About Workspace Delivery Network
It has been observed that the need for hybrid cloud and pervasive mobility drives the demand for workspace delivery networks. These networks encompass a workspace delivery controller (WDC), which is an application delivery controller (ADC) adapted to the needs of hybrid cloud, mobility, and security and a virtual wide area network (WAN), which provides cost-effective application delivery to branch offices, while optimizing WAN bandwidth.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global workspace delivery network market to grow at a CAGR of 18.42% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global workspace delivery network market for 2016-2020. Market size in this report is calculated based on the revenue generated from WDCs and virtual WANs.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Workspace Delivery Network Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global workspace delivery network market: Citrix Systems, Cisco, CloudGenix, Glue Networks, Talari Networks, A10 Networks, F5 Networks, and Radware.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bigleaf Networks, Certeon, Expand Networks, FatPipe, and Ipanema Technologies.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Reduction of total cost of ownership will be a key trend for market growth. Compared to the traditional packet-based communications over the internet, the WDC methodology is very much efficient as there are fewer chances of an application failure. Furthermore, with the WDCs being connected to the pool of servers and computing equipment, there is an abundant availability of computing resources. Further, WDCs can be adopted independently of the computing platform underlying the WDC infrastructure. WDCs also hold the capability to route the data packets to the respective servers where they are getting executed by doing required investigation of the packets. WDC is the heart and the core element of the workspace delivery network. Therefore, the advantages of WDC works well for the growth of the workspace delivery market.”
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be the increased virtualization in enterprises. Virtualization involves maximizing the capabilities of a PC or server. Through virtualization, new server environments can be built without new hardware, many machines can be maintained by a single physical server, and applications can be streamed from the server to desktop.
Further, the report states that loss of data packets in networks will be a challenge for the market. A major challenge for the workspace delivery market is the efficient management of data being transmitted from end-user systems to computing devices. There is also a need for routing the computing results to specific end-user system from where the application was initiated. During this process, there are chances of data packets being lost in transition, leading to the retransmission of the data packets. With some packets being received with a delay, there is an increased burden on the workspace delivery network to align those packets accordingly. Workspace delivery network performs the task of routing the packets and monitoring the execution of the applications.
