Report Description

Technology and architectural changes in the data center have vitally changed the way of configuring and deploying storage systems, servers, and data center network equipment. Data centers are crucial part in networking as they the hub of huge amount of data. Next-generation data center needs infrastructure which is adjustable to applications and in which network intelligence is use to improve application performance. Data center switching solutions help in meeting the exceeded demands of applications requiring high bandwidth on network infrastructure. Such solutions dynamically regulate application traffic flow by tracking virtual manager movement within or between diverse data center sites. Data center switches automate processes and apply rules for better user experience with minimum human intervention. InfiniBand switches are highly adopted to meet the requirements for low-latency computing, high bandwidth, storage and management over a single fabric and to reduce the cost of data center switches. Growing bandwidth requirements in data centers are providing huge opportunities for data center switch market. Moreover, growing trend of bare-metal switches are expected to contribute prominently in the growth of data switch market. Data center switches provide large volume data transfer, high speed and energy-efficient hierarchical flow. Data center switches also help in maintaining rapidly increasing data volumes and quick data processing.

Within the network infrastructure, increasing need for easier data center management and automation is observed. Moreover, high demand for efficient cloud services is contributing significantly in the growth of data center switch market. Furthermore, web applications and internet multimedia content is growing rapidly which is anticipated to drive the market growth during the forecast period.

However, different data centers have different architectures raising the compatibility issues which is a major challenge for data center switch market. Furthermore, presence of self-reliant enhanced servers is expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.

The market for data center switch can be segmented on the basis of type, technology, bandwidth, end-use vertical and geography. The market can be segmented on the basis of type into core switches, distribution switches and access switches. Core switches are high-throughput, high-performance packet and frame movers. While, access switches require more number of ports to transfer the data from one network to other in order to balance the load. Thus, these switches ensure better connectivity between servers and networks. The market, on the basis of technology can be segmented into Ethernet, fiber channel and infiniband. On the basis of bandwidth, the market can be segmented into less than 1 GBPS, 1 GBPS to 10 GBPS, 10 GBPS to 40 GBPS and greater than 40 GBPS. The market, on the basis of end-user can be segmented into telecommunication, government, cloud service providers and others. Enterprise segment can be further segmented into large size enterprises and small and medium size enterprises. Geographical segmentation of the data center switch market includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America.

The North American market is expected to grow prominently due to the adoption of cloud services by various organizations in order to reduce their cost of building new data centers for maintaining their business. Furthermore, prominent data center infrastructure service providers and cloud service providers such as Microsoft and Amazon Web Services are based in U.S.

Key players operating in the data center switch market are Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Cisco, Huawei Technologies, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Arista Networks, Juniper Networks, NEC Corporation, Lenovo, Mellanox Technologies, Extreme Networks, Fortinet, ZTE Corporation, D-Link, Silicom, Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), Dell, Bay Microsystem, Cumulus Networks, Edgecore Networks, Centec Networks and H3C Technologies.
