiencing significant growth that is heavily contributed by hyper-scale data center facilities. According to Technavio, the global data center all-flash storage array is projected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 20% during the forecast period.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is expansion of business operational needs. The inception of cloud-based service offerings and the growing need for generating meaningful information using big data analytics from the data generated via IoT devices has prompted many enterprises to either build data center facilities, co-locate, or use cloud-based services for business operational purposes. Vendors in the data center infrastructure market are also constantly innovating with their products to improve the business operational efficiency.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is security of IT infrastructure. There is an increased awareness of operating a secure data center environment as the number of cyber-attacks disrupting business operations has increased significantly over the past decade. The increased adoption of cloud-based applications has allowed many front-end attacks through webpages and web-based applications to enter the data center level. Cyber-attacks destroy critical business data, organizations' web page, and also leads to the destruction of physical infrastructure housed within data centers.
