Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Data Center Network Infrastructure Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global data center network infrastructure market: Arista Networks, Brocade Communications, Cisco, Juniper Networks, HPE, and Dell

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: A10 Networks, Agema Systems, Allied Telesis, Array Network, Avago Technologies, Avaya , Black Box Network Services, Check Point Software , Citrix, Edgecore Networks, Ericsson, Extreme Networks, F5 networks, Fortinet, Fujitsu, H3C Group, Huawei, Lenovo, Mellanox Technologies, Moxa, NEC, NETGEAR, Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent), Oracle, Palo Alto Networks, Penguin Computing, PLANET Technology, Plexi Network, PLUMgrid, QCT (Quanta Computer), QLogic, Riverbed (Thoma Bravo), Silver Peak, Super Micro Computer, and Telco Systems

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Data is growing at an exponential rate. Many organizations are replacing traditional network infrastructure with the moderns such as 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE and 50GbE switches to gain the ability to scale in real-time as the business demands increases. Only hardware appliance is not enough to scale; it is also important that enterprises adopt the best software that interfaces with the hardware to provide higher performance. Many organizations struggle to identify the software that matches their hardware to meet the application needs to be competitive in the market.”

According to the report, the development of advanced technologies such as cloud-based services and big data analytics has fueled the demand for data centers globally. Currently, developed countries are the largest markets for data center operations. However, the number of data centers in developing countries has increased considerably, which is fueling the adoption of Ethernet switch and router products in these countries. Networks infrastructure such as Ethernet switches, routers, storage networking, and other appliances namely, WAN optimization and firewall play a vital role in the operation of data centers with regard to the availability of resources to the end-users without latency. Therefore, data center operators are expected to increasingly adopt 10GbE and 40GbE to cope up with the increase in business demands.

Further, the report states that the deployment of network infrastructure that are capable of offering higher performance and availability has increased. These network infrastructures act as a bridge between the servers running application and end-users. The built-in hardware and software security of these switches are important to safeguard them from violation. For example, a core switch security has the potential to bring down the entire network and cause business/service disruption. The configuration of these infrastructures actually plays a vital role in ensuring security.
